Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is a strategic business approach supporting the collaborative management of product and process de nition information from concept to end of life. This information management is carried out across the extended enterprise and by a set of IT solutions integrating digital engineering and numerical simulation systems. Those systems are used to de ne, assess and validate the physical behavior of products or complex systems. Digital engineering and numerical simulation systems thus enable to minimize the use of physical prototypes for design decision making. Regarding the reduction of product development costs and times, the integration of digital engineering and numerical simulation systems in PLM is not completely achieved. Indeed, the heterogeneity of digital engineering and numerical simulation systems and models does not facilitate the link with others systems of the PLM environment. The aim of this paper is to present literature survey on digital engineering and numerical simulation systems integration in PLM environment enabling an effective collaborative product development
