The Escalating Complexity of NPI

Companies are trying to keep up with escalating consumer demands. As a result, companies’ new product introduction processes have become more complex.

This is the second in a series of six articles outlining findings from our 2021 NPI and Sourcing study.

The Fundamental Problems with Modeling and Simulation

Amid a landscape of shortened timelines and more complex products, companies are increasingly using simulation to digitally verify that a product meets requirements and performs as designed. Yet, engineers and analysts often find themselves working in silos, making contributions that are not in sync. Design engineers use computer-aided design (CAD) tools to design, while the …

Flexibility and Adaptability in Digital Transformation Initiatives

What kind of flexibility and agility do you need in your digital transformations? Our CEO and Chief Analyst Chad Jackson talks through the need for both in this Aras’ post.

Altair: Managing the Data Twin and the Physics Twin

Using a digital twin in the design process has enabled engineers to refine product designs through models and simulations. Most digital twin systems are centered around modeling the operation of a product, but Altair has a different perspective that incorporates two separate digital twins.  Altair’s Digital Twin Concept Altair takes a two-pronged approach to implementing …

The digital twin’s changing role

Manufacturing organizations are increasingly looking to digital twins to save time and money in the product development lifecycle. In this Siemens’ blog post, Chad Jackson discusses how these virtual models of both products and plants help organizations streamline the product development process from design to operation and leverage the symbiotic relationship between plants and products to gain insights that power more informed decisions.

The Manager’s Survival Guide to Digital Engineering

Taking a digital engineering approach to manufacturing—one composed of architecture-driven and model-based engineering—offers significant advantages (not to mention tangible benefits both in terms of time and costs). Yet, change is never easy. How can engineering executives ease the transformation? This Survival Guide to Digital Engineering will help create a path to success.
