Oxford, England. August 13, 2012
The PLMIG announces that the first PLM-ERP Workshop will be held in the UK from 18-20 September 2012. The Workshop will be hosted by Altran Xype at their headquarters in Filton, Bristol.
The Bristol Workshop is the first in a series that will give PLM and ERP specialists the chance to work together to formalise best practices and to generate a neutral, globally-applicable PLM-ERP Handbook.
Each workshop will produce a new version of the Handbook, building on the previous results. The second Workshop is being arranged for Atlanta, USA during Week 43, and a third is planned for southern Germany in early November. Everyone who participates in a workshop will receive the results of the whole series.
The Workshops have a completely interactive, 3-day format, and will use real PLM-ERP issues and examples as the raw material to generate a definitive neutral solution. User companies may therefore find it valuable to send colleagues from both backgrounds. Vendors, integrators and consultants are also welcome, as the best solution will come with involvement from all parts of the industry.
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.
