The presentation will explain the challenges and opportunities of implementing an end-to-end configuration management solution. ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 31 August 2017—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces that its President, Peter Bilello, will make a presentation at Configit’s CLM Summit entitled “Configuration Management — An Extended Enterprise Discipline.” The CLM Summit will take place at the Hilton Cocoa Beach Ocean Front on October 23-25. Historically, many companies have considered configuration management to be a narrowly focused discipline—a discipline that primarily focused on data management during product development and release to manufacturing. However, to fully enable the strategic business approach that product lifecycle management requires, companies must look at solutions that enable end-to-end configuration management capabilities, not only from a product development perspective, but also from a business perspective. In this presentation, Mr. Bilello will discuss the challenges and opportunities of implementing an end-to-end configuration management solution

Educational webinar will show how the implementation of DfAM processes can help evolve a new design/manufacturing strategy. ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 8 August 2017—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, “Design for Additive Manufacturing—reinventing how we design everything we make.” The webinar will take place on Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. (EDT) and will last for one hour. Historically, we have assumed that a product must be broken down into individual components, which are assembled and then put together to become a final product. Whether it’s a plane, smart phone, medical device, building, or Egyptian pyramid, the design is approached in the same way. Today, Additive Manufacturing (AM) machines can produce end-use quality production parts in materials such as thermoplastics, polyamides, polystyrenes, composites, and metals; even combinations of materials in a single part. Modern software tools such as Generative Design and

In this free educational webinar participants will learn about the state of the art for generative design tools and the processes they enable. ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 1 August 2017—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, “Generative Design: The Changing Nature of Product Development.” The webinar will take place on September 7, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. (EDT). Generative Design (GD) is a term for a class of tools that create or modify design geometry based on non-geometric requirements or constraints on product performance. GD includes not only Topology Optimization (TopOpt), but also rules-driven parametric CAD and a host of other tools for optimizing cost, weight, stiffness, strength, natural frequency, and other performance criteria. This way to generate geometry (and other design attributes) is extremely important, as it takes us out of the current paradigm of creating, and then evaluating, CAD. Rather than,
