The Focus:

The Global Product Data Interoperability Summit (GPDIS) functions as a communications hub for industry principals to foster knowledge through the exchange of ideas, solutions, and methods.

It is a place to build consensus on the data, tool and process standards based on the experience of liked minded professionals. 

Unlike any other conference, GPDIS represents the core data representations and delivery systems that drive our industries. 

The format is vendor-neutral, but all solution providers are encouraged to demonstrate both their technologies and their success stories. 

The range of process methods encompasses MBE, MBD, MBSE, CAM, Product Analysis, Support, the emerging technologies and more. 

The depth of experience extends from a vibrant vendor community, through the large OEMs and engaged lower tiered suppliers, to the family manufacturing business.

 Data readiness in a new age of digital collaboration

September 13 – 17, 2021


The events of the past year have transformed the role of technology in enabling organizations to continue operating and adapting to new challenges and opportunities of working.  Virtual operations and remote collaboration have both made incredible gains in only a short time.  How did the PLM ecosystem fare?  In some cases, digital transformation was accelerated bringing new challenges and new opportunities.  In other cases, organizations stopped. 

Our digital ecosystem for product lifecycle management is being stretched and extended in new ways and pressed into service rapidly.  Data that was previously siloed is being exposed and made available through new technologies and new ways of sharing across domains. 

Key questions emerge:

·        Is this data ready for primetime? 

·        Is the provider giving data that is clear, concise, and valid? 

·        Is the receiver taking data directly into their business seamlessly with all the context and definition they need to succeed? 

If you answered no to these questions, then join us for GPDIS 2021!  Together we will explore the readiness of preparing, distributing, and consuming digital data how reusable that data is toward supporting digital transformation.  Using the Great Race as a metaphor, we will explore the building blocks of digital twins and how interoperability is at the foundation of the digital transformation journey for industry.
