)-- CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, “Using Agile Methods to Speed Time to Value in a PLM Deployment.” The webinar will take place on July 14, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. EDT and will share CIMdata’s observations of clients using an Agile methodology for PLM deployment achieving benefits in line with those experienced by commercial software developers. Benefits include faster time to value, a higher quality solution, and improved user satisfaction.
According to the webinar host, CIMdata’s Practice Manager for PLM Enterprise Value & Integration, Tom Gill, “Using Agile for PLM deployment does not eliminate the need for proper planning, but rather it enables the plan to be updated to better meet company needs as knowledge about PLM improves.”
Tom Gill has over 25 years of experience applying computer-based solutions to engineering and manufacturing. Before joining CIMdata he worked as an independent PLM consultant, after spending over 20 years at high-volume manufacturing companies. He has worked on projects in numerous industries, including fabrication & assembly, food & beverage, defense, chemical, and medical devices and has executed PLM strategy projects, solution evaluation and selection projects, deployment planning, and training development for industrial clients.
The webinar will be an hour long and those attending will learn: how Agile software methodology can be successfully applied to a PLM deployment; more about the benefits the Agile methodology offers over legacy methodologies such as waterfall; and how Agile can improve quality, time to value, and lower the cost of a PLM deployment.
The webinar will be useful to PLM sponsors, PLM program managers and directors, PLM product owners, engineering software application developers, PLM support teams, IT Operations, and anyone who wants to learn more about Agile methods.
During the webinar attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed.
