AU 2014 The Devil is In the Detail—PDM/PLM: Parker Hannifin's Journey

Dusting off the old keyboard been a while..! Just a quick post to let you know about my class this year at AU2014 

PL5315 The Devil is In the Detail—PDM and PLM: Parker Hannifin Corporation's Journey

In this class you will hear first hand from one of our customers, Parker Hannifin and how they deployed Autodesk Vault software from a small group of 30 users to what is now over 1500 active users. You will also learn how they plan to use Autodesk PLM 360 software to manage the other processes that support engineering, quality, costing, quoting, and supplier management, you will see how this will enable them to use cloud-based PLM collaboration to extend the product data management productivity and increase the time to market of products and services.

I will be joined by Maarten Weers from Parker Hannifin the CAD Manager for IT Core Competency Team in EMEA so you can hear first hand from one of our customers. Maarten started his career as a Mechanical Engineer over 20 years ago, implementing software to support company work flows fascinated him from the first day, where he became the interface between engineering, management and IT, this role continued for 13 years. After six years working for a software company developing CAD tools, Maarten then joined Parker Hannifin, where he initiated and coordinated the implementation of Autodesk Vault for the Sales Companies in Europe which are located in seven different countries. This year his focus is on the use of Autodesk PLM360 for the engineering and quality departments.
