At this year’s LiveWorx, we will be bringing you stories of PLM digital transformation and the digital thread told through our customers’ voices. It’s only fitting that PTC’s one-of-a-kind digital transformation event showcases real-world examples of the innovation built on the backbone of strategic PLM. The companies at the heart of these stories know that it’s impossible to take advantage of emerging technology like augmented reality, digital twin and IoT without a PLM strategy.

Customer-Led PLM Sessions

You’ll hear firsthand from the following companies leading the way:

  • BMW: Hear BMW’s chief architects walk you down BMW’s path to mass customization using PTC to automate, create plant-specific BOMs, and move data from engineering to manufacturing. 
  • Groupe Beneteau: Find out how this global market player in the boating industry uses PTC’s Windchill® platform to create a digital thread of information for mass personalization across 27 factories. (And see one of their 42-foot customized boats in Xtropolis, our 200,000 square foot exhibit hall.)
  • Lufthansa Technik Group: Discover how Lufthansa Technik will use Windchill and ThingWorx to significantly increase digitalization within its processes; improve interfaces with customers and suppliers; and generate revenue streams through new, innovative digital business models.
