Research study on PLM - we'd like your input (incentivised)

Hi community,

I wonder if you'd be interested in providing your input. 

We are conducting research analysis on the worldwide Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) market. We are talking to users of a range of PLM/PDM solutions about their perceptions of the PLM solutions and vendors that provide them. We are also trying to better understand how do leading companies manage their workflows using PLM (CAD management, change, BOM, configurations etc.). Your views and input would be very much appreciated.    

About us:

The Business Advantage Group is a research organisation with offices in the UK and USA, specialised in research within the CAD/CAM/PLM space (Please feel free to visit our website: As well as working with some of the world leaders of CAD/CAM solutions, providing research and analysis to aid them with innovation and future product developments, we also write articles, reports, whitepapers, run focus groups, webinars and produce a yearly CAD Trends report.  

As well as having the opportunity to share your experiences and thoughts on “PLM”, you will receive €80/£70/$100 Amazon gift card for your valuable time and contribution, (or we will be happy to make a donation on your behalf to a charity of your choice, we can also provide you with our yearly CAD Trends report due out for release in June 2021). The telephone discussion will last approximately 30-45 minutes.

The types of questions we are exploring in this study are mainly on perceptions of PLM/PDM solutions, vendors that provide them and workflow capabilities of your current PLM solution (i.e. Design CAD data management; BOM, configurations; Change management etc.).

I would like to assure you that at no point will anyone try to sell you anything; this interview will be conducted as per the Market Research Society code of conduct and all results will be amalgamated and will not be attributed to you personally or your organisation without your consent. It is not our intention to ask for any company-confidential information; we are only looking for your perception of PLM solutions as well as feedback on PLM in terms of capability.

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me by email should you have any queries, or to schedule an appointment.

We would love to hear your views and very much hope you can take part!

Many thanks and kind regards,
