Welcome to OpenPLM’s documentation!

OpenPLM is a Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software. It is free and license under the GNU Public License v3.


In a nutshell, it’s a software that helps people who work on product development i.e. Doctors, Engineers, Technicians… managing their technical data like CAD files, ECAD files, source codes but also Ms Office/OpenOffice/LibreOffice/GoogleDoc files.

It’s a common vault where all data are stored in a single copy. It makes them easy to find and accessible from remote locations.

It’s a system which also describes the product structures (or BOM) and their changes over time.

That way, it ensures full traceability of the product and associated data from first marketing sketches to production and maintenance stages.
