The holiday season is fast approaching and already arrived for some, and consequentally, the announcements in the PLM space have also started to slow down. Notwithstanding, of course, the debut of Autodesk's take on product lifecycle management which is still receiving much buzz in the blogosphere.
One article that I greatly enjoyed reading this week was Cadanalyst's Brian Shepherd's take on the necessity for PLM in the global product development chain in his article "Break Down the Barriers to Global Product Development." Be sure to check it out for yet another advocacy of the adoption of PLM.
