The PLM Interest Group announces the release of the first ever PLM Governance Standard that can be applied by companies of all sizes as a methodology for integrating board-level and operational PLM.
The Standard has been developed by the 2011 workshop series in Gothenburg, Munich, Milan and London, and is a distillation of best-practice PLM management and oversight at all levels of a company. It gives the CEO and VPs clear visibility of PLM throughout the enterprise, and provides the PLM Team with a natural mechanism for meeting the Board's requirements.
The Standard does not rely on restrictive rules, and does not require extensive documentation of procedures. Care has been taken to keep it simple, lightweight and accurate.
This is a landmark for the PLM industry because, although there are various existing standards that impact on the PLM space, this is the first standard that applies purely to PLM. It is intended to be followed in the same way as other international standards, and may lead to more structure and cohesion within the PLM industry as future standards are developed to support it.
The PLM Governance Standard is published this week as the Q4 2011 issue of the PLM Journal.
The PLM Interest Group is a global Group which brings together its members to work proactively to solve their PLM problems. It is developing a new generation of applied PLM standards including the PLM Best Practice Library and the Path to PLM; and has previously run workshops that have produced the PLM Benchmarking Handbook; the PLM-SCM Guidebook; and the PLM Maturity Reference Manual.
