PLM as a Strategic Weapon: An Underlying PlanetPTC Live 2011 Theme - Part 2

In addition, if the company owns an Oracle or SAP ERP, the chief executive officer (CIO) will often push for integration with that vendor’s PLM offering. But where the company is not an Oracle or SAP shop, a best-of-breed PLM option should win. SAP and Oracle beg to differ when it comes to definitions about what “ERP” is in this debate. They rather offer business suites that

Learning Management Suite (LMS)

These are tools for managing, creating, scheduling training or learning in your organization. The terminology varies from vendor to vendor. Learning management systems (LMS) typically help to manage both classroom and on-line learning. They do not normally include content creation or management tools but may in some cases. Some LMSs may manage just classroom or just e-learning rather than both. Some LMSs may also include content authoring and managment and virtual classrooms. Learning content management systems (LCMS) emphasize the management of content for courses/training/learning. In most cases, they include content authoring tools. In some cases, they may also include some of the features of LMSs. Content authoring tools are often provided as part of an LCMS. They may also be stand-alone products. Virtual classrooms (web conferencing tools) normally are separate third party offerings but may be included as part of a suite of tools. Suites of tools include features of at least two or more of the above categories. While some companies offer just LMS or LCMS systems others offer suites of products, which provide all or most of the features of the other tools. Suites combine several capabilities of learning management--usually two or more of the following: learning management, classroom training management, e-learning management, custom content creation, learning content management, learning object repositories, or virtual classrooms.

PLM (Vendors) and Lean Product Development -- Part 2: Dassault Systèmes


Part 1 of this blog post series discussed in general the relationship between product lifecycle management (PLM) and lean product development (LPD), and pointed out that various PLM vendors may have different interpretations of PLM functionality, as well as different levels of support for users’ LPD initiatives. In this and a few future blog posts, I will choose some PLM vendors and talk about the

As one of the first PLM vendors to start talking about LPD, DS has created some interesting content on this topic through its Web site. But I will leave the exploration of that to you and now discuss two of DS’s more recent involvements—which, at first glance, may not seem to some people to be directly relevant to LPD.

Product Lifecycle Management: Expediting Product Innovation


The highly competitive product manufacturing market makes true product lifecycle management (PLM) inevitable. PLM helps companies map product requirements to features, obtain control over product data, preserve product knowledge assets, and enter into the new paradigm of modular product development.

It's also important for design engineers to be able to check in or check out these files on a daily basis during the design cycle. This gives designers more control over the product design, since the centralized storage of product data makes for an information-rich product development process. Furthermore, incorporating a strict approval mechanism enables designers to do things right the first time. Precise CAD data Read More

What Could Be Some New Frontiers for Large CAD/PLM Providers?


My attendance of Siemens’ two-day product lifecycle management (PLM) analyst summit in the late summer of 2011 was like trying to drink from a fire hose.

If There's One Thing CRM Tells Us: Don't Do PLM the Same Way


Product lifecycle management (PLM) doesn't work, but it should. Industry's general approach and attitude to PLM mimics the early days of customer relationship management (CRM) adoption, and lessons from that experience should help when tackling the "ifs" and "hows" of PLM investment.

cad courses dublin  2: Choosing between the CAD and ERP Vendor Both CAD and ERP vendors will attempt to sell you PLM—the middle piece between CAD and ERP—using similar fear, uncertainty, and doubt arguments. ERP vendors will argue that you should choose their PLM because their ERP controls the commercial data, and is also the system that has the largest user population; users who are going to provide the valuable feedback and input to the design process. CAD vendors, on the other hand, will argue that they control the Read More

Where Does PLM Fit in the Extending LMS Formula?


There are two reasons which led me to write this blog. Firstly, I recently had briefings with vendors such as Learn.com and Xyleme that made me realize that the learning management system (LMS) industry is building up more and more connections with other technologies and enterprise applications. Secondly, a recent article (see Trends in LMS by Don McIntosh) explains how LMS is evolving with Web 2

The existing 3D CAD assets have the potential to be used for learning purposes, but sophisticated CAD systems are usually expensive thus not available for a wide range of audiences. Actually, for most learning purposes, a learner only needs a very small fraction of what today’s 3D CAD systems offer. Based on 3D models, 3D learning content needs to be generated and communicated conveniently and inexpensively, and I see 3DVIA as a good candidate for this task. Certainly, this is not the only thing Read More

Best-of-Breed Versus Complete CAD-PLM Suites: The Debate Rages On


The PLM world is currently witness to fervent debate on the most appropriate type of PLM/CAD software. Best-of-breed solutions offer the needed capabilities and hence integrate the necessary software modules as per the customer’s needs, whereas all-in-one CAD/PLM suites attempt a “one size fits all” approach. In his report, TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic provides his view on the intricacies of these two approaches.

PLM: A New World of (More) Collaboration and Innovation


It used to be the case that PLM was perceived as being principally about CAD tools and 3D drawings and complex technical specs that no one really understood except the geekiest of PLM geeks. This perception was justified, to an extent. After all, PLM and CAD tools can be complicated, engineers and designers tend to operate in highly specialized environments, and there's a common misconception

An Introduction to E-learning and Learning Management Systems (LMS)


Not so long ago (or, back in the early ’90s, when I was a first-year college student) there were two ways to get a post-secondary education: by attending classes at a university or college with hundreds of other coffee-stoked students, or by signing up for what used to be called “distance” learning (or even before that, “by correspondence,” as though courses consisted of a series of letters
