PDM and PLM. You’ve likely heard of both before and you might be wondering, what exactly does each one do?

PDM (Product Design Management) software, like Autodesk Vault, gets your data under control with a central source of collaboration. Vault manages all of your engineering and design data, like your CAD files, Microsoft Office files, and more.

PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) helps you manage all the moving parts of the entire product lifecycle, from sales, to engineering and your PDM software, all the way through production and service, minimizing inefficiencies that come from having data in various locations and systems.

The combination of PDM and PLM helps you stay on task for milestones and deliverables, and minimizes the impact of change and quality management challenges.
