Manufacturers like you have put significant effort and investment into improving your Product Engineering. Now the focus is on improving manufacturing to drive greater overall efficiency with limited resources and fully integrated business processes. Product Engineering, however, comprises only a small part of your enterprise costs. The larger savings opportunities reside in the roughly 75% of your budget that represents manufacturing.

How can you improve your manufacturing to drive greater overall efficiency with limited resources and fully integrated business processes?

With increased attention on digitalization, significant gains can be achieved by leveraging capabilities like Design for Manufacturing, Early Concept Planning, and more accurate and aligned Detailed Planning for production. How can you take these capabilities to the next level?

Join us on April 24th for a discussion of the trends driving the manufacturing community and how the complete “Digital Twin” of Product and Planning addresses these trends by shifting manufacturing earlier in the development cycle to generate faster, more accurate, and lower cost launches.

Some of the topics we will cover include:

  • Reduce cost-of-change and shorten time-to-launch by engaging DFM upfront
  • Improve quality utilizing integrated quality collaboration
  • Reduce problems at launch by virtually validating and optimizing all aspects of production early
