Odoo Product LifeCycle Management (PLM) Software

Customers look for quality products and choose companies that consistently supply the best. A brand with good ratings and high customer satisfaction leads the race.

Manufacturing companies put immense effort before creating products. Research and analysis help managers decide on the perfect combination of quality, affordability, and consistency.

Every manufacturing company goes through a Product Lifecycle for each of its products. The products can range from computers, cars, aircraft, machinery, packaged goods, fashion, pharma, etc.

Let's look at the three stages of a Product Lifecycle -

Beginning of Life (BOL): It is the product's beginning stage, which includes manufacturing design, planning, and prototype creation. You can divide the process into stages, sub-stages, etc. It helps you keep track of your ideas and product creation.

Middle of Life (MOL): The end of the BOL stage is when a product is manufactured and used by a consumer. The next stage is the MOL where the user can give you feedback on your product. You can use this information to revise your product, and fix errors.

End of Life (EOL): At the end of the product's lifetime, they are recycled, retired, or disposed of. You can choose to get back product parts from consumers at this stage.

Here's where a PLM comes into place

Having software manage these stages of product lifecycle efficiently is key to business success. Customer satisfaction increases tremendously when product manufacturing is done right. Without a Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) system in place, achieving quality standards and customer satisfaction is difficult.
