think3, a provider of technical services and customer support services for manufacturing companies, has introduced TD PLM, a new web-based system for implementing a product life cycle management system.
According to the company, TD PLM encompasses the entire product life cycle, from concept right through to EOL disposal. The suite is rapid to implement through a series of independent steps with predefined costs and with an ROI which can be calculated during definition of the implementation project.
think3 said that TD PLM enables the management of information, processes and human resources with a simple and effective approach. TD PLM is modular and easy to personalize making it an ideal tool for the technical design office and other enterprise environments which need to manage parts lists, CAD documentation, design processes, product maintenance and spare parts and assistance services, added think3.
It is reported that users can access a centralized database via web clients, world-wide, without having to install other applications. Security is guaranteed with single sign on procedures. The system can be accessed over internet via a standard web browser. There is no software installation or maintenance costs.
TD PLM is based on three-tier architecture with web-based clients and integrates with most ERP, MRP and CAD systems because it uses the same graphic user interface. This feature improves collaboration with company departments and businesses using other tools, added think3.
