PLM Market & Industry Forums

CIMdata’s 2014 PLM Market & Industry Forum:
“Moving Toward a Circular Economy: New Challenges Offer New Opportunities”

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) has emerged as a strategy to support product and process development, enabled by software technology and services. Ideally, companies manage products from concept to retirement as part of their PLM strategy. Aiming to reduce the environmental impact of products in both production and in their use, sustainability has become a common rallying cry for manufacturers.

Great strides have been made in design for the disassembly, recycling, and reuse of materials and PLM strategies and enabling solutions have played a significant role in the successes to date.

But what if we could have zero impact, what if everything we took out of the ground, or created, could be infinitely reused and repurposed? Let's find out more.
