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.  


PLM Development

As well as producing the first international standards written specifically for PLM, the PLMIG has led a series of initiatives that are moving the PLM industry towards a more professional status.


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.


                      PLM Governance


The issue of PLM Governance is unlikely to occur to new adopters of PLM.  It is a sign of the maturity of a PLM implementation when the PLM Team can focus on the mechanisms of management and direction, and take steps to improve them.

Every well-established PLM implementation should apply PLM Governance as a discipline to confirm how well the PLM management structure fits the corporate environment.

As each PLM Team learns about the strengths and weaknesses of their approach, comparisons become possible.  Companies can learn from each other about the factors that support PLM, and the methodologies and approaches that are most effective.

The PLMIG has published the first Standard in this area, and provides a framework to establish good PLM Governance across the whole PLM industry.
