The digital revolution is disrupting media, finance, consumer products, healthcare, and other sectors. With the advancements in areas such as artificial intelligence, automation, additive technology and Internet of Things (IoT), digitization is now breaching the walls of manufacturing engineering. Unleashing innovation it is sure to transform every point in the value chain and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), from R&D, supply chain, the operation to marketing, sales, and service. It comes as no surprise, then, that manufacturers like you are waking up to the opportunities and challenges of digitisation. At this point, it is necessary to see how leading manufacturers are responding to digital with innovative manufacturing engineering for the entire product lifecycle management.
Addressing challenges with Manufacturing Engineering
As manufacturers digitize their design and engineering processes to meet the innovation challenges, they now face making their manufacturing engineering equally competitive. It has become imperative for companies to create new products that are ‘manufacturing ready’ before proceeding to production, and at the same time further reducing time-to-market, boost product quality across volumes and maximize the ROI. However, the mainstream environment relies in creating expensive physical prototypes. The ultimate goal of manufacturing engineering, then, is to make sure that “100% manufacturing ready” becomes a standard design and engineering deliverable. The Product Lifecycle Management approach to the entire design-manufacture-market strategy offers a radical solution to the quality, cost and time pressures of modern production applications.
Digital manufacturing as part of the Product Lifecycle Management strategy can revolutionize the product lifecycle by creating new value and innovation at each stage of the process. With PLM, digital products exist as rich information circulating in a highly collaborative work environment. Virtual design and engineering mockups can be used not just to craft a physical object, but to define, plan, and validate the way products are manufactured. Design and manufacturing will be able to collaborate simultaneously through product lifecycle management in a concurrent engineering environment, allowing manufacturing engineering to be involved early in the product design stage to ensure manufacturing readiness.
