The Increasing Importance of Requirements for Industrial Equipment Companies

By Diana

A happy customer is a loyal customer

We always say that “customer is king” and with the current economic crisis, this statement has never been so true.
In highly competitive markets like the Industrial Equipment industry, in which customers do not renew their material every week, it becomes critical to gain and maintain customer loyalty to create a long term relationship.

Will a product that is deemed “good” for one customer be good for all of them?
Of course not – and this is where requirements come into play. Each customer is different, depending on the market they serve,, the country they come from, the strategy they follow.

Increasing Industry Efficiency With Digital Configuration Multi-Product Assemblies

Since 1988, building product manufacturers in the European Union have been working to comply with the “Construction Products Directive” (CPD), a piece of landmark legislation that “aims to ensure the free movement of all construction products by introducing a common technical language” to describe and define product characteristics.

Those could include mechanical strength, fire resistance, heat retention, or any of a wide range of other properties critical to a product’s installed performance.

Saint-Gobain

Saint-Gobain is a building product manufacturer headquartered in France with a global presence in over 55 countries. They manufacture a broad range of products, including insulation, gypsum, exterior products, pipe and industrial mortars, as well as a number of prefabricated assemblies involving multiple products.

According to Laurent Ortas, head of new construction technologies, and Francois Pincemin, head of constructive solutions and prefabrication, the company has long been committed to supporting the CPD and is now leveraging that platform to support their leadership role in the emerging trend of highly efficient model-based design, fabrication and construction.
