Save the Date - March 24, 2020!

The topic of PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) has evolved over the last three decades from simple digital 2D drawing management to new solutions supporting more and more engineering artifacts across the complete Product Lifecycle. This free half-day event is intended to inform the attendees about modern implementations for engineering collaboration across the Product Lifecycle.

Different PLM vendors will present their vision for next-generation PLM systems, which seamlessly integrate in enterprise IT environments to enable cross-tool and cross-lifecycle traceability as well as data availability through data-integration and data-exchange interfaces.

Business Processes Execution across enterprise IT platforms, like PLM or ERP systems, is dependent on seamless connectivity in a federated IT environment. The ongoing integration of expert systems will get even more important in future.

To close the session, a panel will discuss the coverage and lack of existing standards for PLM-interoperability.
