Bringing together PLM and ALM for continuous development for the Internet of Things

The successful delivery of IoT products requires the convergence of systems engineering, mechanical design and software development activities.

To achieve this goal, product lifecycle management (PLM) and application lifecycle management (ALM) are linked to create a system-level Digital Twin across product variants and a true Digital Thread across the lifecycle.
