PLMIG publishes PLM Best Practice position statement

Oxford, England. March 02, 2015 -- Every PLM implementation should be aiming towards PLM Best Practice, but it is currently impossible to say what "Best Practice" is. With no common parameters or metrics to make comparisons, any claim that a technique or methodology is "Best" is entirely subjective.
 
The PLMIG programme for 2015 is built around the theme of:- "Active PLM Improvement". As members apply toolsets to generate a working set of financial metrics, a quantified picture of their 'As-Is' PLM situation is created. The metrics can be re-measured at the end of the year to show the progress that has been made.
 
The interaction during the course of the year will identify many areas of effectiveness and excellence, and the PLMIG will develop a neutral framework for these so that PLM Best Practice becomes practical and quantifiable.
 
The paradox is that PLM implementations should still be aiming towards Best Practice, even before Best Practice has actually been defined. Pursuit of PLM Best Practice is within the reach of everyone, from new adopters to the most experienced implementors. It extends the breadth of PLM thought, uncovers potential mistakes, and acts as motivation for improvement.
 
To assist with this, the PLMIG has published a Position Statement on PLM Best Practice that implementors can use to align their thinking until the neutral framework has been defined.
 
The PLM Interest Group
The PLM Interest Group is the leading neutral industry group for PLM. It has developed the first ever Standard for PLM Governance, and also the first complete Project Justification methodology for quantifying PLM. Previous PLMIG workshop series have produced the PLM Benchmarking Handbook; the PLM Maturity Reference Manual; and the PLMuERP Handbook.
