About : 10th International Conference on Product Lifecycle Modeling, Simulation and Synthesis (PLMSS)

In today’s business environment, the role of digitalization is mandatory in product design, development and support. It facilitates validation of product design, realisation process & maintenance strategies in virtual environment much ahead of manufacturing. Digitalization has become essential for managing the ever-increasing product complexity, diversity, built-in quality and achieving first time right in new product development. In digital product development ecosystem, Modeling, Simulation and Synthesis are dovetailed into a collaborative Product Lifecycle Modeling (PLM) framework for seamless connectivity and visibility to all the stakeholders. The Product Lifecycle Modeling, Simulation and Synthesis (PLMSS) International Conference aims to provide a platform for fruitful deliberations and sharing of knowledge/experiences in new technologies/processes pertaining to this domain as well as challenges and solutions among diverse players from academia, industry and R&D organisations.

The current edition of PLMSS conference, 10th in the series is being conducted at BITS Pilani, Pilani Campus under the aegis of PLMSS Trust. Previous nine editions of the conference were successfully hosted by ADA & IISc Bengaluru (2006), NAL Bengaluru (2008), PSG Tech Coimbatore (2011), VIT Vellore (2013), ASL/DRDO & BITS Hyderabad (2015), DIAT Pune (2017), CABS/DRDO & IISc Bengaluru (2019), VSSC/ISRO & IIST Trivandrum (2021) and ADA & IISc Bengaluru (2023).


Birla Institute of Technology & Science, BITS Pilani, is an all-India Institute for higher education. The primary aim of BITS is to "train young men and women able and eager to create and put into action such ideas, methods, techniques, and information". The Institute is a dream come true of its founder, the late Mr G.D. Birla, an eminent industrialist, a participant in the Indian freedom struggle, and a close associate of Mahatma Gandhi. What started in the early 1900s as a small school has blossomed into a set of colleges for higher education, ranging from the humanities to engineering. In 1964, all of these colleges amalgamated to form a unique Indian university of international standing, christened the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, known to many as BITS Pilani.

Over the years, BITS has provided the highest quality technical education to students from all over India admitted on the basis of merit. Its graduates can be found worldwide in all areas of engineering, science, and commerce. BITS symbolises the maturing of Indian technical ability and "can-do" entrepreneurial spirit, especially as derived from the private sector. BITS is located in the Vidya Vihar campus, adjacent to the town of Pilani in Rajasthan.

BITS Pilani’s mission is to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century. The Institute is committed to generate, disseminate, and preserve knowledge, and to work with others to bring this knowledge to bear on the world's great challenges. BITS Pilani is dedicated to provide its students with an education that combines rigorous academic study and the excitement of discovery with the support and intellectual stimulation of a diverse campus community. We seek to develop in each member of the BITS community the ability and passion to work wisely, creatively, and effectively for the betterment of humankind.


Started in 1946, Mechanical Engineering Degree Program is one of the oldest at BITS Pilani, Pilani campus. The department is vibrant with several activities round the year. It is a DST-FIST sponsored (2002-2007) and UGC-SAP sponsored (2007-2012) department. We have a research focus that benefits industry, society and the environment. The department offers two Integrated First Degree Programs and three Higher Degree Programs on campus apart from Work Integrated Learning Program (WILP) under continued education scheme. The curricula are highly demanding and attract exceptionally meritorious students from all over India. Research emphasis is there in all tires of education, First Degree, Higher Degree and Ph.D. Students look for challenging careers in the best of the organisations within India and abroad. There is huge potential in the department for Consultancy as well as Technology and Product incubation. The department takes pride in the achievements of its alumni, who have shined in various walks of life.


PLMSS Trust was registered in December 2014 at Bengaluru by the Heads of DRDO, ADA, NAL & IISc in order to take up research, aid, promote, guide, manage, coordinate, execute and disseminate activities in the different areas such as CAD, CAM, CAE, PLM, ERP and other related topics in Aerospace, Automobile, High-Tech and concerned industries. One of the prime activities is to facilitate and initiate the organization of the International Conference PLMSS. The Trust has also been organising special lectures and workshops on its foundation day.
