Managing Product Development Complexity with Systems Engineering
Systems Engineering: A New Take
Engineering executives are challenged to deliver products on time with limited engineering resources, while improving overall quality. In order to achieve these goals, leaders must streamline the multi-disciplinary collaboration process across engineering teams. A systems engineering approach throughout product development can enable accurate verification and validation of all product requirements, creation of a flexible modular product architecture, and assurance of high product quality.
Winning new customers and establishing market leadership in an environment with increased product complexity requires producing the best product at the highest quality, faster than the competition. Best-in-class companies are taking a systems engineering approach to address complexity and develop superior products.
Delivering Intelligent and Complex Products
Systems engineering is a critical practice companies need to adopt to deliver intelligent products successfully as products in nearly every industry today are quickly becoming smart, interconnected, software-intensive systems of systems. Systems engineering much adapt to address the challenges that come with this level of complexity and overcome the barriers that prevents success.
Point of View
Innovation drives complexity as products become software intensive systems. In this IEEE Spectrum and PTC webcast, learn ways to rethink our systems engineering approach to combat complexity in your product development environment.
