The Missing Link Between Engineering & Manufacturing
Bluestar Dynamics PLM is the leading product lifecycle management (PLM) solution developed for the Microsoft AX and Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise platform. As a native D365/AX application, Bluestar Dynamics PLM brings the engineers onto the platform used by the rest of the enterprise to bridge the gap between engineering and operations.
