PLM International Research Foundation - Global Survey Results

Oxford, England. October 02, 2014 -- In order to investigate the potential for a new PLM International Research Foundation to support advanced research into Product Lifecycle Management ( MCADCafe Sept. 26), the PLM Institute in Geneva carried out a worldwide Survey of academic and research institutions.
44 responses were received from 28 countries, and the results show a massive potential for what might be achieved. The academics who took part in the Survey identified 21 areas in which the PLM of the future could transcend today's constraints:-
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Auto-Updating Products
  • Mass Customisation
  • Cyber Physical Products
  • Thinking Components
  • Self-Generating PLM
  • Closed-Loop PLM and the Internet of Things
  • Human vs System Classification
  • Human Effects on PLM
  • Human Role within the PLM Network
  • 'Own Language' PLM
  • Auto PLM Learning
  • PLM Across Continents
  • SMEs within the Ecosystem
  • Data Acquisition, Reliability and Mining
  • Data Structure and Architecture
  • Information Deconstruction for Re-Use
  • Transformation of Non-Parametric Data
  • Generic, Adaptive, Auto-Boundary Dissolution
  • Full PLM Modelling
  • PLM Business and KPI Modelling
Furthermore, the response to the Survey has been more or less worldwide. With universities from different countries or even continents proposing similar ideas, the opportunities for international collaboration are immense. If the PLM International Research Foundation were funded it would create a single PLM research programme that unifies the globe.
A new Proposal has been published that aims to set up an open discussion meeting in Europe by the end of January, with possible follow-on discussions in the USA, China and India.
There is more information about the PLM-IRF on the PLMIG web site; and copies of the Survey Results and the Proposal can be obtained via Email Contact.
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.
