Free Webinar on How Education Supports PLM Deliberations

This presentation is part of CIMdata's educational webinar series.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, "How Education Supports PLM Deliberations." The webinar will take place on Thursday, 12 October 2023, at 11:00 a.m. (EST) and will last for one hour.

When a PLM solution suite is selected, the solution must be properly architected and implemented to support an organization's business processes and methods to maximize its value in a digital transformation. This process involves integrating many current solutions and capabilities and new tools. Data usually comes from and goes to multiple repositories and parts of an organization; not all functions and tools use data in the same way and same form, so accommodating all business processes is not always straightforward.

In this webinar, CIMdata will share its experiences based on helping clients through their PLM journeys and digital transformations using education to improve understanding and execution.

Attendees at this webinar will:
  • Understand how to define solutions and data architectures for product development, manufacturing, implementation, support, and other activities—sustaining the full product lifecycle.
  • Learn about the best ways to educate cross-functional PLM teams on—PLM concepts, best practices, and the selected PLM solution's capabilities.
  • Understand the sources of PLM knowledge.
  • Hear about ways to manage business rules.

According to John MacKrell, CIMdata's Chairman and the host for this webinar, "Many organizations CIMdata works with today are moving from PLM solution selection to implementation with the aim of maximizing cross-functional business performance. Preparing team members for this journey is paramount to achieving success and doing so without unnecessary delays."
