The work of the PLMIG over the past 15 years has included industry initiatives, workshops, surveys, white papers, and an extensive array of PLM toolsets.

The very best of this material, as published in the PLM Journal and the 2PLMJ e-zine, has been compiled into the Compendium of PLM Ideas.

With over 500 pages of structured content, this is the largest collection of neutral PLM theory ever assembled in book form.  It is an invaluable reference work for those new to the subject, and for experienced practitioners looking to refresh their thinking.
