I recently left my job as a compliance officer at a financial services firm to join a compliance software company as a domain expert. The jump is larger than I expected. There is a lot about the software development process that eludes me. I am trying to understand what product management is or rather what its role is so I can produce better work product.

Our company is an established printer with a long history. We are quite profitable relative to our peers. It is obvious, however, that the printing industry in general is in decline. We are also noticing that clients are ordering less volume. So far we have been able to hold prices but the early indicators from our sales team is that we will see push back on our prices next quarter. All of our management discussions focus on efficiency and optimizing equipment utilization. It seems like we should be looking at a significant strategic alternatives. For example exiting the publishing business or acquiring competitors.

I work for an established software company in operations, which means that I do not have any role in product management or developement. I want to pitch an software project idea to the product management team based on my work with our clients. I have written most of the business case with revenue projections, development costs, and continuing maintenance costs based on some internal and external data. However, I'm struggling with the advice I've seen to consider opportunity costs. How do I get that data? Does my business case need to include it?
