Today´s product development usually takes places in a project organization. But the "worlds" of product data and project management are not linked good enough yet to enable optimal development cycle times, cost and product quality. There are software tools implemented that support the handling of product data and others that support project management but the link between both is not implemented satisfactory up to now. This contribution takes a look at possible connection points between both worlds from three different points of view. It wants to give a hint on where a connection between Product Lifecycle Management and project management would have the most positive effects but does not introduce an interface between both types of software tools.
