PLM 360 Use Cases at Autodesk University 2015

By     SEPTEMBER 23, 2015

Hello PLM fans. Autodesk University 2015 is approaching, and this year the PLM and Data Management track is loaded with must-see classes. In this post we’ll introduce a few PLM 360 classes, the majority of which have a customer focus in either a case study or technical deep dive. First, when you browse the AU 2015 Class Catalog, you can use the filters on the left to sort for PLM classes. Fun Fact: to find courses on the PLM and Data Management Track – look for classes with the ‘PL’ prefix. 

One new highlight this year is the showcasing of our PLM customers. Be sure to check out the "PLM Customer Solution" PowerTrack where you can learn first hand about real use cases of PLM 360 within an organization. Here are the classes below, along with links to add them to your schedule:
