The Product Development Company, today announced that Volvo Group has signed an agreement moving PTC from a directional decision to a firm strategic decision to use Windchill, PTC’s PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) software, for Volvo Group’s strategic VPDM (Virtual Product Data Management) program.
