Providing Education and Knowledge to PLM Practitioners and Users
Ann Arbor, Michigan, 6 September 2011—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) management consulting and market research firm, announces the formation of its newest business practice focused on the growing needs of PLM organizations for comprehensive non-biased PLM education for PLM professionals.
Peter A. Bilello, President of CIMdata, announced that James E. McKinney, PLM Leadership Practice Manager, will lead the delivery of and on-going enhancements to CIMdata’s comprehensive PLM education offerings for industrial companies who are considering and/or implementing PLM, as well as for people working at PLM technology and service suppliers. “With the proliferation of new technologies and PLM solution offerings, many people struggle to understand the benefits of PLM, and how it can be best implemented in their company. Also, many companies in industries that have not traditionally employed PLM are starting to feel that PLM can benefit their bottom lines, if they only knew how,” commented Mr. McKinney. Mr. Bilello added, “Our PLM certificate program has been so successful that we are expanding it and adding more emphasis to it by adding a Practice Manager with extensive PLM industry knowledge and education and training experience. This new practice area will help our clients not only understand the many benefits of PLM, but how they can be realized in their own organizations.”
CIMdata’s PLM Leadership offering, for which Mr. McKinney will be responsible, is primarily comprised of a set of well-defined, assessment-based PLM education certificate programs. These programs have been developed to respond to the needs of the PLM economy that CIMdata helped pioneer and has continued to serve for over twenty-eight years. CIMdata offers PLM education for staff, implementers, trainers, and anyone else that needs an increased understanding of PLM and its potential impacts on business. Classes are held at various locations around the globe to maximize convenience for our customers.
