Inauguration Ceremony : 8th International Conference on PLMSS on 17-12-2021
Pre-Conference Workshop on 16 December 2021

Theme: Digital Aerospace Manufacturing

Organised by


Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is the process of managing entire lifecycle of a product from its inception through its linkage to system engineering philosophy and forms a platform for design, development, manufacturing, operations etc throughout the life of the product. PLM increases productivity and eliminates wastes and thereby acts as a pillar for innovation driven industries. Product Lifecycle Modeling Simulation and Synthesis Conference (PLMSS-2021) will be a platform to exchange ideas and information about the latest PLM practices to achieve product excellence and improve yield. The intention of the conference is to unify R & D institutes, academia and industry to discuss over novel methods, challenges and possibilities in PLM in the space system perspective. The seven previous PLMSS conferences were successfully hosted by ADA – Bangalore with IISc in Dec 2006, NAL CSIR-Bangalore in November 2008, PSG College of Technology Coimbatore in December 2011, VIT University Vellore in January 2014, ASL DRDO – Hyderabad with BITS Hyderabad in December 2015, DIAT – Pune with Tech Mahindra in December 2017 and CABS DRDO – Bangalore with CPDM IISc – Bangalore in December 2019.
