PLMIG calls for Global PLM Benchmark

Oxford, England. August 30, 2011

A major PLM user company ($5bn sales, 16000 employees, operating in 29 countries) has asked the PLMIG to help benchmark its PLM implementation with other real PLM users. If other user companies wish to join in, then the PLM Interest Group will run a collaborative benchmarking project that will take place during the first quarter of 2012.

This will be an international benchmark, on a scale and depth of detail that has never been done before in PLM. It is intended for companies that are seriously interested in quantifying the strengths and weaknesses within their PLM landscape and that are willing to commit time and resources to do so. For its part, the PLMIG will provide the leadership, coordination, benchmarking parameterisation, and full documentation.

The benchmark will provide participating companies with quantified answers about the whole scope of their PLM implementations:-

  • "What, exactly, is achievable in PLM today, and in the future?"
  • "How well does our operational set-up support our business strategy?"
  • "How do we compare with other companies in the functionality that we provide?"
  • "How efficient are we in using budgets and resources compared to other companies?"
Because it will be a global benchmark, companies and corporations from anywhere in the world are welcome to take part. Depending on the response, we may be able to provide a regional structure for the USA, Europe and Asia.

For information about how your company could take part, see the PLMIG web site or contact Roger Tempest at Email Contact.
