Educational webinar will offer a pragmatic step-by-step plan to implement PLM to manage Additive Manufacturing parts. ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 20 April 2017—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, “The Essential Role of PLM in the Adoption of Additive Manufacturing into Mainstream Production.” The webinar will take place on Thursday, May 25, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. (EDT) and will last for one hour. Over the years, Additive Manufacturing (AM) has been primarily used to produce models, prototypes, and one-off parts made of non-production ready materials, so governance of enterprise solutions, such as PLM, was not required. Now, with recent advances in materials science, new high performance AM machines, improved CAD and simulation tools, together with commercial pressures to make things in lower volumes but faster, lighter, stronger, and more cheaply, an exciting new era for AM is emerging. To fully adopt AM

Educational webinar will consider model-based technologies and the approaches being used today in industry. ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 11 April 2017—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, “Simulation-Driven Systems Development: Challenges and Opportunities.” The webinar will take place on Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. (EDT) and will last for one hour. With the rapid advances in digital technology, the complexity of products is increasing exponentially due to “mass customized” product variants with high levels of software and electronics content. Game-changing new product lifecycle management (PLM) enabling technologies, such as additive manufacturing (3D printing), the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, and “design-to-purpose” materials, will require new approaches to product development, manufacturing, and sustainment in operations. As such, there is a need to engage and collaborate across diverse engineering and other business domains to develop better “systems-oriented” solutions and conduct a much
