PLM - An Expanding Crystal Maze Held Together By Loosely Bound Definitions And Boundaries

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Industrial Automation & Process Control Group at Frost & Sullivan ( ) will host an analyst briefing teleconference on Wednesday, June 21, 2006 at 3 p.m. EDT.

In the manufacturing world of the 1980's and 1990's, the efficient and skilled plant/operation managers managed the entire life cycle of a product. Presently, the manufacturing world is a totally different scenario. With the gradual depletion of skilled and efficient designers, engineers and managers over the last ten years, has posed a challenge for manufacturers worldwide. And PLM solution was born. However, do we really have a complete PLM solution within the market, as it is flooded with a host of solutions with differing definitions and unclear functionality?

"PLM has been the sweet spot of the manufacturing industry and software solution providers for the last five years. It's a growing market and everyone wants a share. However, why should this trend lead to an unstable expansion of the market which is held loosely by unclear definitions and some opposition by home grown solutions," observes Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager Kishan M. Bhat.

Those interested in participating in this exclusive outlook should send an email to Tori Foster, Email Contact, with the following information for registration: Full Name, Company Name, Title, Telephone Number, Fax Number and Email address. Upon receipt of the above information, a confirmation/pass code for the live briefing will be emailed to you.

This briefing will benefit PLM vendors, service providers, implementers and end-user community by providing general directions and trends into the industry.
