The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is an open architecture that can customize and integrate customer data in a single environment—broadening the collaborative capabilities of ENOVIA. Together, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and ENOVIA enable effective collaboration that drives successful product innovation.
However, product innovation is only half the equation. Sustainable profitable growth represents the other half. Developing the right product at the right time and at the right price is at the core of delivering sustainable business value. As a business experience platform, 3DEXPERIENCE, orchestrates the various ENOVIA capabilities from product inception to launch.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is the bridge between ENOVIA capabilities and the innovators. ENOVIA capabilities such as Product Planning and Management use “invisible governance” to facilitate decision-making in real-time. Strategic Customer Relationships introduces consumer preferences upfront in the design process, leading to “co-creation.” Collaborative partnering with strategic suppliers helps in virtually eliminating supplier issues in the product development process. Quality and Compliance are the foundation for issue prevention, a key factor in any successful global product launch. Lastly, IP Classification and Security serve as the processes used to guard a company’s intellectual property and manage that information properly for a global and simultaneous global product launches.
Product Planning and Program Management
Imagine your company has 20 concurrent projects, 1500 engineers and 150 suppliers. Meanwhile, your engineers are introducing 5000 new parts per year! With Product Planning and Program Management solutions from ENOVIA, clients can precisely orchestrate even the most complex of processes.
Global Product Development
In this new age of manufacturing, it’s no surprise that news about your product launch reaches consumers across the globe instantaneously. However, if the new product is not immediately available in each region, consumers quickly move on to other alternatives. Gone are the days when a company could launch a product first in the developed market and then subsequently launch the product in the developing world. A well-executed global launch is fast becoming a business imperative to achieving a higher return on investment.
Quality and Compliance Management
Today, effective quality practices have involved formalizing a process after a quality issue has been found or raised. These issues come from the field, or from the development and launch process itself. Some solutions focus on the various tools for quality issue prevention, such as Quality Functional Deployment (QFD), Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA), etc. These disciplines and processes have been touted as the mechanism for issue prevention and quality improvement for years.
IP Classification and Protection
Companies are facing complexity from many areas during the development and launch of complex products and services. Market opportunities exist for good ideas, but they may be in many locations, and they may involve variations to serve those markets. In addition, IP is being created that captures the product complexity, including specifications, bills-of-materials, requirements, geometry, models, etc. Finally, the processes that will be used to define, model and execute will need to be properly managed in order to launch the products globally and simultaneously. All of this intellectual property (IP) is what drives the firm’s competitive advantage in the market. Therefore the firm’s ability to leverage and protect this IP without exceptions is critical to the company’s short-term and long-term success.
Strategic Customer Relationship Management
In the Experience Economy, customers have transformed to take a more active role in communicating their requirements and preferences for the products that they ultimately purchase. This phenomenon requires the ability to manage customer requirements not as an afterthought, but as an inherent part of the product development process. The ENOVIA requirements-driven systems engineering approach to developing products with the customer’s desired experiences is visible to all stakeholders involved.
Strategic Supplier Relationship
In this new era of manufacturing, your suppliers are a critical component of the value chain. Successful companies have realized the importance of nurturing suppliers such that the relationships go beyond vendor-OEM associations to collaborative partnering. ENOVIA for Supply Chain users allows companies to leverage supply chain capabilities throughout the product lifecycle and make their suppliers an integral part of product development. Supply Chain Network capabilities allow companies to involve supply chain employees securely in the entire product lifecycle.
