PLM Module in Odoo-15

Product lifecycle management (PLM) defines how a product is managed as it moves through the various stages of its life cycle, including introduction and development, design, production, sales, and services. When a change request for tools, machines, processes, or other items is made, manufacturing design and production use the ‘Engineering Change Order’ (ECO) form. PLM Module in Odoo-15 has the potential of a social enterprise network to improve cross-departmental interaction.

PLM is utilized to manage Bill of Material (BoM) review and product lifecycle tracking based on Engineering Change Orders.
