Presented by John Knight-Gregson

John Knight-Gregson joins PI Live as part of a special trilogy feature which focuses on product lifecycle management at Jaguar Land Rover. In the first installment, John discusses both the background and the current organisation of the PLM program at Jaguar Land Rover.

  • How did Jaguar Land Rover decide an upgrade was the right choice?
  • What are the future business objectives Jaguar Land Rover hopes PLM will achieve?
  • How do you see your PLM strategy evolving?
  • What do you perceive as the PLM trends in the automotive and manufacturing industry?
  • How was your PLM team structured? • What do you look for in your core PLM team members?
  • As a mature user, how has your PLM department grown, and changed, over the years?
