Welcome to the PLMIG
The PLM Interest Group is the leading industry body for PLM. Since its formation in 2004 as a proactive, global working group for PLM practitioners, the PLMIG has run initiatives and workshops in Europe and the USA that have generated a neutral body of PLM subject knowledge and tools.
The PLMIG has developed the first internationally-applicable standards written specifically for PLM, and maintains a library of PLM best practice.
PLM Financial Framework
The current PLMIG initiative is to generate a new Financial Framework for PLM. This is being launched by two parallel workshops in Manchester and Toulouse during June 2013.
PLM has always been seen as a subject that is difficult to quantify in financial terms, and it is time to change this. The PLMIG workshop series will generate a neutral, practical and comprehensive framework to show the costs, benefits and commercial value of applying PLM.
The initiative will continue with more events later in the year, and the combined series will generate a universal methodology for financial management and control of PLM.
Registration for Manchester and Toulouse is now open.
The PLMuERP Handbook has just been released, capturing the results of the 2012 trans-Atlantic workshop series into a new neutral reference work for PLM and ERP integration.
Body of Knowledge
The PLM Interest Group body of knowledge has been generated by a wide range of initiatives. The full scope of PLMIG activity is shown on the main page.
