This free educational webinar will describe how data and process flows can be organized to support digitalization.
ANN ARBOR, Michigan, USA, 17 December 2019-CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, "PLM and ERP Drive Digitalization." The webinar will take place on Thursday, January 9, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. (EST) and will last for one hour.
In the drive to digitalize a broad-based view is needed. Too often companies look at their issues from the perspective of siloes of information creation and use. This approach creates an environment in which it is difficult to understand what information has to flow from the conception of a product until that product reaches its end of life. A digital thread of lifecycle information that supports digital twins is critical to delivering and supporting today's increasingly complex and customized products. This webinar will present insights into how to organize data and process flows to support digitalization and help organizations increase product success.
Attendees at this webinar will:
- Gain an understanding of how optimizing the roles of PLM and ERP in digitalization can solve real business issues-cost, quality, time-to-market.
- Get a clear view of the roles of ERP and PLM along the product lifecycle-from conception through manufacturing to end of life.
- Understand how PLM and ERP support the concept of Industry 4.0, the digital twin, and the digital thread.
- Be able to explain how these two critical product-supporting initiatives positively impact how well companies deliver products that their customers want.
- Understand the benefits of adopting a formal PLM-ERP strategy that provides the information your organization needs to develop a digitalized, Industry 4.0-enabling process that leads to higher quality and profitability.
- Articulate the value of digitalization throughout a product's life to others.
According to webinar host John MacKrell, "Companies CIMdata has been working with are being challenged to adopt a digital enterprise approach and the technologies and processes that support it. The current state of the art is too often that organizations apply digital methods in islands-especially islands that inherently separate design from manufacturing from in-service support."
Mr. MacKrell has over 40 years of experience in the application of computer-based solutions to engineering and manufacturing, with more than 20 years of those years at CIMdata. He has held senior positions in product management, marketing, research and development, and consulting.
This webinar will be of interest to anyone involved in a digitalization journey, regardless of where they are. Attendees can come from many parts of an organization-PLM is cross functional and feeds ERP, manufacturing, and other downstream processes. People from multiple levels within an organization will find the information pertinent and valuable: managers, product engineers, manufacturing planners, installation and services practitioners, IT, purchasing-anyone impacted by how an organization defines, uses, and communicates product information.
During the webinar attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed.
