PLMIG publishes PLM Standardisation Journal

Oxford, England. December 12, 2012

In order to provide a common structure to the general understanding and application of PLM, the PLM Interest Group has run a PLM Standardisation initiative during the past two years.

Workshops in Gothenburg, Munich, Milan and London during 2011 provided the core material, and a Standards Implementation Workshop in 2012 generated the methodology.

The results of the entire series have now been published in the 44-page Q2 2012 PLM Journal. The Journal gives a guided tour of the current standards that apply to PLM, and sets out a methodology for achieving the best results in any implementation.

Focusing on the benefits of standardisation, rather than "standards by committee", the Journal shows how PLM can be formalised in a very practical way. Every PLM implementation is different, and re-invents much of what has already been done elsewhere. Localised rules and best practices are formed by experienced users and managers, but they are rarely harmonised and can cause problems when brought together in an enterprise-wide scenario.

An intelligent approach to standardisation not only resolves these problems, but builds a platform from which the whole long-term direction of PLM can be influenced and managed. The Journal is an essential reference work for PLM Managers who want to maximise the effectiveness of their implementation.

The PLM Interest Group
The PLM Interest Group is the leading neutral industry group for PLM. It has developed the first ever PLM Governance Standard, together with a new generation of applied PLM material including the PLM Best Practice Library and the Path to PLM; and has previously run workshops that have produced the PLM Benchmarking Handbook; the PLM-SCM Guidebook; and the PLM Maturity Reference Manual.
