CIMdata Announces 2023 Public Product Life Cycle Management Certificate Program

Educational offerings to be presented in March

Published: Wednesday, January 11, 2023 - 12:58

(CIMdata Inc.: Ann Arbor, MI) -- CIMdata Inc., a leading global PLM strategic consulting and research firm, announced its first Product Life Cycle Management (PLM) Certificate program of 2023 will take place in Ann Arbor, Michigan, March 13–17.

This unique program prepares PLM professionals to address the challenges commonly faced in PLM strategy development and implementation. The assessment-based program includes a personalized classroom experience, individual and team-based exercises, and evaluations of achievement. CIMdata experts with years of hands-on experience lead the program. Successful completion of the program and assessments leads to a certificate of PLM leadership.

Drawing on CIMdata’s 40 years of experience guiding industrial companies in successfully defining and implementing best-in-class PLM strategies and tactics, the program is appropriate for those embarking on a PLM journey and those already implementing PLM.

According to CIMdata’s marketing director, Cheryl Peck, “During the Covid-19 pandemic, CIMdata was able to pivot this in-person education program to a virtual experience, which the PLM community received well. We can now hold our programs in person, ensuring that networking between our faculty and attendees is actualized.”

Programs take place throughout the year, with the next in Amsterdam (June 19–23). Other dates and locations include Boston (Oct. 2–5) and Santa Clara, California (Dec. 4–8).

The program is available in three- or five-day configurations. CIMdata’s one-day Executive Short Course and two-day PLM Fundamentals for Solution Providers Short Course will also be offered.
