PLM complex data and distributed information

PLM complex data and distributed information

Business environment is changing fast these days. For years, enterprise and manufacturing were very slow moving segments. Long production programs, dependencies on costly manufacturing shops, equipment and tools, slow decision process. All these factors together made manufacturing very conservative domain for technological disruption. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) programs took years…

IoT and PLM have common problem – data interoperability

IoT and PLM have common problem – data interoperability

One of the heavily debated topics in CAD/PLM industry is data interoperability. I remember discussion about data interoperability and standards 10-15 years ago. Even vendors made some progress in establishing of independent data formats, the problem is still here. At the same time, I’m convinced that successful interoperability will play…
