When developing a product using collaboration engineering, various divisions need to have access to product data. These departments are, among others, sales, production planning, process planning and order processing. Collaboration along with increased data security enables a speeding up of processes.

The before mentioned demands are perfectly united in SAP PLM. All users of PLM have Internet-based access to all product and process data during the whole product life cycle. One of the main functions of a PLM system is the management of documents such as technical drawings, 3D models, NC programs and text documents.

SAP PLM also delivers functionalities for automatic version management, classification of documents as well as a search tool that operates via classification attributes. The status network describes the route of a certain document within a company up to its release or archiving. For any type of document, this network can be tailored to the needs of a company. Thus, every employee can access any and all important documents regardless of time and place.

Controlled access to data is ensured through a flexible and highly efficient authorization concept.
