I'm looking for product management software. I don't mean project management software like Jira, Redmine or new agile ones like PivotalTracker.

I mean software to manage (and possibly design) a physical product, something similar to ProdPad that also covers rest of product lifecycle.

The software has to be able to:

  • Create specifications
  • Manage part suppliers
  • Generate bill of material
  • Create assembly information / guides

Basically I'm looking for something like ProdPad that would allow me to manage product from start to finish: Idea(s) → Design (including box design, etc.) → Creating BoM → Manufacturing → Packaging.

Products I'd like to create are physical ones, mainly based on embeded electronics so integration with part suppliers and design software would be a huge plus.

Platforms: Preferably a desktop application (preferably with Linux support, but I can live with Windows), I'd also consider a web app.

Can be paid up to 1000$
