Oxford, England. October 28, 2010
The PLMIG announces a project to create an international Reference Model for the benefits of implementing PLM.
The objective of the PLM Benefits Reference Model project is to develop an industry-agreed standard PLM Benefits Model to help everyone involved in PLM move forward more effectively. It will enable manufacturing companies to implement PLM faster, and will reduce sales cycles for vendors of PLM products and services.
The Model will build on the results of workshops supported by Siemens PLM and PTC in London and Boston in 2006, and will answer the question: "What should we expect to gain when we implement PLM?".
As a globally-based project, it will also disseminate best practice ideas between North America and Europe to address the issues raised by the recent PLM in the USA study.
A Steering Group is being formed, representing the different constituencies in the world of PLM, to drive forward this international collaborative project and guide the direction of the Model development.
The PLM Interest Group
The PLM Interest Group is a global Group which brings together its members to work proactively to solve their PLM problems. It is developing a new generation of applied PLM standards, and has previously run workshops that have produced the PLM Benchmarking Handbook; the PLM-SCM Guidebook; and the PLM Maturity Reference Manual.
