Product data is often stored in various enterprise systems, leading to several negative consequences for users. Either they duplicate work because they don’t realize data already exists, or they lose time trying to compare it across systems for accuracy and consistency.
A digital product definition is an integrated system(s) of record with the most relevant, current product information—i.e. mechanical, electrical, and software components. Stakeholders across the development process can use it to fit their unique needs.
A digital product definition:
Reduces engineering hours and eliminates errors early
Improves first pass yields in manufacturing
Improves design reuse and reduces duplicative work
