Safran’s Chief Digital Officer for Product and Services to Present at CIMdata’s PLM Road Map™ EMEA 2018 Conference

The presentation will consider what is needed to achieve value from product lifecycle management (PLM).

ANN ARBOR, Michigan, USA, 12 September 2018—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces that Mr. Daniel Dubreuil, the Chief Digital Officer for Products and Services at Safran, will make a presentation at PLM Road Map EMEA 2018. This one-day event will be held in collaboration with PDT Europe. The events will take place on 24 & 25 October at Le Meridien Hotel, Stuttgart, Germany. The theme for PLM Road Map is “Digitalizing Reality—PLM's role in enabling the digital revolution.”

Digital Transformation is seen as the next step in the evolution of PLM. However, Digital Transformation goes beyond PLM, exploiting a company’s PLM resources in a much broader business context where PLM is at the center. To achieve these new possibilities PLM resources must evolve to become more accessible, understandable, and flexible to serve a broader range of business uses. At a time when many still wonder whether Digital Transformation is real or just the latest buzzword, CIMdata research suggests that industry is taking the promise of Digital Transformation very seriously. In his presentation, “Value Creation through Synergies between PLM and Digital Transformation,” Mr. Dubreuil will present the key issues and strategies for the successful integration of PLM and Digital Transformation.

Mr. Dubreuil started his career at Airbus, Toulouse where he was involved in engineering and production on the A300/A310 assembly line and Pylon Plant. He then joined Digital Equipment Corporation as a Marketing Manager for Aerospace before joining Airbus Missiles (now MBDA) where he served as Chief Information Officer and the Director of the Components and Equipment business unit. After returning to Airbus Commercial Aircraft he held the position of Plant Director and Project Leader for the A380 Final Assembly Line in Toulouse. After that assignment ended he became Industrial Director of Airbus Helicopters, later rejoining Airbus Commercial Aircraft as Deputy Quality Director, and then moving on to the position of Director of the A380 Task Force. In May 2011 he joined Safran as Group Chief Information Officer and in November 2016 as he was appointed Safran’s Chief Digital Officer for Product and Services.

PLM Road Map EMEA, in collaboration with PDT Europe, is the must-attend event for PLM industry leaders and PLM practitioners globally—providing independent education and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and relationships critical to the industry germinate and take root.
