Oxford, England. August 23, 2012
The PLMIG announces that the third PLM-ERP Workshop will be held in Germany from 06-08 November 2012. The Workshop will be hosted by ZF Friedrichshafen AG, who will also be taking part in the event.
The Friedrichshafen Workshop is the third in a series of three events that will give PLM and ERP specialists the chance to work together to formalise their common understanding and to generate a neutral, globally-applicable PLM-ERP Handbook.
Each workshop will produce a new version of the Handbook, building on the previous results. Everyone who participates in a workshop will receive the results of the whole series.
This means that participants in Friedrichshafen will benefit from the results of the first two Workshops in Bristol, UK (see MCADCafe 13 August), and Atlanta, USA ( MCADCafe 22 August). The Friedrichshafen Workshop will still offer the same open platform to discuss delegates' own PLM-ERP issues, but will be working with the most advanced iteration of the Handbook.
The Workshops have a completely interactive, 3-day format, and will use real PLM-ERP issues and examples as the raw material to generate a definitive neutral solution. User companies may therefore find it valuable to send colleagues from both backgrounds. Vendors, integrators and consultants are also welcome, as the best solution will come with involvement from all parts of the industry.
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.
