CIMdata 2013 PLM Market and Industry Forum successfully held

Beijing-2013 PLM Market and Industry Forum (China) was successfully closed on April 19 which e-works held in alliance with CIMdata.Focusing on PLM market development and PLM technologies and implementations, CIMdata PLM Market and Industry Forum is a leading PLM event around the world.

More than 40 mainstream vendors home and abroad, researchers, and experts gathered in the forum including vendors from Siemens PLM, PTC, Dassault System, SolidWorks, LMS, MSC.Software, ANSYS, CAXA, Shenzhou Software, THsoft InfoTech, Kingdee, GstarCAD, ZWSOFT, Sysware, CIMATRON, Tianyu Soft; Beijing Innovation Tianhe Software, UFC, RP Technology, and RuiheSoft. The focused point on the forum was the status and development trend in global and China PLM market.

2013 PLM Market and Industry Forum

In the morning session, Peter Bilello, President of CIMdata analyzed the state of PLM in 2012. He pointed out that, "The global economy still not completely recovered, but PLM investments continued to increase. The global PLM market in 2012 exceeded CIMdata forcast. According to CIMdata statistics, global mainstream PLM market up to 12.1% to 21 billion US dollars and comprehensive PLM up to 11.3% to 33.3 billion US dollars". cPDm sector also had strong growth in 2012. Tool sector grows with simulation & analysis up higher than overall tools. EDA market growth slowed in 2012.

In the afternoon session, Peter shared a topic in cross-Disciplinary collaboration in systems engineering. He said that collaborative systems engineering partnerships are built on 3 things that form the foundation for building collaborative SE environments, namely trust, knowledge-sharing, and dedicated assets. All of these impact culture. On another topic of democratizing simulation for improved decision making, Peter said that democratizing simulation should be simple and easy to use and many cases show that democratizing simulation is not simply automate experts' process.

Dr. Pei Huang, the founder and CEO of e-works interpreted the 2013 China PLM Report. According to e-works Research, China mainstream PLM market realized overall fast growth in 2012 and the market capacity achieved 749.2million US dollars. The comprehensive PLM market capacity achieved 1.16billion US dollars. Generally speaking, the mainstream PLM market growth is lower than the 22.43% in 2011 but is higher than 13.9% forecasted in the last year report.

Stan shared several important global PLM development trend according to their research:

Firstly, the era of big data is coming and PLM need to use it in making better decision fast.

Secondly, mobile applications in PLM have a good start but it still has a long way to go. In the future, seamless integration with PLM applications and enterprise data on mobile devices will bring significant benefits.

Thirdly, as a longstanding practice, system engineering will continue to arouse wide attention. System engineering focused on customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle, documenting requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and system validation while considering the complete problem.
