Integrating Engineering and Manufacturing

With the emergence of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), companies with complex products are looking for better ways to integrate their manufacturing operations. But with today’s disconnected systems, authoring and reconciling MBOMs, process plans and work instructions, and ensuring synchronization with evolving product designs can be time-consuming and error-prone.
