We are at the beginning of a fourth industrial revolution, an era that builds and extends the impact of technology in innovative and unanticipated ways. The importance of Product Data Management (PDM) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) continues to grow in industry, yet it is the exception rather than the rule in engineering and technology education. The goal of this book is to provide a resource for educators to expose students to the concepts, capabilities and processes associated with PDM so that they are familiar with the tools and methods they will encounter in their future careers.

PDM is a complex tool and this book strives to present the material in a structured way. Industry professionals will find this book valuable as well as they find themselves in unfamiliar territory. It provides a solid foundation in clear, understandable language without vendor bias or hype. We hope you will find it useful.
