As high-tech products, systems, processes and data become more complex, companies are leveraging digital technologies - like digital twins, smart connected operations and machine learning - to build value and stay competitive.
High tech companies today must deal with more complex products, growing customer expectations and a broad ecosystem of partners. Maintain focus on time-to-market and innovation with a more holistic approach to variant management.
Discrete manufacturers and R&D professionals have long viewed product lifecycle management (PLM) as a means to enhance manufacturing and design process management, data integrity and digital mockup. While these capabilities serve as a baseline to address operational challenges, current out-of-the-box solutions lack the maturity to maximize the value of product data and quickly tie it to business decisions.
Here are practical steps to equip you with the knowledge and insight needed to advance a smart connected operations initiative within your organization.
Smart connected operations allow manufacturers to leverage emerging technology to tap the well of data at their fingertips, creating insights at scale that can be used to improve operational performance and discover new business models.
Working to advance Industry 4.0 in your organization? Here's how to create commitment and buy-in while addressing fundamental changes to collaboration and culture.
Industry 4.0 will change the competitive landscape for manufacturers. Companies must quickly adapt to internal and external pressure to innovate with new products, so traditionally discrete business units will need to come together to meet market demands.
The demand for smart products drives the need for smart manufacturing, including new ways to link consumers directly to manufacturing methods. Here's what manufacturing executives need to know to address the digital innovation challenge.
To achieve true innovation results transformation, all semiconductor firms must now move beyond a basic approach to PLM/PDM with enhanced innovation and new product development capabilities, including the creation of a comprehensive product record.
To understand what digital manufacturing really means for industrial manufacturers, and how it might evolve from where we are today, here’s our peek into the future. All people, company and product names (except ours) are fictitious.
