How is a PLM system different from an ERP system?

A PLM system complements an ERP system. An ERP system focuses on business execution processes such as inventory, logistics, and financials. A PLM system focuses on everything about your product from concept through engineering to production and service. PLM provides processes that connect everyone involved in the product lifecycle to a central source of information. Connecting PLM with ERP increases product data usage in more automations and workflows across the enterprise for greater business advantages.
