PDM (Product Data Management)
Explanation:
I suspect that it is taken from English. Look at the following citation:

http://www.johnstark.com/pd4.html

"These systems are known generically as Engineering Data Management (EDM) or EDM/PDM systems. Within the generic class of EDM/PDM systems are many types of systems such as Product Data Management (PDM) systems and Engineering Document Management Systems (EDMS)."


Since they used an abbreviation, I would keep it abbreviated.
