PLM World® is an independent, not-for-profit organization. Our mission is to be the Voice of the User in providing an open forum for the exchange of ideas within the Siemens Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Software product environment. Membership is open to users of NX, Solid Edge, Teamcenter, and Tecnomatix software.
PLM World® follows a strategic plan focusing on communication in both user-to-user as well as user-to-Siemens PLM Software channels. For user-to-user interaction, the organization offers an active organization that communicates at annual conferences, in regional users groups as well as on-line through the PLM World web site.
Through networking, these users share best practices and technical techniques for implementing and using the software more effectively. For user-to-Siemens PLM Software interaction, we helped Siemens create the Customer Involvement Process, which allows the user community to play a key role in the future development of Siemens PLM Software products. Through Enhancement Request voting and discussion during special sessions at annual conferences, users directly affect product direction. In addition, a new program has been designed to increase the value of the Voice of the User. PLM World® will participate in Siemens PLM Software’s Early Involvement Process to outline members’ technical requirements in the next software release.
The Advisory structure of PLM World® is comprised of the Board of Directors as well as Special Interest Group (SIG) chairpersons. Chosen from our member population, these individuals volunteer their time to ensure the success of the organization’s mission.
