PLMeter – the first step to a holistic PLM in your company

Is your product data digitized or already „PLMized“?

Optimizing product processes starts with determining the location.

  • Is PLM just an IT system for managing your development data for you?
  • Do you live your product processes across departments?
  • Are the effects of product changes traceable along the product life cycle?

We will help you answer these questions.

Our PLMeter analysis method was developed on the basis of years of PLM project experience and shows you:

  • where your company stands in terms of PLM. 
  • which fields of action generate added value from PLM.
  • how PLM can make a greater contribution within the value chain.
  • how to optimize your investment in PLM.

abat is one of the leading IT service providers for the automotive and manufacturing industries in Germany. With us, your product process is in the foreground. The PLMeter is the first step of our proven PLM consulting.
