The world we know it is changing at an exponential rate. Due to the advent of digital technology, ever-changing consumer demands are resulting in more complex products. In turn, evolving product complexity has translated into machine complexity. As a result, machine builders are fighting to stay competitive against digital, global manufacturers while trying to become more agile. Undoubtedly, this has put immense pressure to reduce margins and overdeliver on projects just to stay afloat.
But that doesn’t have to be the case.
Digital technology, multi-disciplinary engineering, and collaborative design can help machine builders embrace machine complexity and deliver machines faster. Undoubtedly, this transformation is well underway for large machine builders. Whereas for small to medium-sized machine builders the answer isn’t so simple. Specifically, they don’t need a major overhaul. They want to get control of their project data using their existing tools.
