Review – Product Development with SAP PLM

When it comes to developing a product from concept to release, there are a lot of hurdles to overcome. Thankfully for SAP customers, there is a solution that can help make the road smoother—SAP Product Lifecycle Management.

SAP Press’ latest release, Product Development with SAP PLM, serves as a complete guide to the SAP PLM solution, covering everything from setting up and using SAP Portfolio and Project Management to visualizing your product. The book promises “all the tools you need to succeed with SAP PLM,” and that’s no joke!

What will you learn?

SAP Innovation Management. SAP PPM. Variant configuration. BOM management. Author systems integration. And that’s just scratching the surface.

Authors Eudes Canuto, Bernd Daum, and Michael Rödel—all SAP employees with more than 35 years of SAP PLM experience among them—provide an in-depth look at the solution.


Through the book’s 727 pages, they’ll take you on a journey across all the stages of product development.

Begin with the fundamentals: process models and manufacturing strategies and how data from the two can be mapped into SAP PLM.

Next learn how to set benchmarks with requirements and target management, execute product validation, and implement new change management processes.

Then, once you’re deep into the nitty-gritty of product development, the authors take it a step further by teaching you how to configure your system to meet your specific needs.

Other highlights include requirements and target management; product validation and product structure management; product management; change, release, and configuration management; and collaborative product development.

Explore the innovative solutions SAP brings to the table in SAP PLM

SAP’s PLM solution isn’t just any old product lifecycle management application.

It’s filled with the kinds of bells and whistles that only SAP can provide, and is the perfect tool to succeed with in—as Dr. Jürgen Weiner (Senior VP, SAP) writes in the foreword—the “fourth industrial revolution.”

Explore these innovative tools, including the SAP Engineering Control Center, SAP 3D Visual Enterprise, SAP Product Lifecycle Costing, and more.

See how they can make your production processes more efficient. And then finish off with a section on how S/4 will impact product development in the future!
