      Ok.. can someone explain how this relates to PLM Quality Management (QM)?
      If I understand right, the focus of Customer COE stands for Customer Center of Expertise.

      SAP defines this in the following way:

      "By acting as a single source of truth for all matters related to SAP in your organization, your Customer COE works closely with SAP to set up an internal support desk, coordinate projects, and deliver relevant information to the user base."

      i reported this as not relevant to the PLM Qualtity Management (QM) tag and it was denied.  (That was before I was set up as moderator for this tag).

      How does a COE relate to the QM module??  If QM qualifies as a tag, so should these other PLM tags:

      PLM Classification
      PLM Document Management System (DMS)
      PLM Enterprise Asset Management (EAM)/Plant Maintenance (PM)
      PLM Product Lifecycle Management
      PLM Project System (PS)
      PLM Quality Management (QM)
      PLM Variant Configuration

      If any of these tags are used, it should be the higher level tag PLM Product Lifecycle Management.
