CIMdata’s President, Peter Bilello, to Present at IpX’s ConX18

The presentation will review the current state of the PLM industry with an emphasis on today's major trends and issues.

ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 29 August 2018—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces that its President, Mr. Peter Bilello, will make a presentation at the Institute for Process Excellence’s (IpX) ConX18 conference entitled, “The State of the PLM Industry: Why the C-Suite is Not Happy.” IpX’s ConX18 will take place at the Wild Dunes Resort in Charleston, South Carolina, on 17-18 September. Mr. Bilello’s presentation will take place during day 1 of the conference, on 17 September.

Mr. Bilello’s presentation will review the current state of the PLM industry with an emphasis on today's major trends and issues, including enabling PLM as a digital and transformative enterprise-level innovation platform, and other emerging topics that are critical to the global PLM economy. CIMdata's research and experience reveals that over the past few years industry adoption of many leading-edge PLM technologies, such as analytics and big data, internet of things, cloud computing, augmented reality, and additive manufacturing, have matured from investigation and planning to implementation and production. Despite these advances, many companies are still spending significant time and money tackling PLM's persistent pain points so that they can fully realize the potential value of PLM and its place within their enterprise architecture.

Mr. Bilello has more than 25 years of experience in the development of business-enabling IT solutions for research, engineering, and manufacturing organizations worldwide. He has participated in PLM analysis, selection, implementation, and training; CAD/CAM/CAE/CIM implementation and management; synchronous and lean manufacturing consulting; software engineering; and general data management strategy development and support. He has authored numerous papers and research reports on PLM and related topics, and his articles, commentaries, and perspectives have appeared in publications throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
