Product Lifecycle Management Communities Description

Version 2



    "Managing the overall lifecycle of a product from concept through realization and eventual retirement"


    The Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Community SIGs target SAP business users and technical support personnel involved in managing the overall lifecycle of a product from concept through realization and eventual retirement.  Multiple SAP modules, technologies, and functionalities give PLM a broad range of coverage using foundational cross-application components such as Quality Management, DMS, and ECM.  Our five SIGs can take you from an idea through a product launch, while managing both internal and external regulatory compliance, quality, and project management.


    Special Message from the SIG


    We´re really excited about our PLM Community...we are having fun, and educating our community! Enterprise Project & Portfolio Management (EPPM) [formerly Ideation & Portfolio Management (IPM) and Project Management & Execution (PME)] serve to focus attention on all the different ways product ideas, projects, and portfolios can be handled within SAP, and how they integrate. The existing Environmental Health & Safety (EHS), Product Data Management (PDM), and Quality Management (QM) SIGs continue their missions to inform and educate with a renewed sense of purpose and alliance.


    Interested in joining the PLM Community or its SIGs?  Join the fun...Contact one of the Community volunteer leaders below.


    Special Note: We need leaders in our new Enterprise Project & Portfolio Management SIG. Volunteer today!

    2016 ASUG Annual Conference + SAPPHIRE NOW


    ASUG was founded 25 years ago, when a group of SAP customers met at SAPPHIRE. They shared their stories, the challenges and victories of using SAP technology to drive business at their companies, and found they had a lot in common. They realized that they could save effort, time, and money by learning from one another.

    That group is now more than 100,000 SAP-savvy members strong, and the ASUG Annual Conference is where SAP customers go to get answers, weigh in on SAP product and service direction, and prepare themselves for what’s next in business technology.

    Join us at SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference and connect to the content, to SAP, and most importantly, to each other. We’ll make sure you return to your organization prepared and inspired to take on today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities.

    After all, that’s what ASUG has done for the past 25 years. And we’re just getting started.
