    Forum introduction and CIMdata PLM Community update.
  • 08:45 – 10:15 | The State of PLM – Today’s Market and Leading Trends
    Peter Bilello, President, CIMdata [bio]
    A review of the current state of the PLM industry with emphasis on trends and issues, including augmented intelligence and other emerging trends that are critical to PLM software and service providers. CIMdata will present its views on these trends and the impact they have on participants in this increasingly challenging market.
  • 10:15 – 10:30 | Networking Break
  • 10:30 – 12:00 | 2018 Market Analysis Results
    Stan Przybylinski, Vice President, CIMdata [bio]
    Recognized for many years as the best source of comprehensive and accurate insights into the evolution and direction of the PLM industry, CIMdata’s annual PLM Global Market Analysis is first revealed at the PLM Market and Industry Forum. Further detail will be reported in the CIMdata PLM MAR series of reports.
  • 12:00 – 13:15 | Networking Over Lunch
Afternoon Session – Thursday, 11 April 2019
  • 13:15 – 15:00 | Focus on Augmented Intelligence
    Data-driven intelligence can augment human innovation in products and product-service combinations as well as in enterprise solutions that help develop those products. In this session, CIMdata will lead discussions that expand on the Forum theme.
    • 13:15 – 13:50 | Intelligence for Product Lifecycle Innovation
      Stan Przybylinski, Vice President, CIMdata [bio]
      The competition is on to bring better and cheaper product and product-service combinations to the market faster by leveraging intelligence hidden in enterprise data. In this presentation, CIMdata will describe how the state-of-the-art in artificial intelligence is being applied to leverage PLM-related data and how data flows between its adjacent enterprise systems. A discussion about the future potential and maturity levels of PLM-related intelligence over the next decade will also be included.
    • 13:50 – 14:25 | Beyond Generative Design
      Peter Bilello, President, CIMdata [bio]
      Ideas for Generative Design, including topology optimization, were developed in the 1980s but did not fully take root. The evolution of additive manufacturing has sparked new interest, helping users to produce objects not manufacturable by traditional methods. We are evolving to Generative Engineering (or Human-Assisted Design) by leveraging improvements in computer and software capability to create an environment that will revolutionize not only product engineering and development, but the entire lifecycle that PLM oversees. This presentation will provide a vision for how technologies such as Generative Design, Simulation & Analysis, Big Data Analytics, Advanced Materials, and Robust Design will converge to an Augmented Intelligence environment that will revolutionize product development over the PLM lifecycle.
    • 14:25 – 15:00 | Predictive Maintenance–Benefits of Closing the Product Lifecycle Loop
      Tom Gill, Practice Manager, PLM Enterprise Value & Integration, CIMdata [bio]
      Using field data to improve product development and generate high margin aftersales revenue are common PLM program objectives. Leading companies are starting to achieve these objectives and realize the benefits. This presentation will share research on strategies and technologies that have successfully used field data to improve products, customer relationships, sales, and margins.
  • 15:00 – 15:15 | Networking Break
  • 15:15 – 16:15 | Short Takes on Hot Topics
    There are a number of enabling technologies that support Industry 4.0 that solution providers and their customers must understand fully to support their successful adoption. These presentations include CIMdata’s initial research on these topics and look for the audience to engage to provide their key insights.
    • 15:15 – 15:45 | Getting to Markets of One
      Stan Przybylinski, Vice President, CIMdata [bio]
      Many companies pursuing digitalization or Industry 4.0 strategies share a common goal: being able to profitably serve markets of one by making their products and processes more configurable. In this presentation, CIMdata will discuss the importance of advanced variant configuration management capabilities and how PLM market leaders are responding.
    • 15:45 – 16:15 | Digitalization and MBSE: Market Trends, Challenges & Opportunities
      Peter Bilello, President, CIMdata [bio]
      The widespread digitalization of discrete product development processes combined with the ever increasing complexity of today’s cyber-physical systems is increasing focus on connecting and managing the digital thread of data and models from the early conceptual systems design to the downstream functions more typically managed within the scope of PLM. CIMdata will discuss the key trends in Model-Based Systems Engineering, highlight where real progress is being made, and identify the challenges still to be addressed.
  • 16:15 – 16:30 | Closing Comments
