The development of complex products are transforming digitally with the help of Industry 4.0, which are reshaping the way the product is designed and manufactured across all industrial sectors. My book talks about the integration of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) with the evolution of technological innovation in the era of Industry 4.0. Manufacturers are regularly concentrated on enhancing exceptional premium quality, efficiency, and security besides dynamically connected with customers. It has in fact end up being evident that the abiding with generation of challengers is being digital transformation in design, development and manufacturing of a product through continual service tracking. IIoT data insights compliment PLM, which promotes additional product improvement to a various level. This book helps product development companies and manufacturing industries to realize the importance of digital connectedness between mechanical, electronic and software development, as well as, cross-enterprise expertise from design through manufacturing to support, service, and maintenance.

My book provides a high level overview of the smart product development through smart manufacturing materializes within the smart ecosystem. Designers develop product designs from a set of needs after that hand off ended up design to production, which takes care of production process with PLM systems. Manufacturing companies can able to check out real world product usage and problem data throughout as well as dynamically connected to consumers with PLM, Application Lifecycle Management, Service Lifecycle Management, and top quality systems to make it possible for data-driven closed-loop Lifecycle management. To take care of smart product development, connected products throughout their end to end lifecycle, including manufacturing operations, PLM technology must be carefully incorporated with  Enterprise Resource  planning, Manufacturing Execution Systems through IIoT along with other Industry 4.0  innovations and big data analytics that process information returning from sensors attached to the product. IIoT will fundamentally change the way manufacturers develop products, with emerging new technologies that needs to be well integrated with PLM. IIoT information coming back right into PLM systems can enables all product related data to be offered for decision making among the cross functional team members of New product development or New product introduction, not just product improvement or engineering.
