Staying Ahead of the Curve through PLM Roadmap Reinvention

  • How has the company benefited from PLM's deployment 2 years ago?
  • How has global collaboration been strengthened by consolidating the needs of design, production and vendors into one dynamic platform?
  • PLM, the technology that never sleeps - re-looking at your implementation and finding new areas of improvement
  • Treating PLM like a live organism that needs constant attention, activity and tweaking to maximise development
  • Changing company, people and views to support long term success - cultural challenges
  • Finding quick wins

Is your PLM System running out of steam?

The manufacturing world continues to change at an accelerated speed. New complexities driven by embedded software and cyber-physical system interactions introduce new design challenges. New business models force product designers to rethink everything, from product architecture to supply chains.

Can your PLM system handle these new challenges?

With its roots in a CAD-centric world that revolved around BOM oriented data management and workflow, traditional PLM software is already taxed rapidly reiterating development cycles and incorporate new engineering disciplines such as embedded software.

PLM systems are running out of steam!

As organizations shift their thinking from products to service platforms, and leverage opportunities enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT), they will need to question and reevaluate their product lifecycle management strategies and methodologies, and the role of PLM software.

In this session we discuss the impending challenges in product lifecycle management, explore new approaches leveraging the Internet of Things, and the role of PLM in redesigning your product organization. Specifically, this session explores three key topics:


  • Design for IoT
  • Design for the Business of IoT
  • Is it ‘Design for IoT’ or ‘Design by IoT’?
