|Abstract:||In today’s competitive economy the systematic development and management of industrial products has become a central issue for manufacturers. In this paper, the field of product lifecycle management is mapped to tribute to its colorful past and promising future. Therefore, a set of well-established bibliometric methods – i.e. (1) citation analysis, (2) co-citation analysis, (3) bibliographic coupling analysis, (4) co-author analysis, and (5) co-word analysis – provides a suitable methodological vehicle. Essential results comprise (1) the documents, authors, and journals with the most impact, (2) the intellectual structure, (3) the intellectual structure of emerging literature, (4) the social structure, and (5) the topics associated with the field. Grounded on these insights, potential avenues for further research are highlighted. Within the characteristic limitations of this kind of literature review, the paper offers content-wise, method-wise, and discipline-wise contributions.|
