The Challenge in Preparing Students for Industry 4.0 ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 8 May 2017—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic consulting and research firm released a new whitepaper focused on research recently conducted on PLM education from high school through university. Industrial companies are experiencing a very serious gap in new employees’ understanding of PLM and their lack of practical experience using a multitude of concepts that exist in the PLM realm. What companies need isn’t always what is being provided by educational institutions. This is not just an issue at the university level, education for tomorrow’s work environment must start much earlier in the education pipeline. Research for this whitepaper was sponsored by Siemens PLM Software that provides a suite of PLM education support programs. The paper presents CIMdata’s perspective on PLM education today, including results from a survey of PLM educators from around the world. The results and analysis point out
