The Many Faces of PLM Part One: Event Summary


Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software solutions, like many of the application suites that have come before it, are a collection of different offerings that serve a common theme and contribute to overlapping value propositions. Like previous application suites, there is strategic value in approaching PLM as a set of inter-related requirements as opposed to just a collection of function-specific requirements. This is a report on the observations from the 2003 Product Development Manager’s Association (PDMA) Conference.

ugs plm visvue  PLM (now known as UGS ), PTC and MatrixOne also exhibited at the show, displaying their approach to delivering the value of PLM. The diversity of the vendors and their application offerings further highlights the need for manufacturers to understand PLM as a whole, determine the areas that will provide the most value for their business, and then map out a strategy that includes incremental steps to achieve that value. For more information on this approach, see The PLM Program An Incremental Approach to Read More

Bentley Extends Commitment to Siemens PLM Software


The 3D computed-aided design (CAD) world continues to be co-opetitive. Many of the situations where fierce competitors end up using each other’s tools in their competing products are circumstantial, i.e., those products were using tools supplied by a software company before it was acquired by a competitor. For example, the Parasolid 3D geometric modeling kernel was developed

ugs plm visvue  Siemens acquired Parasolid via UGS. In any case, in support of its MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3) software products, Bentley Systems, Incorporated, will now add Parasolid Bodyshop, and D-Cubed Profile Geometry Manager (PGM), and expand the deployment of the JT Data Format. Bentley expressed its interest in the ability of Bodyshop to “heal” (i.e., repair, optimize, and validate) imperfect 3D geometry imported from third-party CAD systems. For its part, D-Cubed is a geometry constraint solver and a Read More

The Different Evolutionary Stages of ERP and PLM


The product development life cycle - innovate, conceptualize, plan, design, procure, produce, deliver, service, and retire - naturally includes multiple people, operating in multiple departments, and typically from multiple companies, each with locations in multiple countries around the world. Solving inherent difficulties that result from managing this complexity are the raison d’être for PLM solutions.

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.
