The Five Degrees of Product Complexity

Jim Brown presents on this webcast sponsored by Siemens PLM. The presentation examines how manufacturers address the five critical dimensions of product complexity to achieve maximum profitability, and how Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions help manage these five dimensions of product complexity on an enterprise scale, resulting in greater efficiency and better products. Complexities addressed

Developing Sofware-Intensive Products

Perspective: Developing Software-Intensive Products: Addressing the Innovation-Complexity Conundrum presents survey data and analysis to help manufacturers understand the benefits and challenges of developing products that derive a significant amount of their capabilities from software. The terms “embedded software” and “mechatronics” really don’t describe the varied uses of software in today’s products from automobiles to appliances.

Software Intensive Product Survey says More Software in Products means More Problems

A quick peek into some research on how manufacturers can achieve the positive business benefits of software-intensive products without suffering the common, negative challenges and business impacts resulting from increased product development complexity. The report, Tech-Clarity Perspective: Developing Software-Intensive Product: Addressing the Innovation-Complexity Conundrum, highlights the results of a survey of over 100 manufacturers to

Systems and Software Driven Innovation

Issue in Focus: Systems and Software Driven Innovation – Complexity and Opportunity in the Mechatronic Era describes the fundamental shift to increased software and electronics in traditionally mechanical products, sometimes known as “mechatronics.” The report explains the need to manage the resulting design complexity and how to take advantage of the opportunities offered by systems

Mechatronics: Driving Product Innovation with Embedded Software

A quick peek into some research on … designing mechatronic products. The research, Tech-Clarity’s Issue in Focus: Systems and Software Driven Innovation: Complexity and Opportunity in the Mechatronic Era covers both sides of the software driven products coin – the complexity it places on engineering and product development teams and the opportunity it offers to

The Five Dimensions of Product Complexity

Insight: The Five Dimensions of Product Complexity – Managing Complexity across the Product Lifecycle highlights the trend toward increased product complexity and how it has made developing profitable products more difficult. Details the five dimensions and discusses how PLM software helps manage the complexity on an enterprise scale, helping manufacturers achieve greater efficiency and better
