1. Why plmbook.com?
The idea to write a book came to me first time in 2014. The original plan was to capture most popular Beyond PLM articles and publish it as a book using Amazon or similar self-publishing service.
As much as I loved the idea, it didn’t work well. First draft was too large (~400 pages). Articles contained a lot of irrelevant information from original blog posts. So, I decided to stop and rethink it.
The second version was better. Below is an outline of the my vision of PLM book as I created it back in 2015:
Casual read about main PLM topics, including historical retrospective, analysis of modern technological trends, together with vision of the future of manufacturing, also raising some controversy and shaing open questions.
Although it felt very compelling, the PLM book was too large to publish. Who wants to read 400 pages about Product Lifecycle Management? Nobody… At the same time, I’ve seen the need to share more information about PLM and related technologies in a more systematic and organized way.
So, I decided to turn it into website & blog at the same time.
