UNCOVER NEW ENGINEERING TRENDS
There’s no doubt about it: The twin themes of disruption and digital transformation have dominated engineering for the past year. Findings from Lifecycle Insights’ studies showed that many organizations struggled mightily with skyrocketing complexity, the new normal of working from home, and more. And while some barely survived, others thrived.
Results from our studies showed a strong correlation between timely investments in digital transformation and measurable improvements in performance. The coming year, undoubtedly, will present new challenges. And the initiatives that delivered benefits over the last year are not guaranteed to deliver again.
To better understand what the next year holds for engineering, Lifecycle Insights will conduct a new, in-depth study in early 2022. Its findings will guide executives’ decisions on where and how to pursue improvement efforts. Lifecycle Insights will publish the results in blog posts, briefs, reports, videos and much more over the course of the coming year.
STUDY DOMAINS AND THEMES
- Design documentation, simulation, and testing for mechanical, electrical, electronic, software and system aspects of products.
- Internet-of-things product operations, such as collection and analysis of streaming data, edge operations, digital twins and closed loop design processes.
- Engineering, documentation, simulation, installation, and commissioning of manufacturing environments, such as numerically-controlled equipment instructions, additive manufacturing, and robotic programming, as well as production cells, lines and facilities.
- Measuring current and future complexity in each of the study’s domains.
- Quantifying past, current and future investments in digital transformation initiatives in each of the study’s domains.
- Gauging the current state and future movement towards cloud IT environments.
- Assessing the current and future profiles of the modern engineer in terms of adaptability, responsibilities, and skills in each of the study’s domains.
