Foundation of the Geneva International PLM Group
by John Stark
The Geneva International PLM Group has now been created on LinkedIn.

The objective of the Group is to enable its members to proactively address together PLM subjects of common interest through two main types of joint activity:

  • event-oriented activities, such as meetings, round tables, workshops, seminars and conferences
  • collaborative projects addressing subjects (such as benchmarking of PLM performance, creation of common definitions of PLM job descriptions, etc.) identified by members

The Group is independent of PLM product and service providers, and focuses on the business, management and organisational issues of Product Lifecycle Management.  

The Group is currently headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland which is about 1 hour's flight from most cities in Europe. The Group has members world-wide, reflecting the global importance of PLM.  

Three weeks after foundation, providing an important basis for its activities, the Group has a core group of members from the major suppliers of PLM applications and services, as well as from universities and government organisations addressing PLM.

In the coming weeks, the Group aims to increase the number of members from manufacturing companies. If you have a PLM role in an organisation that develops, produces or supports products, your membership in the Group would be welcomed. Membership of the Group is free of charge. You can join here on LinkedIn. (If you are not on LinkedIn, please mail the Group, including your name and e-mail address, and the name of your organisation.)
