How Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) drives world class performance

Don't miss the opportunity to attend this free one day seminar presented by experienced technical specialists from Intrinsys Ltd, PLMCC, Dassault Systèmes and the CPUT who will provide you with a valuable insight into the impact the latest PLM technologies is having in industry and how businesses can benefit from product innovation, reduced time to market and improved bottom line performance.

PLM and the innovative use of 3D technology are driving critical improvements in business. Dassault Systèmes, 'The 3D Experience Company,' is leading the market with its portfolio of technologies and its application within key market sectors. For some time now, we have benefited from the application of 3D technology to help engineer products. More recently PLM has helped meet the needs of businesses through live collaborative working and secure information sharing. Furthermore the application of 3D visualisation has helped drive the requirement for 3D life like experience to investigate the limits of a product life cycle that exists in a virtual environment long before it is released as manufactured product.

This seminar will review the opportunities for businesses to deploy these PLM systems as an innovation tool to improve the performance of their products, to create strong collaborative links with partners and customers and to exploit the knowledge they have in their business.
