Oxford, England. March 08, 2012
As part of the launch of the international PLM Governance Benchmark, Knorr-Bremse will host the first PLM Benchmark Coaching Workshop at its Headquarters in Munich, Germany in 3 weeks' time, on 28-29 March 2012.
Thales will host a matching Benchmark Coaching Workshop at Thales University, Paris, France on 16-17 April 2012.
The events are part of a short series, and discussions are under way to set up a third Workshop in Ohio, USA during April.
Registration for the Munich and Paris events is now open, and full details are available on the PLMIG web site.
About the Workshops
The Coaching Workshops will give detailed insights into how the proposed Governance Benchmark will be structured and managed, but they are also valuable training events in their own right. Some companies intend to use the Coaching Workshop so that they are able to run internal benchmarks around their global sites.
The format and Agenda of each Workshop is the same. The PLMIG will run the Workshops and produce the deliverables at the end of the series. Companies based anywhere in the world are welcome to take part, and can choose their preferred event to suit their favoured timing or location.
About the Hosts
Knorr-Bremse and Thales are global corporations with immense investments in PLM. They are hosting the PLM Benchmark Coaching Workshops to assist collaboration amongst user companies in order to develop new frameworks and techniques for understanding and quantifying PLM.
