Combat Product Complexity with Systems Engineering - Part 1


Published on

Design complex systems successfully across multiple disciplines. This eBook explores the challenges and impact. Part 2 looks at the solution from the manufacturers and analysts point-of-view. View it now here:

A systems engineering approach is the recommend solution - researchers and leading companies agree. For more on systems engineering after you read the eBook - take a look at=>

  • Hi William, PTC works very closely with customers and analysts to be part of the solution. Shortly, we will be posting part 2 of our Systems Engineering series with a look to those very solutions.

  • Yes, but is PTC part of the solution, or part of the problem?

  • Maybe we could have a more complex interior of a john deere tractor
  • Not sure if we can use the 7 series image but it would be good. (use bitly link for analytics)
  • (use bitly link for analytics)
  • Tweet: Poorly managed product portfoliocan have critical implications to a company’s growth & profitability in new markets. (use bitly link for analytics)
  • Need coded link to resource center
  • Tweet should go forward this presentation
  • Combat Product Complexity with Systems Engineering - Part 1

    1. 1. 1
    2. 2. Dealing effectively with increased product complexities & demands? 2
    3. 3. What we‘ve learned from customers and research can help you. Here´s what we have to share. 3
    4. 4. Customers require a broader range and selection of products 4 What customers want… Products that are better, cheaper, and faster
    5. 5. Which today include an exponentially increasing amount of software 5
    6. 6. As well as, high levels of connectivity 6 With more… Intelligent products and the Internet-of-Things
    7. 7. with many more competitive pressures 7 and with it… Wider and deeper market reach
    8. 8. Therefore, leading to increased organizational complexity 8 Companies needing to expand horizons … more mergers & acquisitions
    9. 9. And inevitably more and stringent regulatory burdens 9 Federally mandated automotive recalls (NHTSA history): • 390 million cars, trucks, buses, recreatio nal vehicles, motorcycles, moped s • 66 million pieces of automotive equipment • 42 million child safety seats
    10. 10. The negative impact of COMPLEXITY 10
    11. 11. Collaboration is tough without well-defined processes and tools 11
    12. 12. 12 Related design artifacts can´t be reused across product lines which • Limits design reuse • Creates inconsistencies in product design • Introduces quality issues creating products that are more difficult & costly to maintain • Increases errors & redundancies because of lack of standardization with increased engineering, manufacturing and servicing costs
    13. 13. Disjointed processes make early design validation impossible, leading to costly late stage rework 13
    14. 14. 14 AND THEN... Complete product designs are not manufactured on time, affecting time-to-market and lost market opportunities
    15. 15. 15 If this is your experience, don´t despair THERE IS A SOLUTION. Watch out for Part 2.
