Which Causes Which? Resource Shifts or Delays?

If you’ve been reading this blog for the past few months, you know I’ve ben pulling a number of findings from the PLM Study that we conducted in January. The most interesting of those findings have had nothing to do with technology, but have provided insight into the organizational performance of engineering.

In this post, we’re going to dive into that topic again, looking at the correlation between shifting resources and delays in the launch of new products.

Move to MBD: Can We See Results?

Last week, Chad talked on the blog about findings from The Model Based Enterprise Study. It found that, while 57% of the 575 respondent companies released 3D annotated models for at least some projects, only 2% exclusively used 3D MBD. We thought we’d take a look at some of those companies from the 2% to

Engineering’s Struggle to Justify Technology

Been keeping track of us on social media over the past few days? If you have, I wonder if you’ve noticed the trend. You see, we’ve been posting a few new findings on the top challenges for different technologies from past research studies, including The Simulation Driven Design Study, The Model-Based Enterprise Study and The PLM Study.

MBD: Commitment is Low, Value is High

In recent years, there has been a lot of discussion about Model Based Definitions, the idea of using 3D models embedded with annotations alongside or instead of 2D drawings. Much of the discussion has been spurred by contractual mandates in the aerospace and defense industry on suppliers to deliver such digital intellectual property alongside physical parts.
