PLMIG issues the PLM-ERP 10-Year Challenge

Oxford, England. September 25, 2012 - One of the findings of the first PLM-ERP Workshop in Bristol is that, even in 10 years' time, many companies do not expect to have completed an enterprise-wide PLM-ERP integration.

At first glance this may seem to be a sensible outlook, because real-world companies can have many different PLM and ERP systems within their various divisions and geographical locations, and gain more with mergers and acquisitions.

Alternatively, this could just be a symptom of widespread low expectations caused by the difficulties of integrating the two environments.

If PLM-ERP cannot be completed in within a decade, then it is likely that it will never be completed, and the problem will limp on forever. The purpose of the PLM-ERP Workshop series is to develop common tools and methodologies that enable PLM-ERP to be resolved, so that companies can plan towards a known future solution.

The PLMIG therefore challenges companies to look 10 years ahead, and decide whether the future PLM-ERP environment looks acceptable. If it should be improved, the Workshop series continues in Atlanta and Fridrichshafen and will deliver the PLM-ERP Handbook and its methodology by the end of the year.

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; and has previously run workshops that have produced the PLM Benchmarking Handbook; the PLM-SCM Guidebook; and the PLM Maturity Reference Manual.
