CIMdata to Host Free Webinar on PLM Solution Evaluation & Selection
ANN ARBOR, MI, USA, Aug 9, 2019 – CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, “PLM Solution Evaluation & Selection.” The webinar will take place on Thursday, September 12, 2019, at 11:00 a.m. (EDT) and will last for one hour.
Many organizations considering a PLM initiative and the selection of a PLM solution know they want to start, yet the ever-changing offerings that are available today make it difficult to know what questions to ask. CIMdata has created a set of detailed guidelines for evaluating the available solutions and selecting one to support a company’s PLM strategy. When properly followed, these guidelines help an organization reduce the time it takes to select the right solution providing a documented and objective justification for that selection.
There is no simple answer to the question on how to best perform a PLM solution evaluation and selection if you do not have practical information to help walk you through the process and provide key insight, which can help management give the green light to proceed. This CIMdata webinar will offer an overview of PLM solution evaluation and selection of best practices.
This webinar will help attendees:
- Gain an understanding of the main steps an organization should take to evaluate PLM solutions.
- Learn how to use a neutral PLM model to define technical requirements.
- Sift through the available offerings while keeping a focus on requirements, allowing the selection of the most appropriate PLM solution.
According to Janie Gurley, CIMdata’s PLM Success Practice Manager, and the host for this webinar, “Taking the bias out of the PLM solution evaluation and selection process and having a proven methodology to follow helps ensure that an appropriate solution is selected; one that meets the needs of the organization. For organizations that are just starting out on their PLM journey or wondering if they have an opportunity to replace their current PLM environment this methodology provides the necessary guidance to make the best decision in a short period of time.”
Ms. Gurley has over 26 years of professional experience in understanding and supporting strategic business execution with broad-based expertise in product development solutions within manufacturing. At CIMdata, Ms. Gurley is responsible for the management and execution of CIMdata’s services delivered to PLM solution providers, including the coordination and execution of CIMdata’s Community and associated solution provider strategic management consulting activities.
This webinar will be useful to anyone involved in or contemplating a strategic PLM initiative, PLM project team members, functional directors, mid-level business managers, program champions & sponsors, business subject matter experts, project leaders, IT professionals, IT managers, PLM software & service providers, and those wanting to learn about how a methodical PLM solution evaluation and selection process can reduce the time it takes to select the right solution for their organization. During the webinar attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed.
