Product lifecycle management (PLM), first introduced by automobile and defense companies, aims to reduce development costs and speed up the product development process. This is done by integrating the different phases of a product’s lifecycle into a single system and tracking dependencies and state in a connected manner.

While PLM has filled an important need for large scale product development in automotive, aerospace, and other large industries, a traditional PLM model suffers from major barriers to adoption in the semiconductor space.

IP Lifecycle Management For Semiconductors

A new type of lifecycle management — IP lifecycle management (IPLM) — is required to enable an IP-centric, transparent approach to managing the IP ecosystem for large SoCs.

In this white paper, you'll learn:

  • Adoption challenges for PLM for semiconductor design.
  • What is IP lifecycle management?
  • Reducing total cost of ownership and embracing the customer workflow.

Fill out the form to learn how Methodics IPLM provides an alternative solution with the most critical functions of a PLM system — minus the cost and overhead.
