PLM and ERP Glossary

PLM and ERP Glossary

This glossary contains brief definitions of about 30 terms that can be most frequently encountered while describing computer-aided activity of manufacturing enterprises. Today, such activity is primarily understood as application of product life-cycle management (PLM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) that, in their turn, consist of component-subsystems mentioned in this glossary. Most of the terms used in the domain of industry automation have stable English abbreviations that since recently are widely used in Russian technical texts. Therefore the Russian version of the glossary is built as an English-Russian dictionary: each English abbreviation is initially explained in English, then it is directly translated into Russian, and finally is described in less than 100 Russian words. The English version below presents only English explanations of English terms.
