We had ACE 2015 Europe in Berlin Germany this year, and PLM
enthusiasts from all over Europe came together to discuss PLM strategy, figure
out new approaches and collaborate on best practices. It was a great time and
we had our largest crowd yet in Europe!
Our theme was Rethink PLM and we really put the focus on the
"business of engineering" as opposed to the science of design. We got
good feedback that this was a very different, and positive, emphasis than other
PLM conferences people had attended.
The agenda was jam packed with people sharing their ideas
and insights, new approaches and lessons learned in order to challenge
conventional assumptions about product development, systems engineering, supply
chain collaboration, and manufacturing.
Peter Schroer, CEO and founder of Aras, opened the
conference with his keynote on “The Business of Engineering.” He said that it is time to look at PLM not
only from the technical side but also on the business side.
We then heard from a wide range of companies that are
fundamentally rethinking PLM and reshaping their strategies with Aras including
Airbus, BAE Systems, ECCO, UTC Autronica and others.
I'd like to thank everyone who was able to join us and
contribute to making ACE 2015 Europe a really great experience. And we want to give special thanks to our
Partner sponsors including T-Systems, AESSiS, CycleOp, Focus PLM, IBM, IHS,
ITI, Kisters, Minerva, PROSTEP AG, Softech and XPLM.
