Product lifecycle management and PCB design are intimately related. Companies that implement continuous innovation must continuously improve their designs as new technology becomes available. Eventually, a product will become obsolete and will require major changes, or even entirely new architecture. PLM software can solve both of these problems at once by providing supply chain and obsolescence visibility. When this solution is integrated into your PCB design software, you can immediately identify soon-to-be obsolete technology in your printed circuit board and plan for redesigns or new products early.
