Workshop @ IIT Bombay, April 9, 2004

    Workshop at IIT Bombay on Friday April 9, 2004 Product Lifecycle Management

Increasing product complexity, rapid innovation cycles, globalization and digitization has

    driven the evolution of Product Lifecycle Management. In this, multiple issues related to

    a product starting from concept and detailed design to manufacturing and service are handled by different members of the team, irrespective of time and distance barriers

    between them, using computer-aided technologies and digital communication networks.

A PLM system includes software for computer aided design, engineering, manufacture,

    product data management, concurrent engineering and online collaboration. Product

    development can be made more systematic and comprehensive, leading to continuous

    improvement in productivity, quality and economy. In a highly competitive global

    manufacturing scenario, this is beneficial to all firms in a supply chain.

The word PLM is however, being used in different contexts by different people including

    consultants, software vendors and HRD managers, leading to confusion and delayed

    acceptance in the industry. The purpose of this programme is to provide an overview of

    PLM, highlight various DFX issues (X= ergonomics, manufacturability, service, etc.), and

    present its applications in industry, supported by information about relevant software

    tools. It is meant for practicing engineers, teachers and students.

    Organisers The workshop is jointly organized by the Continuing Education Programme

    of IIT Bombay and National Design and Research Forum of the Institution

    of Engineers (India) with support from Parametric Technology Corporation.

Material Participants will receive lecture notes, additional reading material and a

    CD with presentation slides.
