Do any of the following statements sound a little too familiar?
  • We have experienced PLM implementation failures in the past.

  • We are new to implementing PLM.

  • Our last PLM implementation failed to demonstrate the value we were expecting.

  • Our users have failed to realize the benefits of the last implementation.

  • We did not have the right level of knowledge for our last PLM implementation and it did not work out well.


Based on CIMdata's over 30 years of experience in the PLM industry the answer is probably a resounding YES!

Selecting appropriate technology for PLM is only part of the story. Properly implementing your PLM system can have a significant impact on how well PLM will support your business. Join CIMdata’s Practice Manager for PLM Leadership, Jim McKinney for this one hour long webinar which will cover the key aspects of implementing PLM, and how to gain the many benefits that PLM provides.

What will we cover?
