Apriso Joins Panel Discussion at PLM Road Map 2011

Session will focus on reducing the complexity of aligning today’s development and production processes by integrating manufacturing operations with engineering design.

Who: Frederick L. Thomas, Industry Director at Apriso, will offer a manufacturing perspective on how to think globally when integrating manufacturing operations with engineering design.

What: The theme for this year’s conference is the escalating complexity of PLM and the challenge of achieving cross-disciplinary integration across multiple functional domains at all levels of detail. The growing use of digital manufacturing processes, whereby physical parts are created directly from 3D CAD files or data, is a topic gaining great interest. The need to accelerate new product introductions by streamlining every point in your manufacturing operations is another. Supporting this effort is the strategy of effectively connecting Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions to the global shop floor via modern, enterprise Manufacturing Execution Systems.

Where: Product Lifecycle Management Road Map™ 2011 conference, to be held at The Inn at St. John’s, 44045 Five Mile Road, Plymouth, Michigan. Mr. Thomas will be part of “The Payoff and Challenges of Mechatronics and Digital Manufacturing” discussion panel. Register for this event by telephone (800) 573-4756 or online. See a detailed agenda here.

When: Panel discussion occurs on Wednesday October 5, 2011 at 11:00AM EDT.
