Gerard Litjens, Director European Operations at CIMdata, presents during the 3D Design & Engineering Conference: “Product Lifecycle Management and 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing”.
PLM is a business strategy that focuses on management of the virtual product, which includes all information and processes that define the physical product. That includes all mechanical, electrical, electronics, and software information. So far mainly for products that are manufactured in a subtractive manufacturing fashion. How does additive manufacturing fit PLM? What does it take to fit? Questions that deserve clear answers.
