White Papers

As competition heats up from OEMs and Owner/Operators who want to take more share of maintenance dollars, third-party MRO providers are facing increased pressure to deliver effective, low cost maintenance services.
The digital age is pressuring organizations to innovate and operate more efficiently to avoid disruption. Leading manufacturers recognize the need to transform their technology and processes to fully harness product data across the enterprise and across the product lifecycle. What’s clear is that they are unsure where to start.
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.
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.
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.
IDC researchers share opportunities and challenges of deploying different product life-cycle management (PLM) scenarios in the cloud. Included are specific approaches that the enterprise is wise to consider for PLM in the cloud.

eBooks

Third-Party MRO eBook
The Aviation Industry is booming as economies strengthen globally, resulting in increased passenger growth. This is causing large investments in new aircraft, and as fuel prices remain stable, legacy aircraft remain in operation to augment this increase in passenger traffic. All of this while the OEMs push to reduce a backlog of orders.
