sys-eng-part1
The accelerating pace of change and complexity in the engineering of new products is no surprise to any engineering organization—and the high-level goals largely remain the same: pursue innovation, decrease cycle time and cost, while improving product quality.
sys-eng-part2
In Part I, we examined how developing a complimentary approach that capitalizes on the specific strengths of both Systems Engineering and Product Lifecycle Management systems can be the key to addressing the entire product development lifecycle. This second part focuses on how the holistic management of engineering information and processes, across the entire engineering lifecycle, can bring immediate benefits and also provide a foundation for continuous improvement - perhaps even transformation - of engineering.
Unlock Simulation's Value
The benefits and rationale for broader use of simulation for early design validation and reduced reliance on physical prototypes are well documented and an opportunity that manufacturers must pursue for both pragmatic and competitive reasons. As product complexity increases and businesses seek opportunities for growth, simulation moves to the forefront for strategic capabilities around the Digital Twin, for predictive maintenance and closed-loop development, as well as additive manufacturing, and generative design.
In the face of increasing product complexity, learn about a broader PLM vision that meets the challenges of today's Business of Engineering.
This paper discusses how a proper integration between system model authoring tools (e.g. SysML) and PLM, can interactively and in real-time deliver all relevant “P” information of the RFLP core used in trade studies and therefore save Systems Engineers a significant amount of time, eliminate incorrect assumptions, and maximize reuse.

With ever increasing product complexity, Requirements Management (RM) is critical to any complex system and/or product design. However, in many cases, requirements management is still done in siloed, standalone RM tools. And, the fact is, many design failures can be traced back to poor requirements management. This eBook explores the current challenges and risks companies face when it comes to requirements management and outlines the solutions and benefits offered by Aras’ Requirements Engineering (RE) application.

The rapidly growing complexity of products presents a significant challenge for manufacturers that are competing to bring the latest, most sophisticated, and connected products to market. This level of complexity has also introduced the need to take a systems level approach. Collaborating across disciplines—mechanical, electronic, and software—creating systems of systems. This eBook explores five concepts that will help engineering leads develop system-centric design processes, align teams, master product complexity, and drive innovation.
