Complex digitalization landscape for manufacturing companies
For over a century success of manufacturing companies has been driven by product-related technological advancements and production line optimization. New process-related technologies are altering the path to success at an accelerated pace. Companies are moving into a new game they are not used to playing.
Several studies from the likes of IDC Nordic and PWC reveal that two of the top priorities for manufacturing companies are innovation and customer proximity.
Most companies understand that adapting and transforming their business model is vital for long-term success. However, they are burdened with evaluating the abundance of digitalization alternatives and an environment full of acronyms.
PLM Group offers extensive 3D product development solutions to enable digitalization and innovation. With knowledge, software solutions, and inspiration we empower people and manufacturing companies to innovate. We can help you to navigate the complex digitalization landscape.
Virtual twins to accelerate development processes
All products start as an idea, which leads to a virtual and a physical product – virtual twins are created in 3D.
Our product development solutions from Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS provide best-in-class 3D modeling, simulation, product data management (PDM), and additive manufacturing solutions in one, connected universe.
All the tools you need are integrated into a secure environment. Tools to sketch, detail, design and simulate are in the same ecosystem as those to socialize, manage, engineer, and iterate. They are combined with collaborative tools and even issue factory-ready manufacturing instructions. It’s the ultimate customizable toolbox.
This offers an accelerated development process for manufacturing companies and allows new products to get to market faster.
Digital continuity and Product Lifecycle Management – cloud collaboration of product data
Two major challenges manufacturing companies are facing are a product-related collaboration with suppliers and customers, and not having the time for innovation.
3DEXPERIENCE from Dassault Systemes is a SaaS-based business platform connecting people, ideas, product data, and solutions in a single collaborative and interactive cloud environment.
Everyone (including customers and suppliers) involved in innovation projects can easily interact to imagine, design, simulate and deliver differentiated customer experiences.
Increased collaboration, improved execution, and accelerated innovation help manufacturing companies grow and become more profitable.
Additive manufacturing – Innovation opportunities from virtual to physical products
Value-added manufacturing technology must be flexible. Additive manufacturing contributes to the innovation of completely new products while reducing lead times and costs throughout a company’s value chain.
Manufacturing companies can leverage additive manufacturing to find new business opportunities and lower the cost of operations. We guide additive manufacturing incorporation by utilizing our industry know-how — gathered from clients across the Nordic manufacturing industry.
Innovation leading to sustainable business models
Innovation can take the form of incremental improvement and adaptation of existing products and processes. It can also encompass radical transformation with completely new business models and offers.
External innovation covers the development of product and service offers. It’s also how customers experience interactions with the company and its products. Internal innovation covers the organizational structure, internal processes, and how the company makes money.
With our three offers — product development solutions, additive manufacturing, and our digital 3D ecosystem — manufacturing companies facilitate digital collaboration and can transform existing business models into sustainable ones.
