Free Webinar on How Product Manufacturing Information Can Enable Digital Transformation

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 Product Manufacturing Information Enables Digital Transformation." The webinar will take place on Thursday, 9 November 2023, at 11:00 a.m. (EST) and will last for one hour.

Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) is the technology that associates Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) and annotations directly to 3D models and has been available for over 20 years. During this time, it has evolved from propriety data used within a single solution provider's tools to a STEP standard with cross-solution interoperability.

In this webinar, CIMdata will cover the basics of PMI, how it fits into a comprehensive PLM strategy, some common PMI use cases, and describe a project that leverages PMI as part of a digital transformation or product development process improvement program.

Attendees at this webinar will:
  • Learn what PMI is.
  • Learn how PMI can be applied.
  • Gain an understanding of the value of PMI by applying use cases.
  • Learn what is required to get PMI deployed and functioning properly within an organization.
  • Learn how to incorporate PMI into a digital transformation program.
  • Learn how to leverage PMI to shorten time-to-market and improve data and product quality.

According to Tom Gill, CIMdata's Practice Manager for PLM Enterprise Value and Integration and the host for this webinar, "PMI is a proven foundational technology that enables model-based enterprise strategy and positively impacts time-to-market and product quality when properly implemented. While success stories exist, few companies have fully embraced PMI and incorporated it into their processes. The process changes enabled by a robust implementation of PMI should be on every PLM roadmap."
