Welcome

Since 2003, PLM International Conference (PLM IC) brings together researchers, developers, and users of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), an integrated business approach to the collaborative creation, management and dissemination of engineering data throughout the extended enterprises that create, manufacture and operate engineered products and systems.

The conference aims at involving all stakeholders of the wide concept of PLM, hoping to shape the future of this new field and advance the science and practice of enterprise development. Since its beginning, PLM IC is the official conference of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Product Lifecycle Management (IJPLM, www.inderscience.com/ijplm). Since 2009, PLM IC is the official conference of the IFIP Working Group WG 5.1 "Global Product development for the whole lifecycle" (www.ifip-wg51.org).

PLM Conference aims to bring together researchers, developers, and users of PLM so as to share recent developments, shape the future of this field and advance the science and practice of enterprise systems development. PLM14 will be hosted by Keio University (Japan), on July 7-9 2014. For details about PLM14, please visit the dedicated website: www.procomu.jp/plm14.
