Data management involves using, storing, curating, and consuming information. According to Cragin et al. in 2007, data curation actively manages data through its lifecycle, ensuring its usefulness to scholarship, science, and education by enabling discovery, maintaining quality, adding value, and providing reuse over time.
Quality and value are crucial to business, so clear and concise information is essential. Closing the gap between physical and digital documentation promotes transparency and enables efficient responses to issues and changes.
PLM is a strategic approach that supports collaborative creation, management, dissemination, and use of product definition information for the extended enterprise, integrating people, processes, systems, and information.
Product Lifecycle Management systems provide visibility to track a product, its components, and required documentation at every stage, ensuring quality or highlighting problematic areas.
These systems are useful for C-suite overviews and normal users, eliminating manual data compiling and reducing burnout.
