PDM Tuotetiedonhallinta

Tuotetiedonhallinta - PDM (in Finnish)
ANTTI SÄÄKSVUORI, ANSELMI IMMONEN

Tiedot : 2002, sidottu, 201 s.
ISBN: 951-762-796-3

Tuotetiedonhallinta (PDM – product data management)  kasvattaa merkitystään etenkin valmistavan teollisuuden ja telesektorin yrityksissä. Tuotteiden ja komponenttien elinkaaret lyhenevät; samalla uusia tuotteita on saatava markkinoille entistä nopeammin.
Tämän vuoksi yritykset muodostavat verkostoja, joissa kukin toimija erikoistuu tuotteen tietyn osa-alueen suunnitteluun tai valmistamiseen. Yhteistä lopputuotetta koskevan tiedon täytyy kulkea yritysten välillä nopeasti, virheettömästi ja automaattisesti, jotta pystytään kilpailemaan tehokkaasti kansainvälisillä markkinoilla. Ensimmäinen suomenkielinen perusteos tuotetiedonhallinnasta määrittelee alan käsitteistön selkeästi ja luo pohjan kehitysprojektien suunnittelulle, käynnistämiselle, läpiviennille ja jatkokehittämiselle.  Kirja havainnollistaa myös tuotehallinnan strategista merkitystä ja liiketoiminnan kehittämistä sekä sähköisen liiketoiminnan mahdollistamista tuotehallinnan avulla. Teos sopii sekä käytännölliseksi projektioppaaksi että
kurssikirjaksi.
