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.
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.
SAFE AND SUSTAINABLE AVIATION: THE CRITICAL ROLE OF DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION AND SIMULATION
Today’s aviation industry is hyper focused on safety and sustainability. The growing emphasis on safety and sustainability leads to mounting system complexity. Organizations struggle to prioritize these tenets under the weight of new features, novel business models and operational requirements.
The 2020 Product Development IT Ecosystem Benchmark Report
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.
