Aerospace and Defense companies delivering complex products in competitive markets must overcome many challenges to manage requirements throughout the product lifecycle. Among the most difficult challenges are integrating complex systems engineering processes, promoting collaboration among multiple engineering disciplines and enabling the sharing of intellectual property within globally dispersed teams.
Companies seeking a way to efficiently manage product requirements can leverage a comprehensive product lifecycle management (PLM) solution to:
• Effectively reuse intellectual property to reduce time to market
• Increase product innovation
• Improve overall traceability of requirements throughout the product lifecycle
This paper will highlight the criteria needed for a comprehensive requirements management solution that incorporates PLM to offer customers a scalable, enterprise-grade solution.
The business models of Aerospace and Defense manufacturers often derive revenue from a number of sources including aircraft and completions as well as aftermarket business. The shop floor affects two of these key sources of revenue. In order to grow the business organically, while maintaining margins, the enterprise needs to deliver more, through the implementation of unprecedented levels of flexible production.

In February 2004, the FDA issued a Draft Guidance requiring the electronic submission of labeling content to be provided in an XML-based format called Structured Product Labeling (SPL). The purpose of this white paper is for the reader to gain an understanding and prepare for the FDA's new electronic labeling submission standard.
Until recently, many high-tech manufacturers – especially small and medium-sized businesses – have been able to survive by applying 80% of their operational focus to 20% or less of their critical customers and suppliers. That was then. The new mandate from channel masters is for more intense, collaborative relationships with fewer suppliers.
If you're a big fish in a small pond, you're probably one of the leaders in the market space you've defined as your pond. Conversely, if you're a small fish in a big pond, you're probably trying to be too many things to too many people, which dilutes your strengths and takes away any competitive advantage you might have. Which category do you fall into?
With leading brands including Landliebe and Mona, Campina supplies milk, cheese, butter, desserts, yogurt and all kinds of dairy drinks in over 130 countries. Historically, each of these production and sales centers operated on an independent basis. While this allowed for a degree of localized efficiency, it presented a range of issues and potential fault lines which became exacerbated as the company, and the demands of its consumer grew.
Manufacturing evolved from manual to automated, ad hoc to repeatable. From art to science. Manufacturing has been forced to "industrialize." Aiding in the effort are product lifecycle and supply chain management tools for streamlining manufacturing process and linking together previously isolated stages in the value chain.

Hardware technology doesn’t last forever. It has a lifecycle, a measurable beginning and end to its productivity and value. IT is tasked with optimizing the PC lifecycle while driving strategic breakthroughs for their organization. However, the high cost and complexity of PC management leaves IT little time for innovation.
We offer flexible financing options that help assure IT will always have everything they need, when they need it, to keep end users engaged and productive. Learn more about Dell solutions powered by Intel®.
The concept of a virtual, digital equivalent to a physical product or the Digital Twin was introduced in 2003 at a University of Michigan Executive Course on Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) taught by Dr. Michael Grieves. In light of these advances, it is timely to explore how the Digital Twin can move from an interesting and potentially useful concept that aids in understanding the relationship between a physical product and its underlying information to a critical component of an enterprise-wide closed-loop product lifecycle.
Understand how focusing on the connection between physical product and virtual product will improve productivity, uniformity of production, and ensure the highest quality products.
Rapid manufacturing's benefits extend far beyond the upfront savings on tooling. Discover how it will improve your operations, sales and profits and why it is heralded as the next industrial revolution. In the first of a series, you will discover the benefits of the freedom to redesign your products at any stage in the life cycle.
Adhering to the constraints and limiting design freedoms are necessary for conventional manufacturing processes. Rapid manufacturing eliminates all of the design constraints imposed by conventional manufacturing methods. It offers designers and engineers an unprecedented freedom to design a product and its components exclusively for the desired form, fit and function.
