Presenting: Focus Group: IoT, Impact and Potentials for Advanced PLM - 9 Mar 2016, 02:45

How can you utilize your existing PLM platform to gain the business value brought about by IoT? IoT, together with a closed-loop PLM approach, allows better understanding of your customer and eventually improved product designs based on the data collected by IoT products.

However, designing smart, connected products is a more than just mechatronic design. It requires the engineering of a system that aligns a business model with hardware, software and the information logistics between the equipment and the services offered. Your product architecture must support your business model–on a very detailed level.

How can advanced PLM support to master this additional complexity? Will IoT change the way we look at PLM?

In this session we will exchange experience and thoughts about opportunities, but also dangers of IoT and its impact on PLM.
