The Role of a PLM Platform in Digitalization of Engineering

Ever increasing product complexity forces organizations to reimagine their approach to design—including new methodologies, design tools, and configuration management for every step of the lifecycle. This also must include the pivotal role of a PLM platform plays in enabling the system-centric view of a product: traceability of requirements, management of systems models, simulation, and cross-discipline collaboration.

Prof. Dr.-Ing Martin Eigner (GF), CEO and Senior Consultant at EIGNER Engineering Consult, and Mark Reisig, VP Product Marketing at Aras, discuss the role a PLM platform plays in Digitalization of Engineering.

Traditionally PLM systems were focused on management of mechanical designs. However, increasing complexity of products is changing that. Today engineering covers all the phases of product life cycle (from requirements through behavior, connectivity, architecture, individual design domains, service, operating, reuse, and recycling) and therefore we need to think of a design as a holistic system via a holistic approach to engineering. In fact, we need to think of a product as a system within systems—a system of systems. This is an evolution driven by the increasing product complexity towards what I call Systems Lifecycle Management, or SysLM, in contrast to Product Lifecycle Management, or PLM.

Systems Thinking and Design of Complex Products

This 30 minute demonstration applies Systems Thinking to making systems models a central part of the digital thread. It demonstrates a practical approach to establishing a custom digital thread that can expand and morph with the complexities of the products and systems that it represents, across all the above initiatives. The digital thread provides access to, and connects, data authored in best-of-class tools, and automatically exposes functionality appropriate to the task at hand—while maintaining traceability and the history of changes across the entire lifecycle.

Digital Transformation Primer

As organizations transform to leverage digital technologies, many experience barriers to entry and friction during implementation that inhibit success. Overcoming these obstacles requires a holistic approach driven by Systems Thinking. Technology is part of the solution…but true success is found by taking advantage of new techniques to achieve needed outcomes (and not simply making old processes faster).
