Lifecycle Insights’ 2020 Product Development IT Ecosystem Study shows that demand for smart, connected products is the top driver changing product development today. In this benchmark report, we expand on the findings from the Product Development IT Ecosystem Study.
Eliminate Friction in Design: Leveraging CAD Technologies for Global Collaboration
Engineering plays a critical role in the design process, but they face a range of challenges when trying to complete project requirements. Fortunately, solutions exist to reduce this friction.
This report discusses these challenges and the new tools engineers can use to reduce the friction in collaboration.
The Digital Transformation Guide for Aerospace Suppliers
Developing and delivering products as a smaller aerospace supplier is no easy task today. Many issues make it more difficult for smaller aerospace suppliers to succeed today. Digital Transformation initiatives offer a path to counter those issues.
This report compares development processes run with traditional approaches with those converted by a Digital Transformation initiative.
Next Generation Machine Shops: Powering Profitable Growth Through Automation
Machining equipment is more precise than ever before. Competition is now global instead of local. Machine shops must work hard to keep existing customers and to find new clients. The very pace of change is accelerating in machining. Machine shops have the option to respond to such relentless innovation by resisting or embracing it. From the top floor to the shop floor, companies can incrementally improve or radically transform every aspect of the business.
The Integrated Systems Development Report
Lifecycle Insights’ Systems Development Benchmark Study shows many companies are struggling to keep up with consumers’ demands for digitally enabled products. At the same time, our findings show the most progressive companies report strong organizational performance gains. These progressive companies share several common attributes. These include the early use of simulation — both mechanics and electronics — and model-based systems engineering. This report shares study findings to guide manufacturers navigating similar changes.
THE PLM DEPLOYMENT HANDBOOK: PLANNING AND DRIVING DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
Product Lifecycle Management is a crucial enabler for Digital Transformation initiatives. PLM powers the complete, digital definition of a product across engineering domains and functional departments. It drives and automates digital processes within and across companies. It is a fundamental building block to Digital Transformation. This report explains how to plan and deploy PLM in support of a Digital Transformation effort.
The Equipment Supplier’s Guide to Profitable RFQ Processes
This survey-based research report shares responses from 135 suppliers and buyers involved in RFQ processes. It provides fact-based guidance on RFQ strategies and tactics. It also clears up many misconceptions and offers insights into buyers’ priorities. Suppliers can use this as a map for profitable growth.
The Four Benefits of Simulation-Driven Design
The challenge of manipulating designs to achieve performance goals and produce innovative products has become more daunting. Engineers must work with increasingly complicated requirements. Nevertheless, some approaches offer hope. Simulation-driven design is one of them. This report presents the business benefits of taking a simulation-driven design approach, enabled by engineers, across the design cycle.
The Tactical Guide to Deploying MBE Initiatives
Model-Based Enterprise initiatives are ripe with potential. Yet, many struggle to lay out a deployment plan in a logical, rational sequence. This report provides detailed guidance for the initial development of an MBD in engineering all the way to expand it to procurement, tooling design, machining, and inspection.
