CIMdata, Inc., the leading global Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) management consulting and research firm announces that John Knight-Gregson, i-PLM Program Lead at Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), will make a keynote presentation at PLM Road Map™ 2012. The keynote lineup also includes presentations by automotive expert Dr. David E. Cole, Georgia Institute of Technology’s Professor Dimitri Mavris, Dana’s Frank Popielas, EADS’ Tristan Gegaden, CAD Software Entrepreneur Jon Hirschtick, and Ford’s Mark Johnson. PLM Road Map 2012 will take place at the Inn at St. John’s on October 2nd and 3rd.

PLM is a very popular concept, vision, or strategy that is designed to deliver improved business capabilities and achieve competitive advantage. Many have embarked on the PLM journey deploying a range of solutions to eliminate waste, reduce time to market, accelerate new product creation, improve collaboration, and open innovation, but few have actually achieved the benefits of “true PLM.”

Following its acquisition by Tata Motors and the transition from Ford Motor Company (“Clone and Go” project), JLR inherited inefficient processes and a complex legacy application landscape. Since then, JLR has embarked on a PLM transformation journey to reconnect management to the product by making data more accessible and better related to the virtual product. The i-PLM program was conceived in 2008 as a business transformation program to implement a true PLM solution aimed at creating a “single source of truth.” Its outcome will enable business information to be made widely available and reusable with data “created once and used many times.” In his keynote presentation,“PLM Transformation: Setting Up the Program Framework,” John Knight-Gregson will take PLM Road Map attendees through JLR’s PLM transformation story, which has been supported by Tata Technologies. He will describe the key success factors, including a robust program management methodology associated with stakeholder governance to support organizational and cultural changes that are required to transform the business and realize the full business benefits of the new PLM processes.

PLM Road Map 2012 is the must-attend event for industry executives and PLM practitioners globally—providing independent education and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and relationships critical to the industry germinate and take root. It is a strategic conference focused on how companies are successfully employing PLM strategies and enabling solutions to meet challenging product development, manufacturing, and deployment issues. PLM Road Map 2012 is a two-day event that will challenge attendees to shift their current thinking to a new level in a series of presentations focusing on the global transformation of product development and innovation processes. PLM Road Map 2012 is the leading international event that helps companies leverage cross-disciplinary and cross-industry knowledge and feedback to smooth and speed their PLM journeys.
