Do any of the following statements sound a little too familiar?
  • Incompatibility – Incompatible PDM, CAD, and other PLM enabling solutions comply with different standards, or standard versions, resulting in confusion and costly integrations for data exchange, along with information loss with each exchange.
  • Lack of understanding – PLM solution providers claim adherence to Standard “XYZ”. We are not clear what this really means.
  • Future proofing – Which PLM standards will best ensure future system and data compatibility, thereby minimizing the cost of solution obsolescence?

Standards are good, right? ‘Standard Connectors’ for our cell phones have proliferated. The result is drawers full of obsolete, incompatible wires that just take up space. The same is true in the world of PLM Standards. Which ones are really important? Which ones can have the best impact on our organization and our PLM investment? Which ones will still be relevant in the future? Last year, CIMdata researched over 230 PLM-related standards. We researched deeply over 60 different standards that impact engineering and manufacturing, selecting the top 20 that are really important for your PLM vision. We’ll discuss these top standards in detail, what you should know about them, and why you should care.

What will I learn by attending this webinar?
  • You will learn which PLM standards are important for your business
  • You will learn why PLM standards are needed
  • You will learn where the PLM standards are headed
Join us for this webinar if you want to:

During the webinar you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed.
