Product structures and 3D product representations defined by engineering become the basis for manufacturing routings and manufacturing bills of materials (mBOMs), which are then used to manage shop floor activity and coordinate with enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. Shop floor information, such as the “as-built” BOM, can also be shared with PLM and ERP systems to complete the closed loop with engineering.   The complete view of a finished product can also be shared with a

Shifts in Payment Models for CAD Deployments


Given the recent desktop virtualization move for PTC Creo, it will be interesting to watch whether PTC will start offering subscriptions for some Creo apps (and Dassault Systèmes for SolidWorks). This is especially interesting in light of the recent move of Siemens Solid Edge to subscription licensing, and also since Autodesk is now offering its desktop and other design products on a pay-as-you-go

3d autocad viewers  In terms of comparing 3D computer-aided design (CAD) offerings, one can put SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor , Solid Edge, and even PTC CoCreate (now Creo/Elements Direct ) in the mid-market category, and Dassault CATIA, Siemens NX , and PTC Creo Parametric (formerly Pro/E ) in the large enterprise category. For the latter, I don’t see subscription or cloud models coming any time soon. The reason for Autodesk to do pay-as-you-go is that it fits with the vendor’s overall strategy in how it targets Read More

JDA FOCUS 2012: A Real-time Cloud to Serve the “Connected Consumer”


It seems JDA Software, a leading supply chain management (SCM) solution vendor, is just a short step away from being able to manage the entire SCM process. Focused on the retail industry, JDA helps retailers satisfy “connected, always-on” consumers. TEC principal analyst P.J.

What’s All This Benchmark Stuff, Anyway?


Vendors love to quote benchmarks in their product literature, press releases, and any place they think someone will use the numbers to make a buying decision. But what do the benchmarks mean, and which ones really matter?

Leveraging 3-D for Sales Automation


It’s no longer acceptable for salespeople to respond to customers’ inquiries with “I’ll get back to you.” In the time it takes to respond, a competitor with stronger product knowledge, customized proposals, or better pricing will win your business. Find out how to provide your salespeople with the ability to explain complex manufacturing processes and other key factors—before you lose your sales to your competitors.

Social PLM and CRM - Dassault Systèmes and Netvibes (Under the Exalead Brand)


The voice of the customer (VOC) concept has been around for decades, but the Internet and social media technologies have finally enabled it to its fullest degree. We have all heard of (and perhaps even contributed to) customers venting their anger or expressing their delight with some vendor’s service or some product’s characteristics and performance via online forums. A company’s ability to

Dassault’s Consumer Experience Management, Virtually Yours


Product lifecycle management (PLM) for retail and consumer packaged goods (CPG) is usually seen as a lighter version of more complex systems used by manufacturing companies to design sophisticated industrial products. Dassault Systèmes is one of the few vendors to offer PLM solutions that specifically address customer experience in retail. In this article, TEC analyst Gabriel Gheorghiu shows you how retailers can use the Dassault Systèmes solution for customer experience.

The very same product, presented in a different light or color, will have a different impact on the consumer. Part of that is already decided during product development, but not set in stone, which allows retailers to change the attributes of the product and create simulations for different scenarios. The fact that it’s done in 3D and that Read More

Can Your Product Development Move Closer to Consumers Now?


Half a year ago, I wrote about the need to include customer input in the design process in What Brings Customers Closer to Your Product Development?

When a prominent voice from the crowd is heard, retailers may adjust their buying, pricing, or promotion decisions promptly. But for manufacturers, Read More
