Ministries of defence face a number of challenges which put requirements on how product information is managed, communicated and shared with different stakeholders during the lifecycle of products. This Paper highlights the main requirements, trends and the business drivers; all derived from Eurostep’s experience.
The objective of this paper is to provide an overview of the requirement for Defence Ministries and OEMs to manage information around their weapon and other systems, i.e. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). Overall the paper is intended to provide input to the creation of a strategy/roadmap for Defence industry organizations to take forward.
