Fujitsu: Improved management process thanks to an efficient reuse of requirements and traceability

By Eric

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

By Eric

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.

 

Bosch Improves Engineering Coordination to Achieve Product Leadership

By Eric

You could say the library is the brain of our development. All the information our developers need for their work is stored centrally, so they know, for instance, whether they can use a component for a new development or when it has been discontinued

explains Lutz Napiwotzky, responsible for Engineering Applications Corporate IT at Bosch.

When the Bosch Group’s Automotive Technology Division, one of the world’s leading suppliers to the automotive industry, analyzed their development processes, they quickly identified areas for improvement, including consistent data management. Each division structured data differently and stored it in different systems. As a result, tasks like tracing component use were inefficient and sometimes impossible. The company really wanted to increase the efficiency of these processes by simplifying and standardizing them. The only solution for Bosch was to install a component supplier management solution.

After implementing Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform Bosch engineers understand exactly which components were installed in which devices, including all configuration and material information. In particular, the component library structuring and versioning capabilities bring significant value to the Stuttgart-based company.
