Morning Session

9:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.          Registration and Tea/Coffee

9:30 a.m. – 9:45 a.m.             Welcome
                  Rahul Deshpande, BrainWave Consulting

Rahul Deshpande will introduce the Forum.

9:45 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.           The State of PLM — Today’s Market & Leading Trends
                  Peter Bilello, President, CIMdata, Inc.

This session will review the current state of the PLM industry with particular emphasis on trends and issues, including augmented intelligence, and other emerging trends and necessities that are critical to PLM software and service providers. CIMdata will present its views on these trends and the impact they have on participants in this increasingly challenging market. In addition, Mr. Bilello will provide an update on how CIMdata is addressing the evolving PLM economy and these trends.

11:15 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.        Networking Break

11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m   2018 Market Analysis Results
                                                Stan Przybylinski, Vice President, CIMdata, Inc.

Recognized for many years as the best source of comprehensive and accurate insights into the evolution and direction of the PLM industry, CIMdata’s annual PLM Global Market Analysis is first revealed at this PLM Market & Industry Forum that will be further detailed and reported in the CIMdata PLM MAR series reports.

1:00 pm – 2:15 p.m.      Lunch

Afternoon Session

2:15 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.             Focus on Augmented Intelligence

Data-driven intelligence can augment human innovation in products and product-service combinations as well as in enterprise solutions that help develop those products. In this session, CIMdata will lead discussions that expand on the Forum theme, including any work by CIMdata’s Knowledge Councils and Action Groups that may help advance these topics.

2:15 p.m. – 2:50 p.m.       Intelligence for Product Lifecycle Innovation

Stan Przybylinski

The competition is on to bring better and cheaper product and product-service combinations to the market faster by leveraging intelligence hidden in enterprise data. In this session, CIMdata will describe how state-of-the-art of artificial intelligence is being applied to leverage PLM-related data and how data flows between its adjacent enterprise systems. The session will also include discussion about the future potential and maturity levels of PLM-related intelligence over the next decade.

2:50 p.m. – 3:25 p.m.       Beyond Generative Design
Peter Bilello

Ideas for Generative Design, including topology optimization, were developed in the 1980s but did not fully take root. The evolution of additive manufacturing has sparked new interest, helping users to produce objects not manufacturable by traditional methods. We are evolving to Generative Engineering (or Human-Assisted Design) by leveraging the astounding improvements in computer and software capability to create an environment that will revolutionize not only product engineering and development, but the entire lifecycle that PLM oversees. This session will provide a vision for how technologies including Generative Design, Simulation & Analysis, Big Data Analytics, Advanced Materials, and Robust Design will converge to an Augmented Intelligence environment that will revolutionize product development over the PLM lifecycle.

3:25 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.       Predictive Maintenance–Benefits of Closing the Product Lifecycle Loop
Stan Przybylinski

Using field data to improve product development and generate high margin aftersales revenue are common PLM program objectives. Leading companies are starting to achieve these objectives and realize the benefits. This session will present research on strategies and technologies that have successfully used field data to improve products, customer relationships, sales, and margins.

4:00 p.m. – 4:15 p.m.                   Networking Break

4:15 p.m. – 5:15 p.m.             Short Takes on Hot Topics

There are a number of enabling technologies that support Industry 4.0 that solution providers and their customers must understand fully to support their successful adoption. These sessions include CIMdata’s initial research on these topics and look for the audience to engage to provide their key insights.

4:15 p.m. – 4:45 p.m.       Getting to Markets of One

                                          Stan Przybylinski

Many companies pursuing digitalization or Industry 4.0 strategies share a common goal: being able to profitably serve markets of one by making their products and processes more configurable. In this session, CIMdata will discuss the importance of advanced variant configuration management capabilities and how PLM market leaders are responding.

4:45 p.m. – 5:15 p.m.       Emerging Trends in Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)

                                          Peter Bilello

The widespread digitalization of discrete product development processes combined with the ever increasing complexity of today’s cyber-physical systems is increasing focus on connecting and managing the digital thread of data and models from the early conceptual systems design to the downstream functions more typically managed within the scope of PLM.  CIMdata will discuss the key trends in MBSE, highlight where real progress is being made, and identify the challenges still to be addressed.

5:15 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.             Closing Comments
                  Peter Bilello and Rahul Deshpande
