Abstract:  Many business users (often engineers) are very capable folks who are very busy; for a PLM deployment to be successful key processes these SMEs know must be extracted and embedded in the PLM system. 

What are the best approaches to get business users engaged in the PLM definition and deployment? 
What methods have been effective to get time commitments for testing and system validation? 
Should business users have BMIDE access to model business processes themselves or should they work with IT on this? 
If they do it directly, how do you address learning curve challenges with BMIDE? 
How do you handle handoff from the business user to IT for deployment and configuration control?
