This new and expanded edition has been fully updated to reflect the numerous technological and management advances made in PLM since the release of the third edition in 2014, including chapters on both the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0.

Key activities in PLM Initiatives include Organisational Change Management (OCM) and Project Management.
