What is Product Configuration Management?

Developing, manufacturing and maintaining complex products, often with evolving product configurations, requires a firm grasp of all the information developed by multiple groups inside the organization and in the supply chain. The challenge of managing these complex configurations can lead to costly errors and delays.

Product Configuration Management (PCM) is a process for establishing and maintaining consistency of a product's performance, functional and physical attributes with its requirements, design and operational information throughout its life.

The process is widely used by industrial and civil engineering organizations to manage complex systems.
