Oxford, England. February 29, 2012
After talks with North American companies about the 2012 PLM Governance Benchmark ( MCADCafe February 08), Knorr-Bremse is offering to host a Benchmark Coaching Workshop at its Bendix location in Elyria, Ohio.
This will follow exactly the same format as the 2-day Benchmark Coaching Workshop that Knorr-Bremse will host at their headquarters in Munich before Easter.
The PLM Governance Benchmark is the first ever opportunity for major international companies to conduct a comprehensive benchmark of their PLM environments. The documentation and management will be handled by the PLM Interest Group, and the results will give an unparalleled understanding of strengths, weaknesses and best practice techniques.
The Coaching Workshops will give a complete insight into the Governance Benchmark, but they are highly valuable events in their own right. Workshop participants will receive all of the tools and working material, and be trained in how they are applied. Some companies intend to go on and use this internally, to benchmark and then align the way that their divisions and global sites are implementing PLM.
Companies based anywhere in the world are welcome to take part, and now have a choice of:-
- Munich, Germany - March 2012
- Elyria, Ohio - April 2012
The actual Workshop dates will be set next week, and the aim is to arrange them so that are suitable for those who would like to participate. There are still a few days, therefore, to advise us which dates you would prefer. You can do this by contacting Roger Tempest at Email Contact. Full details of the Workshops and the Benchmark can be found on the PLMIG web site.
