IDEAL PLM Technology Day at Tampere Hall 26.1.2017

Event page


25 Years at Your Service

In 1992, two engineering enthusiasts Antti Knuuttila and Terho Valtonen saw the growing interest in computer aided design software that revolutionised the world of engineering, both globally and in Finland. In 1992 there was a distinctive shift from paper-based design to software systems creating new opportunities for manufacturers, which lead the entrepreneurial duo to start up their company. Currently, the company has a turnover of 12,5 meur and employs more than 90 people in Finland and Russia.

Now in 2017, the world is in the middle of a major change again. Industrial Internet and digitalisation offer many new opportunities in the engineering world. The need to remain agile, yet competitive, remains at the heart of Finnish manufacturing.

IDEAL PLM has spent the past 25 years driving their commitment to improve customers’ competitiveness in the product lifecycle management (PLM) domain through adding value at every step. This year’s IDEAL PLM Technology Day will again unite Finnish Siemens PLM software users and celebrate the PLM journey to date and explore future digitalisation opportunities. The event will delve deeper into Digitalisation and showcase ways to adopt Siemens PLM Software solutions.
