Challenging Requirements Management Issues in PLM Implementation - Findings from a Retrospective Case Study
Paper in proceedings, 2011
In this paper, a recently conducted PDM implementation project in the manufacturing industry is analysed. The aim is to clarify the role and impact of requirements management methods and processes in PLM implementation projects. A literature review summarises existing PLM implementation models. This is followed by an in-depth examination of how a real PDM implementation project was conducted, mapping out the rationale for different courses of actions and the effects they have resulted in. The most challenging requirements management issues in the PDM implementation project are identified and discussed. It is demonstrated that requirements management activities need to form a coherent whole from scoping to testing to contribute to a successful project outcome.
