Overview:

Corporate Product Specification Management is fairly new in batch processing industries. Up to now, it lived a low profile life in the form of spreadsheets, word docs and paper, but with the increasing supply chain dynamics specifications become more than ever the focal point as the indispensable backbone. Automotive, electronics and assembly businesses have known the theme for a number of years as PDM (Product Data Management). AMR defines its variant for the process industries as PLM: Product Lifecycle Management. Welcome to the world of acronyms!
