A CIMdata Dossier: The Circular Economy

The more you read about industrial sustainability and the circular economy the more you hear about corporate leaders who are readying their companies to take advantage of the transformational opportunities that will undoubtedly become available. All this has implications and opportunities for PLM. Most apparent is the need to embed the end of a product's useful life through the creation of innovative new products while at the same time supporting the full lifecycle. Those companies able to do this will be rewarded.

For more information take a look at CIMdata's Dossier on this topic.

Let us know what we should add to this list HERE.
