CM Forum event no 4 – Make sure to sign up!

Check out the program and registrate for CM Forum event no 4, taking place at Ericsson in Kista on Dec 2nd.

This time we will focus on CM challenges in a networked society. What new benefits and challenges related to CM come with advanced IT environments and new models for co-operation such as open source? To give context to our discussion and provide us with very real and tangible examples in relation to this workshop theme, Ericsson will introduce us to their organisation and approach to CM.

CM FORUM events for the fall – register now!

We now have finalized the venues and dates for the fall of 2015:

CM Forum event no 3 – 2015-09-22 at Volvo CE, Eskilstuna

WLO_L180H_1_11614_01_HWorkshop theme: How can CM support Requirement Management in a product line environment?

When a new generation of a product line is to be developed, the CM challenges usually increase: Current design structures are affected, requirements are added and modified and additional variants and versions of products, subsystems and maintenance concepts will be taken to market. We will dedicate two workshop sessions  addressing how CM can enable adequate structures to support a development project. To give context to our discussion and provide us with very real and tangible examples in relation to this workshop theme, Volvo CE will introduce us to their products and current CM function. Register here.


CM Forum event no 4 – 2015-11-26 at Ericsson, Kista

Workshop theme is yet to be defined. Save the date, registration will be possible later.

All seats to the Kick-off are filled

All 45 seats for the kick-off on march 5th are filled. Having extracted the statistics of the questionare that has been sent out to the attendants we can conclude that there is good spread between operative – strategic roles, between different industry sectors and between experiences of working with CM using different development models. See the graphs below (maybe unfortunate for some that we made the questionare in Swedish …).
