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.
