To achieve this, a company’s product development IT ecosystem plays an important role, helping organizations develop smart, connected products on time and on budget. This brief shares findings from a Lifecycle Insights study on what solution types improve organizational performance with a focus on mechanical design.
THE DIGITAL APPROACH TO INDUSTRIAL MACHINERY DESIGN: Creating Equipment that Increases Cycle Speed and Improves Yields
This eBook provides an overview of the latest advances modern companies are harnessing to develop more complex machinery and equipment on shorter schedules. We highlight several common development challenges and the progressive approaches, including practices and technologies, that best address them.
BUILDING SMART, CONNECTED PRODUCTS: Leading Manufacturers Reduce Product Development Challenges with These Key Technology Enablers
This eBook examines the methods and key technology enablers that keep manufacturers competitive during the transition to smart, connected products. It also shares exclusive findings from the Lifecycle Insights 2020 Engineering Executive’s Strategic Agenda study.
Mitigating Risks to Model-based Definition Initiatives in Multi-CAD Environments
Model-based definition (MBD) initiatives are on the rise, replacing traditional drawings and benefiting companies across the development lifecycle and beyond. Engineers often share an MBD with internal and external stakeholders. Each party uses different CAD applications that can produce minute but important variations in the model.
Building A Better Startup
It is hard to build a successful startup, especially for hardware products. Startups must find product-market fit, secure financing, find the right people and much more. The goal of the Lifecycle Insights 2020 Startup Study is to uncover approaches and practices that can increase the chances of success.
This survey-based eBook documents the biggest challenges that startups face today and recommends solutions that startup leaders can put in place to drive success.
THE SIMULATION DIGITAL THREAD ACROSS PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Simulation has expanded. It now includes every stage of the development process, from concept design to executable digital twins in operation. Analysis now delivers value across product development. The Simulation Digital Thread is a fundamental building block to applying simulation throughout Product Development.
Realizing Simulation’s Full Value Through Easy, Rich, Interactive Results
Simulation-driven design enables better design decisions and reduces development costs. Yet, many fail to realize the real business value of simulation due to technology shortcomings. This eBook discusses shortcomings up the typical approach and recommendations to overcome those challenges.
A Visual Tour of the Digital Thread
The vision of the digital thread is simple. Understanding it is not. This eBook visually walks through the creation of a Model-Based Definition in engineering and through all its uses throughout a company.
Enabling Supplier Collaboration With The Right Tools
Many companies are conflicted about collaborating with suppliers. It is critical to spur innovation. Yet, done incorrectly, it can expose intellectual property. This eBook compares and contrasts several technological approaches to enabling IP secure supplier collaboration.
