To better understand why 2D CAD persists as a mainstream tool for those in the AEC industry, Lifecycle
Insights conducted the 2023 CAD Solution Study. Findings from the study not only validated 2D CAD’s persistence as a mainstream solution, but they also revealed that many organizations use it alongside 3D CAD solutions.
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.
Many companies are pursuing systems engineering solutions to address their product design and development challenges, and this report offers clear insight into how they can derive value from such investments.
The 2022 MBSE Study surveyed respondents from companies of varying sizes and from a range of industries, including off-highway, construction, and agricultural equipment; aerospace; automotive; consumer electronics; industrial equipment or heavy machinery; high tech and electronics; and consumer products. Its findings reveal significant differences between the most progressive respondents’ performance outcomes and those of their least progressive counterparts.
The complexity of E/E systems architecture is growing at a startling rate in the automotive and aerospace industries.
This brief offers more detail on the issues driving increased complexity in the automotive and aerospace industries. Then it explores the rising need for collaboration across supply chains and engineering teams to mitigate complexity, and discusses the role of SaaS solutions as a powerful enabler.
Today, engineering and manufacturing companies are entering a new era of complexity.
This brief guides smaller engineering and manufacturing companies in addressing this product development challenge. It looks closely at the issues driving rising E/E complexity, assesses the need for more collaboration and coordination across suppliers and engineering teams, and analyzes the impact of cloud-based SaaS solutions.
Many organizations are working to improve their design documentation processes. Such investment can take many forms and include a range of initiatives.
This brief unpacks how initiatives affect engineering productivity for manufacturers of varying digital maturity. It explains how and why companies often use reduced annotation initiatives with an MBD. It also details how new automation capabilities increase an organization’s engineering productivity.
