    Product lifecycle management (PLM) implementation and adoption involves extensive changes in both intra- and inter-organizational practices. Various maturity approaches, for instance based on CMM (Capability maturity modeling) principles, can be used to make the implementation of PLM a better approachable and a more carefully planned and coordinated process. However, there are a number of different types of current approaches which can be thought to fall under the concept of PLM maturity. The aim of this paper is to investigate and analyze the various existing PLM maturity approaches to get an organized picture of the current models and their main background presumptions, goals and restrictions. Thus, we aim to facilitate their proper selection and use to facilitate the implementation of PLM.
