Oxford, England. May 02, 2012
After an extensive discussion phase during Q1 (starting in MCADCafe February 08), Thales, Knorr-Bremse, DCNS and Honeywell met in Paris, France to confirm the full details of the PLM Governance Benchmark.
The Benchmark will cover the full scope of PLM, and the full extent of the companies' global operations. The core schedule has two stages, based around the methodology of the PLM Benchmarking Handbook:-
- Stage 1: (Level 0 & Level 1 Analysis) - June 04 to July 27.
- Stage 2: (Level 1 & Level 2 Analysis) - Sept. 10 to Nov. 30.
Benchmarking on this scale and in this depth of detail has never been possible before in PLM. It is an opportunity to:-
- Compare your PLM implementation against some of the most advanced user companies
- Discover how efficient you are in using budgets and resources
- Develop an informed PLM roadmap and strategy for 2013 onwards
- Share in a body of results that will become the central reference point for PLM performance
- Confirm how your PLM spend impacts the business bottom line
This is an international benchmark, and companies from anywhere in the world are welcome to participate.
The Benchmark schedule has two "integration points" at which new companies can join. Companies that make the decision by the end of May can blend in with the Core Schedule during Stage 1; and companies that decide to join by the end of June can be aligned by the start of Stage 2. Whenever a company joins, it will share the same integrated set of results with the other Benchmark participants.
