From our recent case study about Jakob Müller, thinkers of the international Industrial Equipment (IE) and manufacturing sector say that to satisfy customer requirements companies must be able to rapidly transfer development and production of a product to any of its globally located sites. A key element of companies’ demand and supply equation is easy access to data regardless of where it is located. It is a matter of efficiency. Any effective leader understands this especially in a world that is more connected than ever. But while being connected facilitates communication and opens new channels for consumers to express their needs it also puts pressure on companies to satisfy their customers’ growing expectations and still make a profit. Customize and cater to local preferences, yes, but not at any price.
But not for everyone. IE companies in the know can produce more products tailored to customer expectations while keeping costs in check by using tools that provide all need-to-know actors with easy access to product data, previously designed components, intellectual property, and workflows from anywhere in the world, seamlessly and naturally. Products are released to market faster because bottlenecks inherent with inefficient management of a multi-site development organization are avoided.
Not possible you say?
Well, as a matter of fact, it is possible by working with a single source of product truth in a unique and unified environment. No more wasting time looking for information. No more errors because decisions were made based on outdated data. Single Source for Speed Industry Solution Experience is the answer for IE companies with a global footprint that deal with the complexities of industrial machine production in a digitally connected age and that need to integrate various disciplines like mechanical, electrical, piping and structural in the same data model. All actors can share, collaborate, exchange ideas and work as a community from anywhere on a single source of 3D product data. Utopic, you say? It is already being done thanks to 3DEXPERIENCE
