PSA Presented at the Configuration Management Process Improvement Center (CMPIC) Conference – CM Trends 2011

Online PR News – 29-September-2011 – – Professional Systems Associates (PSA) exhibited its product lifecycle management (PLM) tool and Rob Stone presented “CM/PLM Process Automation Perspectives” at the CM Trends Conference in Orlando, FL. The CM Trends conference taught configuration management (CM) professionals about CM practices, tools and processes in configuration management.

Rob Stone, Senior Systems Analyst at PSA presented on September 19, 2011. Rob stated, “The automation of configuration and product lifecycle management processes using a CM/PLM software tool is potentially one of the largest benefits of such an implementation. Planning and documenting these processes is perhaps one of the most important aspects of using a CM/PLM tool effectively. If you have a good process plan, and manage it well over time, your CM/PLM implementation will likely enjoy much more success. We discussed perspectives for thinking about the planning and documentation of processes to be automated using a CM/PLM tool. We also walked through an example of how this might be done using a unique approach that appeals to those out there who tend to shy away from flowcharts.”

Rob Stone is a Senior Systems Analyst at PSA with 12-years experience in the configuration and product lifecycle management industry; and has worked in the planning, implementation, and support of information systems (hardware and software) since 1992.

According to CMPIC, CM Trends “… is a unique, interactive experience in which CM professionals are given the opportunity to further their CM education, network with other CM professionals, and be a part of an exchange of ideas and information.” For more information visit
