PLM Certificate Program

CIMdata’s PLM Certificate Program is intended to ensure that the individuals that participate in a PLM program all have the same level of PLM understanding. The program is delivered through a series of education and training sessions. Comprised of a series of 3.5-hour and 7-hour seminars, it is delivered through a series of lectures, case studies, exercises, and tests.

CIMdata’s PLM Certificate Program is comprised of 9 core courses that can be given over a five-day period or can be delivered in half-day or full-day segments configured for a specific company’s requirements. Please note that CIMdata also offers a set of advanced courses for those companies that need to educate their PLM program participants in other important PLM related topics.

CIMdata Online Polls

CIMdata is now featuring online polls with real time reporting on our web site at http://www.cimdata.com/polls/polls.html. Each week the results of the previous poll will be included in the CIMdata PLM Industry Summary to help you stay on top of trends in the PLM industry.

Take a moment to visit the site and vote on our current poll.

The results for the last opinion poll are:

The results of this poll are rather disappointing given the importance of product cost to competitive marketing. The poll shows that very few companies are actually employing Design to Cost techniques during product development. However, among companies with whom CIMdata consults, lowering product cost remains a major competitive marketing strategy. One that is given plenty of emphasis by business planners, but apparently is not actually taken very seriously by product development organizations.

NOTE: The results of these polls are anecdotal, not scientific.
