In requirements management, we have achieved a 30 percent to 40 percent improvement in its management processes, including traceability and reuse of requirements” explains Peter Servi, Senior Manager for Enterprise PLM and Engineering Applications at Fujitsu.

To help eliminate the churn and streamline its processes, Fujitsu turned to Dassault Systèmes and its high-tech solutions on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, custom built for the way high tech companies work.

Fujitsu Network Communications needed to speed time to market by eliminating inefficiencies in its requirements management and test case management processes while maintaining the highest level of product quality.

Fujitsu chose the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform to address requirements, traceability and test. The goal is to improve Fujitsu’s data visibility, eliminate rework, and streamline product development from initial customer requirement to manufacturing.

Discover the full Fujitsu Network Communications customer story in which you will learn how the company has reduced flow-time by at least 20%, reduced quality issues by at least 10%, and improved security as well as data search, history and reporting.

Overcoming complexity during High Tech product development

Consumers and businesses alike demand and expect products that perform flawlessly, provide continually improving experiences, anticipate their needs, are small and light weight, and are fast, interactive, and simple to operate, explains CIMdata.

That’s nothing new. But providing powerful, yet simple to use consumer electronic products is not a simple case anymore! Today’s electronics are so complex that no one person can hold the entire design in their mind. As a result we now have to abstract development and depend upon that abstraction to properly link underlying design detail to the overall design. Moreover, development teams are now often geographically distributed to attain lowest possible design costs. So, we trade improved outcomes for increased complexity. We then depend upon development experience software to manage the relationships for us. That’s not as simple as it sounds. It requires a vast range of experience considerations and capabilities, with many of them working against each other, thus demanding artful compromises in implementation.

Adding to this challenge, electronics and software are pervasive across many industries, requiring manufacturers in transportation, healthcare, business and other industries to act as if they were high –tech businesses. So, not only must these companies become highly competent in software and electronics development, they must do so at the cutting edge, managing all of the current complexity that many high tech manufacturers face.

CIMdata develops the challenges and solutions for electronics and High Tech products development in this whitepaper. I believe you will find key information for improving your next product development.

We are excited to announce the release of a new update to My.SolidWorks. In this new version we’ve  included several improvements making it easier for you to use the site and search for answers to your questions.

3D ContentCentral Integration

We’ve redesigned the presentation of 3D ContentCentral models in My.SolidWorks. Users and vendors invest a lot of time and resources into making high quality CAD models available to you and we want to make sure these models are presented to you in the best possible way.

Enhanced Search

My.SolidWorks is all about helping you get the answers you need, to get the most out of SolidWorks.  So with every release of My.SolidWorks, we fine tune the search engine to give you better, more relevant results.  For example,  “What’s the best video card for SolidWorks?”

For this release, we’ve also added two new search sources:

  • You can search for 3D ContentCentral models directly from My.SolidWorks.
  • We’ve added our YouTube channels to the search results.

Online Training Manuals

Are you attending a SolidWorks training class? SolidWorks Training is introducing online copies of Training manuals via My.SolidWorks.  Users who attend a training class can now easily access an online copy of their training manual on a PC, tablet or smartphone.

More To Come

My.SolidWorks is an ongoing project, and we have much more in store.  Join us at SolidWorks World 2014, January 26th through 29th, at the San Diego Convention Center, and be among the first to learn about the next round of enhancements.  We hope to see you there!

Thank you for all of the feedback you’ve given us, so far.  We’re always listening and open to new ideas – so please keep it coming!
