CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM consulting and research firm, announces its 2018 PLM Market & Industry Forum schedule and theme. Approaching their twenty-eighth year, these one-day events will be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA on April 5; Frankfurt, Germany on April 12; Pune, India on April 16; Shanghai, China on April 20; and Tokyo, Japan on April 25.


CIMdata’s PLM Market & Industry Forum is designed exclusively for PLM solution providers, PLM service providers, PLM systems integrators, and PLM channel partners of all sizes. Forum attendees will explore the challenges currently facing the PLM market. Presentations will offer insights into the current economic climate, leading trends, and their effects on the PLM economy. There will be a detailed look at the state and trends of current and future PLM markets, and the eagerly awaited first public release of CIMdata’s 2017 PLM market analysis results.


The theme for 2018 is “Industry 4.0-Its Global Impact & Status.” A concept that started in Germany in 2011, the core design principles of Industry 4.0 are interoperability, information transparency, technical assistance, and decentralized decision making. Some people talk about Industry 4.0 as the convergence of information technology (IT) and operation technology (OT); a bridging of digital and physical, cyber-physical production systems enabled by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). At a practical level, however, companies are looking to employ these technologies and processes to enable mass customization, allowing them to make money while serving markets of one. It is important for members of the PLM economy to leverage this new wave and be part of the solution.


Presentations will include the following topics:

Industry 4.0 – A Regional Update

Manufacturing in the Built World

Design for Additive Manufacturing

Service Lifecycle Management

Big Data/Analytics

Virtual/Augmented Reality

The complete agenda will be announced soon.


Participants should expect to gain a solid understanding of the current and emerging PLM market, of the dynamics impacting it, and of the expectations for its continued evolution. Attendees will also gain further insights into opportunities and approaches they can use to navigate the PLM economy in the year to come.
