There are different options for integrating DFR with your PLM system when supporting the new part creation process. There are different variables to consider when considering the best option including:
Do you have more than one PLM system?
Does your PLM system support classification data and structure?
Do you need to see commercial data (e.g. Pricing) and technical data together?
Do you still have legacy parts to classify e.g. new acquistions?
Does your classification structure support all your parts?
