and PDT NA 2019

Product Lifecycle Innovation—PLM for Professionals

29-30 May | The Marriott Hotel | Tysons Corner | Washington D.C. | USA



As PLM continues to expand its coverage there are plenty of opportunities for innovation across a product’s entire lifecycle. As a PLM professional you need to be in a position to manage the complex PLM legacy, as well as understand where the new capabilities in and around PLM can and will most likely take us.

PLM Road Map NA 2019 and PDT NA 2019 is the premier meeting place for PLM professionals like you—one where industry leaders will report on two fronts—the classics of PLM and the upcoming PLM enablers. Simply put: pain points and trends!

In classic PLM we experience the pain points of understanding and having to decide on the borders between MBOM, EBOM, and SBOM—that is if the borders still exist! Configuration Management and Collaboration are additional areas that have been around a while, where innovation can still provide significant advantages. New business models require rethinking. What was the state of the art isn’t anymore.

The PLM professional also needs to be equipped to manage and plan for the introduction and democratization of Modeling & Simulation, Model-Based Systems Engineering, Predictive Maintenance, Additive Manufacturing, Augmented Reality, and Cloud. Investment and training/education need to go where the best pay-off is, but PLM professionals must make sure that recent and promising technologies are seamlessly integrated into the total PLM solution. Standardization at the right level can enable an architecture where old and new may co-exist for the benefit of all in transformed digital networks.

Today, PLM is a topic that is hotter than ever given the recent flurry of VC investments, as well as a long list of mergers and acquisitions. PLM must be a major part of any organization’s Digital Transformation strategy.

Don’t miss out and plan to attend PLM Road Map NA and PDT NA in May of 2019 to hear from PLM leaders, learn about success and trends, and take the next step in your journey as a PLM professional.
