Why digital engineering?

null

Digital engineering enables you to improve product designs, quality, and manufacturability, all while establishing the foundation for a digital thread that improves cross-functional collaboration by making authoritative product data accessible across the enterprise. Whether your company uses an engineer-to-order, configure-to-order, assemble-to-order or assemble-to-stock strategy—digital engineering provides the most efficient and cost-effective way to meet demand, drive collaborative design, and deliver continuous improvement for your physical products.
