Aktuellt på ENGINEERING.COM: ”Has PLM Failed? New Realities Put an End to Previous Value Equations”
On the surface, much of the IT, PLM and automation support currently being developed in the product realization area looks both exciting and productive. Digital twins, digital threads, Industrial IoT (IIoT), simulation, e-mobility, product-as-a-service models and more are all things that reshape many of the previously applied ideas in terms of process methodology, software capabilities and business models. Developing in parallel to these have been the socio-economic background dramatics and the environmental climate scenarios, which have created an almost revolutionary new reality.
Everyone realizes that navigating this landscape is anything but easy. However, it is equally clear that creating a map of the way forward is more important than ever, when the opportunities available are by no means fully defined or ready for active action. It is even the case that those who thought PLM was the solution to most things have been supplied with good reasons to rethink.
CIMdata's president & CEO, Peter Bilello, speaks about the backdrop to the upcoming autumn edition of the digital event PLM Road Map & PDT Fall 2021.
“There is a lot to this,” he says. “When industrial companies dig out of the reality created by the latest set of socio-economic disruptions, they often end up realizing that their long-accepted views on product lifecycle management (PLM) appear increasingly inadequate. Complexities, risks and opportunities that have been downplayed or ignored are now being tackled on the factory floor, in the field or in the executive suite and everywhere in between. The result is massive upheaval.”
