ANN ARBOR, MI, Aug 18, 2018 – CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, “Innovators Need PLM: Why PLM Should be a Bigger Priority than ERP.” The webinar will take place on Thursday, September 13, 2018, at 11:00 a.m. (EDT) and will last for one hour.

Innovation is often regarded as a competitive advantage. If this is the case why is it so hard to get senior management to invest in improving performance in this area through PLM? This webinar will identify common issues within product innovation and describe how a properly implemented PLM solution can address those issues improving a company’s top line and bottom line. Strategies for getting PLM programs approved will be identified and reviewed.

This webinar will help attendees:

  1. Understand how PLM can be used to support innovation.
  2. Understand why PLM needs investment in addition to ERP.
  3. Understand how downstream areas, such as manufacturing and delivery, can benefit from improved management of the critical upstream PLM domains like NPDI, requirements, eBOM, and engineering change efficiency.
  4. Learn how PLM enables innovators to create the intellectual capital consumed by manufacturing.
  5. Understand how PLM can help improve product launches and ensure a quicker time-to-value.

According to Mr. Tom Gill, CIMdata’s Practice Manager for PLM Enterprise Value & Integration and the host for this webinar, “Given today’s rapidly advancing generative design and additive manufacturing technology, a company must understand the impacts that the new workflow will have on their current design processes.”

Mr. Gill has over 25 years of experience in applying computer-based solutions to engineering and manufacturing. Before joining CIMdata he worked as an independent PLM consultant, after spending over 20 years at high-volume manufacturing companies. Mr. Gill has worked on projects in numerous industries, including fabrication & assembly, food & beverage, defense, chemical, and medical devices. He has executed PLM strategy projects, solution evaluation-and-selection projects, deployment planning, and training development for industrial clients.

This webinar will be of interest to executives, directors, and managers responsible for product development and realization, business owners and executives, product planners and managers, product portfolio managers, PLM team leaders, PLM team members, product managers, IT leadership, solution providers, and anyone who wants to learn more about how PLM can improve new product introduction as well as manufacturing and service.
