Increasing Equipment Complexity.
Industrial manufacturing is growing more complex. Advanced sensors, IoT devices, and machine intelligence provide factories with new streams of data that they can use to optimize existing processes and flexibly reassign equipment. Capturing this data empowers customers and provides manufacturers with valuable insights for designing maintenance models and equipment-as-a-service.
Designing for Configurability.
Customers want a product as unique as their business. With CAE software, manufacturing companies can design and model equipment with configurability baked in, allowing them to offer a range of options to their customers. Companies can adapt to specific requirements while ensuring that they are managing resources efficiently.
Supply Chain Transparency, Flexible Production.
Success hinges on the ability to adapt to changing circumstances. Integration within companies and transparency throughout the supply chain will keep the industrial equipment design sector prepared for market shifts. CATI helps companies connect with their suppliers and customers via the collaboration capabilities of PLM software, keeping them informed and agile.
Agility through Communication.
Collaboration drives innovation, and collaboration works best when everyone has the same information. CAE software provides a single source of truth with its Virtual Twin capabilities, breaking down silos and ensuring that everyone is up to date. Efficient integration across teams means that when an opportunity arises, companies can pivot quickly to seize it.
Sustainability by Design.
Manufacturing safety regulations and government guidelines on environmental sustainability are in a period of flux. At the same time, communities are more closely examining their relationships with manufacturing. Companies need data to analyze their footprint, and design capabilities that emphasize sustainable manufacturing throughout, minimizing the risk from regulatory changes.
