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.
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.
Building Solutions to Fill Your Functionality Gaps in Your End-to-End Process
Does your application architecture include the use of multiple disconnected solutions to fill functionality “gaps” across your end-to-end process? Each does an important job. Few can be eliminated. Join us for a webinar on the new future for building custom applications quickly and strategically giving users the customer functionality they need.

Simulation-driven design: Is it right for your size company?
Designing the next generation of smart, connected products is no easy task. Company owners are asking engineers at small to mid-sized companies to work against ever-shortening schedules. Requirements are more stringent and sometimes conflicting. Budgets are tight, with little to no flexibility. There are many technology-led initiatives to help engineers succeed, and none are more achievable than simulation-driven product design.

Powering Engineering Collaboration across Product Development (Bundle)
Engineering collaboration is a key component of any successful product development process. It occurs between engineers within the same discipline and across disciplines. It happens early and throughout the process as engineers work with procurement agents, tool designers, NC programmers, quality inspectors and more. This bundle includes four publications that share educational materials, thought leadership, and findings from recent research studies on these topics and more.
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.
Realizing Simulation Driven Design (Bundle)
A Simulation-Driven Design strategy offers many benefits. It reduces rounds of prototyping and testing, resulting in hard cost savings. It uncovers design performance issues, allowing engineers to define new solutions early when there are fewer constraints. It allows simulation analysts to focus on the biggest, hardest analyses, allowing them to focus their considerable talents on the most difficult problems. This bundle of five publications shares educational materials, thought leadership, and findings from recent research studies, offering holistic insight into this technology-led initiative.
Cloud Enabled Digital Transformation of Product Development
Day by day, the use of cloud-based solutions is expanding. Is it ready for product development? This report shares findings from Lifecycle Insights’ Cloud Adoption study, identifying the biggest development improvement opportunities where cloud solutions have a fit.
