Product lifecycle management is one of the key challenges for the manufacturing industry:the efficiency and performance of products must meet the initial customer requirements and they must be improved and maintained throughout their life.
Companies have identified new business opportunities in this area and have invested in the development of life cycle services.
Product lifecycle management encompasses the entire product life cycle from its conception to its use, to its disposal and eventual reuse. To a large extent, lifecycle management is also an end-user activity and a key element of asset management.
Good practices in lifecycle and asset management support the decision maker in weighing up, for example, the benefits of introducing a new technology and improving system performance against the costs and risks of acquisition and use.
The book examines life cycle and lifecycle management models and management methods from the perspective of different stakeholders, with an emphasis on exploiting data, information, and knowledge in decision making.
