DETROIT--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CIMdata and Auros are hosting a one hour complimentary webinar that overviews how organizations can benefit from implementing knowledge decision support systems within their engineering processes. Organizations that develop ways to capture and reuse knowledge efficiently enjoy a competitive advantage, faster growth and increased profitability. The event will be held on Tuesday, March 11th, 2014 at 11:00AM EST and is open to the press. The webinar will offer expert advice from John MacKrell, Vice President, CIMdata and Dana Nickerson, President, Plural Technology.
“Even the most disciplined organizations make faulty product development decisions,” says Jeff Moffa, who leads the research and product development teams behind the Auros Knowledge Platform. “We see programs stall, opportunities missed, and goals missed. We designed this webinar to help organizations improve decision making to avoid timely and costly product development decisions.”
The central focus of the webinar is on what organizations need in order to build corporate wisdom and use a new breed of decision support tools. Highlights will include:
- The impact of faulty decisions on quality, competitiveness and the bottom line
- The role of high quality knowledge in the decision-making process
- Review of the new breed of decision-support tools
“For some time now, CIMdata has been pointing out that rapid, effective decision making is an essential process for product development organizations,” states John MacKrell, VP of the leading PLM market research and management consulting firm CIMdata. “Yet, it is surprising how few companies have good decision making capabilities. This is critical, because the need for good decision making increases dramatically as the complexity of products increase.”
Will be recorded and made available 24-48 hours after the live event.
