PLM Interest Group


Welcome to the PLMIG

The PLM Interest Group has developed the most comprehensive and advanced set of working methodologies for PLM, and provides the only PLM toolsets that can take the PLM Team from initial adoption to corporate implementation.  


Professional PLM Initiative

The PLM industry is starting to take steps toward establishing itself as a profession.  The PLMIG is providing the platform for the Initiative, and you can find the latest information on this site.


PLM Toolsets

PLMIG toolsets do not require the input of external advisors.  These are the instruction books for PLM. You can pick up the tools and use them for yourself.


                          Advanced PLM


At present the PLM industry has no framework or standards of performance for advanced PLM practice.

There is therefore no clear answer to the question:-

"How do we know that we are doing
PLM as well as possible?"

Of course, PLM Managers are always aiming to improve, and PLM vendors are always aiming to prove that improvements have been made.  The problem in the past has been that PLM was regarded as "unquantifiable".  The new PLMIG toolsets provide a structured way of ensuring that the PLM implementation is performing at the highest level.

This in turn creates makes it possible to start to define areas such as "PLM Best Practice" and "PLM Professionalism", so that everyone knows exactly what they should be aiming for.
