As you may know, I’m here at the PLM Forum in Manheim, Germany to represent the PLM MarketPlace.

Yesterday, I was exchanging on our “online shopping” experiences with a few colleagues from DS and some of our Partners. It appeared to me that online shopping is not “natural” for everybody, maybe because I’m a “digital native” as Jacques says! As we were talking, the discussion came to the PLM MarketPlace and some people asked me how it is possible today to sell PLM software online?

Well, my answer was simple: “we do it like eBay or Amazon sell books, CDs, DVD,…”. As a matter of fact, it is not 100% true, of course! PLM is much more complex than the latest book of Tom Clancy. But if we focus on the online shopping process, this is exactly the same!

Have a look at this video to see how Amazon and PLM MarketPlace are close:

See the similarities?:
- Intuitive search
- Product data sheets
- Add to cart button
- Check out
- Contact form

Only five key and quick steps to get the most appropriate product! Of course, the purpose of PLM MarketPlace is not to allow you to pay online but to find a solution you need and then to be assisted by a VAR to get an appropriate price and the knowledge to implement and use it. Connecting Partners in fact!

So, in a nutshell, as I told to my folks yesterday: “PLM MarketPlace is a kind of Amazon for PLM”: browse, find, be contacted, buy!

At the heart of the 48th Paris Airshow at Le Bourget.

Despite the rain, we had some great in flight demo yesterday, including the latest Falcon 7X, the A380, the Antonov AN148 and, on the military side, the Rafale and F-16.
On the ground, you can enjoy a close look at the Boeing B777F from Air France, the Airbus A380 and A321, the Dassault Falcon family but also some impressive equipements from the US Air Force (including the huge C-17).

But Paris Airshow is not all about planes made of composite and heavy metal! I really encourage you to take some time to visit the different booths and chalets where you will find some of our PLM MarketPlace partners: Airbus Cimpa, ESI Group, Optis and Samtech. All of them would be really pleased to welcome you on their booth and tell you more about their solutions.

Are you planning to visit them before enjoying a flight demonstration? OK, it's an advice from an aviation enthusiast, but listen: Paris Airshow is a unique opportunity to mix business and pleasure, so don't hesitate anymore and join us!

Well gotta leave: I've got a slot to visit my future bizjet ;-)

For SEAT’s Prototype Center of Development (CPD), the release of tools integrated into CATIA V5 such as PAM-DIEMAKER for CATIA V5, allows a rapid and accurate development of die design. It is very valuable to be able to perform the appropriate geometrical changes and to have these evolutions simultaneously available for machining within CATIA. This represents a tremendous advantage in terms of productivity as well as for the final quality of our design, giving us the opportunity to perform our work in a common environment during all process phases.” Javier Diaz Martinez, Manager of the Prototype Center of Development (CPD), SEAT S.A.

SEAT’s Prototype Center of Development (CPD), situated in the manufacturing plant of the Spanish company in Martorell (Barcelona) is considered one of the most innovative in the Spanish industry and is emblematic within the Volkswagen Group. It gathers in a single location all activities linked to the development of prototypes for virtual and physical phases, from pre-serial vehicles to serial analyses.

PAM-DIEMAKER for CATIA V5 is a breakthrough solution allowing die designers to create quickly the first draft of a die addendum within minutes directly in their CAD environment.
PAM-DIEMAKER for CATIA V5 offers powerful interactive parametric tools and functions which provide guidance and support for part preparation, binder development and die addendum design with direct connection to simulation.

PAM-DIEMAKER for CATIA V5, as well as other solutions from ESI Group are available on
