sendler\circle

Special Interest Group, formed 1995

In the sendler\circle (in the first years under the name "CADcircle experts forum") the managing directors or marketing directors of important software vendors and service providers in the environment of PLM and other industry software meet twice a year to exchange experiences and to discuss the general market development. Not always at such beautiful locations as the Irsee Monastery (photo Christoph A. Hellhake). But most of the time. Top-class external speakers shed light on topics that are burning on the nails of the industry, and representatives of the manufacturing industry report from practical applications.

The IT offerings of the member companies focus on industrial processes in the manufacturing industry and in plant engineering, as well as on the management of the product data generated there throughout the entire product life cycle. From CAD/CAM/CAE and PDM to collaboration of distributed teams, project management and virtual reality to interfaces to other application areas such as ERP, SCM and CRM.

The sendler\circle also forms the hub of communication among participants between meetings and sees itself as this industry's interface to third parties.
