PLM-IRF Launch will enable users and vendors to combine views of the Future of PLM

Oxford, England. Jan 06, 2015 -- The future of PLM is too important to be left to chance, and yet there is no proactive mechanism to look at what will be needed in 10 or 20 years' time. This means that developments in PLM are governed by the way that vendors compete with each other, rather by than an industry-wide, user-vendor view.
 
PLM is moving forward, but current PLM horizons are far too low. This has consequences for industrial companies, and hence for manufacturing prosperity. PLM has the power to affect whole economies, and in many ways is as important as the 'green' tidal wave.
 
The aim of the PLM International Research Foundation initiative is to provide a global platform for advanced PLM research that will support the future needs of manufacturing around the world.
 
The Launch Meeting in Brussels on 27-28 January will be the first time that users, vendors and researchers are able to discuss in person the aims, practicalities, and structure of international PLM collaboration.
 
During the meeting the research ideas need to be reviewed, and the structure of the PLM-IRF needs to be decided. There may need to be a Board to manage its operation and a Steering Committee to advise on the research direction. A task force, or 'Pathfinder Group', will be needed to continue the working programme in 2015, and it will be for the Brussels participants to decide what that programme should be.
 
This is an international meeting. It is open to participants from any type of organisation and from any country. Participation will help shape the future PLM of 10 years' time.
 
Registration for the Brussels Launch meeting is now open, and more information is available via Email Contact.
