ANN ARBOR, MI, USA and STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Jan 27, 2022 – CIMdata and Eurostep are pleased to announce that PLM Road Map & PDT 2022 North America will be an in-person event at the Marriott Hotel in Tysons Corner, Virginia, USA. The theme for the conference is “Digital Transformation and PLM – a call for PLM Professionals to re-define and re-position the benefits and value of PLM.” The event will take place on May 24th and 25th.
PLM Road Map & PDT 2022 will focus on the interests of the PLM Professional. With this in mind, our agenda will offer a mix of reports and case studies from industry experts, covering technologies, processes, and people. PLM Road Map & PDT 2022 will highlight the role of PLM in enabling holistic and sustainable Digital Transformation. Presentations will investigate where PLM has been successful and why. Additionally, we will consider the positioning of PLM within the enterprise.
Agenda topics will seek to answer the following questions:
- How do we improve PLM implementations to better align with shifting expectations?
- What is the best use of PLM to support the design and implementation of agile yet resilient supply chains and, in general, reduce and manage enterprise risk?
- How can PLM support the actionable enterprise, helping management teams to understand, make decisions, and manage the future?
- What is needed for the PLM community to move to an interoperable system for data reuse and openness, eliminating process gaps and business friction?
- How do we include PLM as part of strategic AI and Machine Learning investments?
- What is the role of PLM in a post-COVID-19 world, and how do we reset for it?
According to CIMdata’s President & CEO, Peter Bilello, “After two years of highly successful virtual-live events, it’s time for the PLM Economy to come together again. I can’t think of a better place to do this than at PLM Road Map & PDT—the world’s leading PLM event focused on today’s PLM Professionals that brings all parts of the PLM industry together. Our first in-person conference since November 2019 promises high value and accessibility to PLM professionals from multiple industries across the globe. Our theme focuses on the elements that are vital to enabling a successful PLM strategy—equipping the PLM Professional with insight on how to get the most out of the people, processes, and technologies that enable a successful PLM environment.”
“While the tech sector is very much driven by disruption, it must deliver value to end-users,” says Håkan Kårdén, co-founder and Marketing Director, Eurostep Group. “PLM Road Map and PDT have recently focused on disruption, but it is now time to look at the value delivered. PLM is constantly increasing in scope and footprint, and in 2022 it is time to look at the importance of PLM in enabling Digital Transformation. After our event in November 2019, we had to go digital ourselves. As we all know, people ultimately make things work, and we also know the value of meeting and discussing in person. I am excited to announce PLM Road Map and PDT as an in-person event in 2022 and look forward to meeting you all, those well-known and new faces, all PLM professionals. Let’s move PLM forward based on the theme of Digital Transformation and PLM – a call for PLM Professionals to re-define and re-position the benefits and value of PLM,” ends Mr. Kårdén.
In addition to the event in May, CIMdata and Eurostep will host PLM Road Map & PDT EMEA in late Fall in Gothenburg, Sweden.
