PLMIG proposes PDM Managers' Meeting and calls for input to Wish List

Oxford, England. September 22, 2009

There is no agreed body of knowledge about PDM, despite the fact that people have been devising solutions to the problems of configuration, structure, product data management and systems integration for several years, and companies around the world have spent millions of dollars on the subject.

The challenge is to focus attention back onto PDM, and to do something about formalising the vast amount of technical expertise that PDM specialists have gained. There needs to be some way for PDM managers to share their detailed knowledge with each other, and save the overhead of everyone having to develop their implementations from first principles.

One way forward would be to hold a PDM Manager's Meeting, so that the people who really know about PDM can work together constructively.  There is no point in having a "talking shop" - the meeting would need to have a structured format so that the time is used constructively, and an agenda that leads to new deliverable material that the participants can take back with them.

The PLMIG aims to host one or more such meetings, probably launching in Europe with a follow-on event in the USA.  The results of the meetings will be linked, so that they build on each other.  The agenda of the meetings will be set by discussion with PDM Managers, and the discussion period will run for the next 3-4 weeks.  

PDM Managers are invited to read the background at the PLMIG web site and to send their views via Email Contact.
