Product Data Record

Product Data Record

The Product Record, or Product Data Record, is an Information technology management concept used to refer to data associated with the entire lifecycle of a product from its conception, through design and manufacture, to service and disposal. It includes all the information used to develop, describe, manage and communicate information about products and critical linkage between relevant data elements. It is a key concept of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Product Data Management (PDM), because it represents all the data that PLM processes and software manage and allow access to.

The Product Record is the single version of the truth for product data and implementing PLM is not possible without first designing the Product Record. However, PLM solutions often do not physically host all the Product Record data in their database but only create the logical connections so information can be accessed in its native application.

The Product Record was also a product lifecycle management (PLM) publication published and distributed quarterly by Agile Software Corporation, that was acquired by Oracle Corporation in May 2007. It is unclear if the Product Record publication will continue under Oracle's management.
