PLMIG calls for Research into 'Own-Language' PLM

Oxford, England. July 10, 2012

The PLM Interest Group is calling for initial expressions of interest from universities and academic institutions that would like to take part in a world-wide research project into the subject of 'language-independent PLM'.

The generally-accepted working language for PLM is English, and it has become accepted practice for all non-native English speakers to standardise on English for PLM so that everyone can understand each other.  This is a workable solution, but it still represents a tremendous barrier to PLM understanding and adoption in the majority of countries in the world, as well as in large multi-national corporations.

The PLMIG aims to establish an international research programme with the goal of enabling the natural adoption of PLM in any country of the world.  The challenge goes well beyond simple translation, calling for an array of research strands including:-

  • what elements of PLM need to be translated, and how?
  • are these elements the same for any country?
  • how can quality control be applied with confidence in an unknown language?
  • are there linguistic, cultural, educational or other factors specific to some countries?
  • are there PLM strengths and weaknesses in different countries, that change the emphasis?
  • is the current state of the art sufficient, or are new capabilities required?
  • do current vendor offerings offer a practical solution?
  • how can current research initiatives be combined or incorporated?

This will be pure PLM research, and will be focused just as much on PLM as on linguistics.  The aim is to establish new knowledge that can be built upon by applied researchers, PLM vendors and user companies to apply PLM seamlessly in a global context.

The first step is to find out what research potential exists around the world, and interested organisations from any country are invited to make an initial response via the PLMIG web site or .

The PLM Interest Group
The PLM Interest Group is the leading neutral industry group for PLM. It has developed the first ever PLM Governance Standard, together with a new generation of applied PLM material including the PLM Best Practice Library and the Path to PLM; and has previously run workshops that have produced the PLM Benchmarking Handbook; the PLM-SCM Guidebook; and the PLM Maturity Reference Manual.
