The best practices and standards found in TM Forum Frameworx enable effective Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), taking the pain out of service creation and management, automating the lifecycle using sophisticated product and service catalogs, and providing a clear view of the associated business processes and interfaces.
This program transforms ad hoc approaches to managing product and service lifecycles into systematic, repeatable and consistent processes that organize cooperating roles and create accurate and up-to-date catalogs of product definitions.
Forum contribution and value
- Provide best practices for PLM with supporting examples
- Definition of product lifecycle processes and lifecycle states
