Abstract
 
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) spread quickly throughout industry world-wide after its emergence at the beginning of the 21st Century. Twenty years later, an industrial company expects new employees to be knowledgeable about PLM, and to work immediately in its PLM environment. However, few PLM courses have been offered by academia, meaning that companies have been forced to develop and provide their own PLM education for new hires. It also means that it has been difficult for students to learn about PLM, either at undergraduate or graduate level. In recent years two such courses were developed and taught, one in USA and the other one in Europe. Their authors joined forces to create a complete course package that could be taught throughout the world with the support of Siemens Digital Industries Software. This paper describes the project and the PLM course that is now available for use in academic organisations throughout the world.
 
This webinar will initially introduce the historic context of PLM and its growth as a discipline over the last decades. The authors will then introduce the new “Business Value of PLM” course. This is a business-oriented course about PLM. It’s a 3 Credit (US) course. In other words, a typical one-semester course requiring about 145 hours of effort from a student of an academic organisation such as a University, College, or School. The content of the 15-week course will be discussed, along with information about how the course is being taught and opportunities for further dissemination of the course material.
