PLM Interest Group


Professional PLM

The PLMIG is the driving force behind the Professional PLM Initiative, supporting the Steering Group and providing the deliverables for the Foundation Stage.


Class A PLM

Excellence in PLM has always been a vague and distant concept.  The PLMIG now has a programme that can achieve Class A PLM and demonstrate advanced performance.


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.

                      Use and Benefits



Get what you pay for when you buy and implement PLM, by creating a partnership with the vendor or supplier.

PLM Delivery Handbook




The PLM Delivery Handbook enables users and their suppliers (vendors, systems integrators or consultancies) to work together to define target benefits for PLM adoption, in a process that all participants can commit to.

This brings in collaboration and commitment from the vendor and reinforces the drive to achieve targets.

The Handbook adds a collaborative 'front end' to the Project Justification methodology, and enables the user and vendor to participate not only in the ideation and discovery, but also in the detailed calculation process.

The fact that both user and vendor have calculated the target benefits, and feel confident to endorse them in writing, is a major boost to gaining approval.
