Calculations are the lifeblood of engineering-intensive organizations, yet, traditionally, they have not been tracked or tied to other product information. Increasingly, companies are realizing the importance of managing and storing calculations as an important engineering data type. Today, Mathsoft hosts an IDC guest speaker for a free Webinar aimed at organizations seeking insight into the role of Calculation Management(TM) and the value it contributes to Product Life-Cycle Management (PLM) systems.
Join IDC's Gisela Wilson, director of product life-cycle management solutions program, tomorrow for a free Webinar entitled, "Calculation Management within the Emerging Framework of Product Life-Cycle Management (PLM)." This session will explain how to leverage calculation management as an element of a company's product life-cycle management and ways that calculation management can enhance information flow and data sharing.
