A new paradigm for product line diversity, variant management, and complexity management in manufacturing
Today’s manufacturers are under intense pressure to rapidly deliver increasingly complex products with sophisticated embedded software and electronics that must seamlessly interoperate with a growing array of mechanical parts. In tandem, manufacturers are faced with increased customer demand for ever-greater product line variation. The challenge is in finding new ways to engineer and manufacture these complex product lines more quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively – while maintaining rigorous quality standards.
