BigLever: Bring Products To Market Faster with a Platform-Modularity Approach

Product-centric and platform-modularity approaches are common methods used to develop products. For companies with only one product, the product-centric approach works well. However, manufacturers with a family of products utilize product line engineering for increased efficiency. Developing products with a platform-modularity approach brings a host of benefits.  Introduction to a Platform-Modularity Approach For many companies, …

The Impact of PTC’s CREO Moving to a Cloud-Based Platform

Over the past few years, PTC has gradually transitioned its offerings to an annual subscription format. As a result, the overwhelming majority of its customers have switched to this recurring revenue model. Now, PTC is hard at work moving its core products to Atlas, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that was acquired as part of Onshape. …

Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE: A Progressive Approach to Modeling and Simulation

In a recent post, we discussed the challenges associated with a traditional approach to simulation where engineers and analysts work in silos using unintegrated tools. When team members can’t collaborate effectively, companies must contend with inaccurate or incomplete data that cause delays and increased costs. In order to address these issues, companies need to take …

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 …
