Training Seminars Vital to PLM Success
April 17, 2012
Across all industries product lifecycle management as a solution is being utilized. Although some industries, particularly those with a heavy emphasis on engineering design, are veterans at PLM, the newest industries to turn to PLM to streamline processes and eliminate wastes still are not completely convinced. PLM within the medical community is thriving thanks in large part to the outpouring of support and training from the PLM community. A recent press release on MarketWatch, “Omnify Software and CADD Edge Launch Product Lifecycle Management Seminar Series,” demonstrates how one PLM provider is reaching out to medical data professionals.
The article explains of a February 7, 2012 seminar as saying,
“…Omnify Software and CADD Edge kicked off their PLM seminar series in Andover, MA featuring Barry Mendell, Engineering Services Manager for Mevion Medical, as a keynote speaker. With over 15 years of experience using various Product Lifecycle Management products, Mr. Mendell touted the benefits PLM can deliver to manufacturers of all sizes by providing a centralized and controlled location to manage all product data and documentation across the enterprise…As a medical device manufacturer, PLM is integral to Mevion’s product development operations to ensure they are delivering high quality products with processes that adhere to stringent FDA and ISO compliance guidelines.”
Training is most definitely the key to PLM solutions being optimized within companies. Without everyone on board, one hundred percent, with a clear understanding of their role as well as the entire ‘big picture’ behind the PLM solution endeavors will be for naught. Omnify is not the only PLM provider focused on providing training. Inforbix, a leader in the field, works hard with their clients to provide smart data management solutions while simultaneously training employees to better find, share and reuse data.
