CIMdata Launches Website for Aerospace & Defense PLM Action Group
ANN ARBOR, MI, USA, Nov 30, 2017 – CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces the creation of a new website to promote the work being undertaken by the Aerospace & Defense PLM Action Group.
The Aerospace & Defense PLM Action Group (A&D PAG) is an association of aerospace & defense companies that functions as an advocacy group to sponsor research and set the direction for the industry on PLM-related topics such as; obsolescence management, product lifecycle integration, and global collaboration. Since its founding in February 2014, by four leading airframe OEMs, the group’s membership has expanded to 10, including several leading aircraft engine providers. As an outcome of the group’s sponsored research and jointly staffed projects, the members have determined to communicate and promote within the PLM industrial user community the perspectives, objectives, and requirements documented in their direction statements and position papers.
James Roche, CIMdata’s Director for Aerospace & Defense stated, “After three years of progress the A&D PAG members thought it was time to share their work in the public domain. This move is aligned with the group’s mission to promote consensus within the industry on PLM-related topics.”
The new website offers visitors information about the members of the A&D PAG, the work they are undertaking, and includes access to direction statements, position papers, and other publications produced by the group.
