It seems like every industry is undergoing an electrification transformation in one way or another. At the center of that transformation is an increasing reliance on industrial battery systems and a rapidly growing demand for more powerful and efficient batteries.
Shipbuilding has never been a simple undertaking, and that’s true now more than ever. Requirements in the industry are growing more complex, new technologies are being introduced, and external partners are increasing in number, making it even more challenging to deliver projects on time and on budget. At
the same time, doing so has never been more important. Today’s shipbuilders must satisfy quality requirements, meet industry standards, and hit deadlines to remain competitive and navigate a volatile global economy. Those with inefficient communication or data-sharing practices put deadlines at risk and increase the likelihood of delivery delays and associated penalties.
Heavy equipment engineering is already a complicated undertaking, but advancements in smart, connected technology have introduced even greater complexity. Today’s heavy equipment features mechanical, electronic, and electrical components—and also brings sensors and software into the mix. As a result, engineering teams across disciplines at heavy equipment companies must coordinate their work during the design phase while simultaneously collaborating with other internal and external stakeholders.
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.
Lifecycle Insights recently performed a survey of small and medium manufacturers to learn more about the challenges they face when it comes to the importance of data and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This survey spanned multiple countries and reached over 250 key decision makers.
