ANN ARBOR, MI, USA, Oct 14, 2021 – CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces that the PLM Certificate Standard Program will be offered this coming December as part of the firm’s Virtual-Live PLM Certificate Program offerings.
Early in 2020, CIMdata added the virtual-live PLM Certificate Core Program to its PLM Leadership curriculum. This move provided a way for the broader PLM community to experience CIMdata’s world-class PLM education opportunities without leaving the office or plant. That need still exists; however, many PLM Professionals seek to enhance their PLM education and have asked CIMdata to offer its de facto industry standard PLM Certificate Standard Program as a virtual-live program.
CIMdata will offer the PLM Certificate Standard Program through its virtual-live platform from December 6-16. The program, which leads to a Standard Certificate of PLM Leadership, will take place in a series of 4-hour sessions over nine consecutive business days. Topics covered in this program include:
- PLM Basics (three self-paced online modules taken before the virtual-live session)
- PLM Key Concepts & Learnings
- PLM Benefits & Potential Value
- PLM Strategy & Solution Definition
- PLM Solution Evaluation & Selection
- PLM Implementation, Monitoring & Continuous Improvement
- PLM Process Development & Testing
- Integrating PLM within the Enterprise
- Expanding PLM Across the Value Chain
- Configuration Management’s Role in PLM
CIMdata will also offer the PLM Certificate Core Program at this time. Furthermore, existing graduates of the Core Program will have the opportunity to convert their Core Certificate of PLM Leadership to a Standard Certificate of PLM Leadership by participating in the last four days of the Standard Program.
Commenting on the decision to offer the PLM Certificate Standard Program virtually, CIMdata’s president and CEO, Peter Bilello, said, “CIMdata’s expansion of our education and training offerings to a virtual-live platform has been extremely successful; demand has been very high.” Mr. Bilello added, “CIMdata has been working with the PLM industry for close to 40 years. Our consulting services and research expertise are known and respected around the world for their best practice-based content. CIMdata’s educational offerings draw on this vast knowledge and experience. As part of our consulting business, we regularly hear about the need to expand our virtual PLM education offering to an industry “standard” level. Offering the PLM Certificate Standard Program virtually this December allows us to respond to what we hear in the industry in a timely fashion.”
