Having Fun with PLM411 (recapping first three videos)


Watch some funny videos about PLM and then stay for some insights and education on how PLM can help manufacturers accelerate and improve product development. Our first three videos make fun of the scourge of Change Management Paralysis, introduce the “innovative” Recipe Manager 2020, and rip on Big Software. All of these carry an important message about the issues manufacturers face, but more importantly offer each a bit of a lighthearted break from the monotony of the work day.

They also share interviews with a leading industry analyst, a PLM software executive, and a company very effectively using PLM. The episodes dig into Who Should Use PLM, How PLM Helps, and a success story at Oyo Sportstoys.

  1. Jim,
    These are very funny – mostly because they are so poignantly accurate!

    I am frankly astonished that we are still talking about change management and collaboration (sharing & markup) as significant hurdles when these are the key value propositions offered by modern PLM.

    And Episode 3 is completely relevant in my new industry ERP, as IT leaders are beginning to understand that it doesn’t have to be that way with a modern cloud platform.

    Keep em coming!

    • Thank you Stu,
      I guess it’s the same as pro sports teams. As good as you get you have to stress the fundamentals. I’m not surprised you like the “Big Software” gag. 😉
