Digtal Innovation Strategies (PLM, MBE)

On the competitive battlefield, an innovation strategy is like a decision to attack. Each movement creates the opportunity for a response. Each innovation strategy has included within it the seeds of its own destruction. This implies that strategies should be living concepts that link markets, organizational capabilities, business objectives, and stakeholder desires?

Strategy Execution Overview

We work with our clients to develop innovation strategies that increase capability maturity to enable measurable improvements in; Portfolio Planning & Management, Requirements Management, Systems Engineering, Design Engineering, CAD/Solid Modeling, Model-based Design (MBD), Model-based Enyetrprise (MBE), CAE, Core Product Data Management (Part, Doc, Bom, Change), and the dissemination/integration of Product Data through the internal and external Supply Chain

We apply state of the art methods, tools, and competitive metrics to translate high-level business objectives into specific innovation goals and actionable roadmaps that drive successful execution.

Through a holistic approach encompassing an analysis of Policy & Procedure, Jobs & Organizational Structures, Management & Measurement Techniques, Values & Beliefs, and your Technical Infrastructures, we derive a systemic understanding of your whole innovation enterprise.

Finally, through an alignment phase we derive specific tactics to improve the whole enterprise innovation environment which align to your high-level business objectives and drive measurable improvement in critical operational metrics

PLM Strategy (Foundational to the Digital Enterprise)

A Product Lifecycle Management Strategy (PLM Strategy) is foundational to the optimization of your Digital Enterprise. Virtually every downstream process & system are enabled by Product Data which originates in the Product Development systems and processes. A PLM Strategy which is aligned to state of the art technology and the demands of a Global Supply Chain & Marketplace is therefore an Imperative. When was the last time your PLM Strategy was refreshed and re-aligned?


MBE Strategy (Foundational to the Digital Enterprise)

Enabling the Digital Twin and optimizing the feeds from Product Development in to the Digital Enterprise requires a conversion from 2D Data to 3D Solid Modeling and the elimination (over time) of the 2D Drawing from all Supply Chain Processes. This conversion process, while complex and costly, has proven to deliver a very high and measurable ROI. The Journey to a Model-based Enterprise however will take two to five years depending upon the breadth of scope and resources you can apply. It requires a Phased Implementation, multiple application technologies, and a substantial set of technical application integrations. Because of its complexity and the large transition to new more higjhly automated ways of working, it is critical to derive an MBE Strategy & Roadmap to direct your Journey
