PLM Road Map™ 2014 is the must-attend event for industry executives and PLM practitioners globally—providing independent education and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and relationships critical to the industry germinate and take root. The theme for this year’s conference is “PLM-enabled Continuous Product Development and Delivery for the Automotive & Transportation Industry and Supply Chain.”
Product development today is a set of discrete processes and deliveries around specifications and intellectual property (IP) exchange. Design reviews and delivery schedules drive IP development and exchange. Some industries are driving toward a more continuous model, with more synchronous collaboration and, in the case of software, continuous product delivery. Of course, software is not hardware or electro-mechanical. Continuous product development and delivery requires new technologies and work arrangements.
Speakers at PLM Road Map™ 2014 will provide examples from automotive, transportation, and other industries that highlight the people, process, and technology challenges in moving toward a more fluid, integrated continuous product development and delivery model.
Central to the mission and character of PLM Road Map is encouraging the continuous collaboration and synergistic innovation between all members of the PLM ecosystem, including industrial users, subject matter experts, software providers, consulting services firms, industrial and academic institutes, system integrators, and market analysts—all of whom are partners in realizing the vision and value of PLM, especially in the emerging, more sustainable circular economy.
