PLM Road Map™ & PDT

A CIMdata-Eurostep event partnership

Eurostep, now a BAE Systems company, delivers software and services for product lifecycle management, focusing on exchanging and sharing data within and between enterprises. Services range from pre-studies to the implementation and support of systems. Eurostep has subsidiaries in Sweden, the UK, France, Finland, Germany, and the US and has blue-chip customers in various industries, including automotive, aerospace, defence, energy, high tech, and building & construction.

As one of its core activities, Eurostep delivers training in product data management and related standards such as STEP and PLCS. Eurostep also hosts seminars and conferences.

Eurostep invests in creating an open climate between software vendors, the industry and academia.

Standards like STEP are very much driven by the user communities who are concerned with avoiding vendor unique data formats and vendor proprietary solutions. PDT Europe will continue to provide an opportunity for the business-, industrial- and scientific communities to report, monitor, and discuss the progress made within the PDT, PDM, PLM and CM methodologies and their industrial/commercial applications.
