My company is in the process of PLM software selection. We've sent Request for Tender outlining all our requirments to vendor representatives of MatrixOne (with their Matrix), Smarteam and Teamcenter (from UGS). These days they'll make presentations (3-4 days per vendor) after which we hope we'll be able to make decision which way to go.
I would appreciate any educated/experience based input anyone might have in regard to these three packages above i.e. good, bad, hard to implement, slimy vendor etc.
