Oxford, England. October 12 2015 -- The question of whether PLM delivers on its promises is almost as old as PLM itself. In the ordinary world, if you buy something then you should be sure of what you will be getting. In the PLM world, there has been no easy way of proving this.
When people ask: "Was PLM worth doing?", the answers are not readily available - even though a corporate PLM spend can run into millions of dollars. Everyone will gain if it can clearly be shown that the spend is worthwhile.
Since this issue was first raised in MCADCafe ( June 25) work has been under way to address it, leading to the first ever PLM Delivery Workshop in Manchester, UK on 03-05 November. This will be the starting point for the PLM industry to agree what 'PLM Delivery' really means.
Registration for the PLM Delivery Workshop is now open. Delegates from all types of organisation and any country are encouraged to attend. A detailed Agenda and registration details are available on the PLMIG web site.
