The aerospace and defense sector is entering a period of significant change, driven by the need to create more sustainable aircraft and reduce the industry’s environmental impact. At the same time, the certification process– and the safety it ensures– remains an essential concern for every aerospace and defense company. As these companies strive to improve sustainability and maximize safety, they must also contend with the increasing complexity of their systems and products. Companies must efficiently coordinate engineering work across multiple domains to address this challenge while meeting project deadlines and controlling costs. They must also work closely with other vital stakeholders in their procurement, manufacturing, and service departments and integrate the efforts of suppliers and original
equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
Industrial machinery engineering, including machine building for batteries, has long been complex, but technological advancements have driven that complexity to new levels. Today’s machines incorporate sensors, software, and smart features in addition to their mechanical, electronic, and electrical components. With these advancements come fresh challenges. Companies must coordinate the work of numerous engineering teams across domains throughout the design process—while also working closely with external stakeholders and their own procurement, manufacturing, and service departments.
Automobiles are growing more advanced—and more complex. Demand for features like autonomous navigation and smart functionality, as well as growing interest in electric vehicles (EVs), have introduced numerous engineering and design challenges. One such challenge is coordinating the efforts of engineering teams across domains.
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 purpose of this eBook is to offer insight into topics that fall beneath the advanced machine engineering umbrella. It starts by looking at the constraints on today’s engineers and the effect they have on design quality. Next, it delves into generative design, offering details on the technology’s use and technical considerations, as well as its application to concept design and detailed design. It finishes by taking a close look at the two-application and single-application solutions that are currently available.
To gain a clearer understanding of how engineering organizations pursue EX—and the common traits shared by organizations that do so successfully—Lifecycle Insights conducted the 2023 Engineering Transformation Study. Its findings reveal significant differences between companies that have successfully pursued EX and those that have been less successful in their attempts. Below are just some of the highlights from this report.
