Collaborative product definition management (cPDM) software solutions is a strategic business approach applying a consistent set of business solutions that collaboratively provide effective and efficient methods for managing the functions of product lifecycle management (PLM). They help in effective product data management, collaborative product visualization, collaborative product commerce, effective integration of cPDM with enterprise applications, and supplier relationship management (SRM). cPDM software solutions assist in streamlining manufacturing and production processes for efficient business operation. cPDM helps enterprises bring innovative and profitable products to market more effectively in the evolving e-business web-enabled environment. These software solutions are adopted by industries such as the automotive, electronics, industrial machinery, aerospace and defense, process packaged goods, petrochemical, and shipbuilding. TechNavio's analysts forecast the cPDM market in Germany to grow at a CAGR of 7.81 percent over the period 2014-2019.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Several vendors in the apparel industry in Germany are increasingly adopting cPDM solutions to enhance their SCM functions. The cPDM solution provides better visibility and enables continuous and real-time involvement across various units such as merchandising, design, and product development. It also helps in better sourcing and provides a clear picture of the cost of raw materials, components, and finished products. In addition, collaboration and the integration of systems throughout the extended enterprise help achieving high levels of efficiency and better quality. Lectra, a French company, provides PLM solutions to the apparel industry in Germany.”
According to the report, the increase in the demand for product customization has contributed to higher demand for cPDM solutions across industries. Initially, companies used to depend on mass production, which leads to cost reductions. However, the trend has changed from mass production to mass customization. Product customization can lead to the creation of a single bill of modules, which are used just once or multiple times. Thus, there is a shift in the creation of bill of modules from product identity to product technicality. A customer-facing product configurator is used for generation of BOM with the order itself. These details are passed through the production units for manufacturing. cPDM solutions thus act as a tool to manage the life cycle of BOM, as well as management of small components of the configurator.
Further, the report states that several SMEs are finding it very difficult to implement cPDM solutions due to their high cost.
