Manufacturing is the confluence of product development and product life cycle management (PLM), and supply chain management (SCM) often represented as an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. PLM and ERP are in many companies contradicting. Product development is not fully coordinated with the supply chain, which leads to suboptimal or delayed products. SCM is struggling with implementation of new products in regards to supply chain efficiency, supplier collaboration and product management. The processes are profoundly related to data. The Master Data Management (MDM) discipline relates to systematic approaches to ensuring data in respect to quality, relevance, effectiveness and precision. At least when it comes to SCM. Innovation and quality of innovation, as framed by management of technology, is dependent on, but also limited by, lack of data quality. This paper is reviewing shortcomings in the relation between PLM and ERP as a key element in ineffectiveness for management of technology, innovation and new product development. Based on four case studies in highly different industries this paper proposes a PLM-ERP model where data fundamentally are regarded as shared. Furthermore is a set of analytical requirements proposed consisting of contextualisation, temporality, transparency, integration, and dynamics. The sharing of data is divided between the supplier-oriented functions, the manufacturing, and the customer-oriented functions. Data is suggested to be governed under a broader life-cycle perspective than typical, also including data at conceptual level with appropriate control systems.
