Abstract

The product lifecycle management (PLM) is the process of managing the entire lifecycle of a product from the idea generation, through the design, development and manufacturing to service and disposal of the product. Testing often is considered to be an activity to perform during the product design and development phase. However, the information about how a product is designed and tested is useful for designing the maintenance and the monitoring and maintenance data can provide useful information in developing the next generation of a new product. The main objective of this chapter is to understand how testing process in integrated into the product lifecycle. This chapter reports a case study in a UK based manufacturing company and based on that develops a framework to highlight the importance of testing. Also, proposes a conceptual model of how testing activities can be managed in the product lifecycle management process.
