Why PLM isn’t as well-known (or loved) as pasta

Why PLM isn’t as well-known (or loved) as pasta

Our founder, Eric Piccuezzu, forwarded a link to me last week from my old friends at Business Advantage in the UK who’ve recently posted a new report. This one details a finding that 88% of the people surveyed by CAD Spaghetti have never heard of PLM.

You won’t be surprised to hear that we believe the reason is because PLM is more a concept than a product in many cases and the term itself is repeatedly redefined by whomever is using it. I think it’s also because people don’t spend time deploying something that requires enormous commitments in advance of delivering real benefit to end-users.

In contrast, Seemage people often talk about how our products deliver on the “promise of PLM”. To us, that’s like being able to pick the sauce for your pasta instead of worrying about how to cook it.

To mix the metaphors beyond all hope, I think that CAD Spaghetti found no “hunger” for PLM because customers don’t want to do the cooking…they want the eating. When you’re really hungry for better product deliverables, you’ll be more satisfied with Seemage than with a plate of uncooked PLM pasta.
