A Leading Industry Analyst Firm’s Assessment of Modern PLM for Discrete Manufacturing

In the age of the customer, manufacturers need to accelerate their transition from a focus on mass production and economies of scale to a focus on market and customer responsiveness. From over-the-air vehicle software updates to jet engines as a service, smart manufacturing offers the promise of new consumption models, assets, and products, enabled by a digital thread linking design, manufacture, and continual update. Discrete manufacturers must use product lifecycle management (PLM) to boost collaborative innovation, reduce time-to-market for successful products and services, and enable the digital thread. Wherever you are on your PLM journey – whether you are just getting started or taking the next steps — join this webinar to explore recommendations from PLM users and experts about implementation best practices. Guest speaker George Lawrie, Forrester Vice President, and Principal Analyst, will also discuss the criteria and methodology of The Forrester Wave™: Product Lifecycle Management For Discrete Manufacturers, Q1 2021.
