Over the past 19 years the PLMIG has run a wide range of initiatives which have established many of the core principles and techniques of PLM.

You can find the tools and methodologies under PLM Improvement.

 

Many PLMIG techniques have raised the horizons of PLM and enable solutions and outcomes that were not previously thought possible.

You can browse these and compare them to your current thinking under Advanced Thought.

 

The PLMIG is leading the Initiative to establish an internationally-recognised Professional Body for the PLM industry.

The Professional PLM programme raises the standard of PLM for companies and practitioners.
