Blog: Dave LeggettProduction Life Database (PLDB)

Dave Leggett | 23 March 2004

We've developed a new global database of passenger vehicles that we think ought to be of interest to a few people. If you want details on things like what's in production now, when models are scheduled to finish, platform designations and next product actions, our Production Life Database (or PLDB) may be of interest. I took a good look at it yesterday, prior to final launch, and I liked it a lot.

It is easy to interrogate and data can be exported for spreadsheet analysis easily also. And the lesser known makes - eg new ones in China - are covered too.

Do please have a look.

Click the link below to find out more. And please feel free to let me know what you think. Feedback, good or bad, is always very much appreciated here.

Tip: when you click on the link to the PLDB page, scroll down to the bottom of the page and take the virtual tour of the database.
