PLMIG celebrates its 10th anniversary with a review

Oxford, England. January 08, 2014
The PLM Interest Group celebrated its tenth birthday on 01 January 2014, and has published two new PLM Journal issues to mark the event.
In the early years, from 2004 to 2007, the PLMIG focused on meeting specific interests or needs of members. More recently, since 2010, the PLMIG has tackled bigger issues such as PLM Standardisation, the integration of PLM and ERP, and the current initiative to establish a Financial Framework for PLM.
This emphasis on the difficult subjects has meant that some of the lesser issues have remained on the back burner. Q3 2013 PLM Journal looks back at the work of the PLM Interest Group and uncovers the 'Forgotten Subjects of PLM':-
  • Early PLM Issues: that may have been resolved or superseded
  • Still True Today: lapsed only because of lack of attention
  • Failed Initiatives: and what can be learned from them
  • Renaissance Subjects: which are likely to become important again, and
  • Themes for the Future
Not only are the subjects re-examined, but they are presented in the present tense, in the way that they were written at the time. Some commentary text has been added, and some text has been trimmed, but in total it presents a kind of 'time capsule' view of PLM thought in previous years.
This is informative, because looking at old documentation with new eyes highlights the implicit contrast with current thought, and shows how ideas may have changed. If we are to make better progress in the next 10 years than we have since 2004, then we need a clear view of how PLM is evolving.
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. Previously PLMIG workshop series have produced the PLM Benchmarking Handbook; the PLM Maturity Reference Manual; and the PLMuERP Handbook.
