As a matter of fact, a wide number of factors and variables are influencing services and products on the vocational education and training (VET) market. Product lifecycle management is a conceptual approach which considers a product over its entire lifetime.
There is a high demand for a coherent and practical instrument at VET providers’ level for the monitoring of the lifecycles of VET products with consideration of several variables influencing VET offers.
Summary Each product on the economic market has a certain product lifecycle -so do VET products. Product lifecycle management can be an appropriate tool for the measurement of indicators of a VET product and the management of its lifetime.
