On-Trend, On-Time Fashion Design Software
Siemens – Product innovation is critical in every industry, whether it’s automotive, aerospace and defense, consumer goods, or retail. But in the “fast fashion” retail market, innovation needs to happen constantly, as customer preferences and needs for apparel, footwear and accessory goods change. The challenge is keeping up with this demand, whether you discover it on a trip to Milan or through a social network, and filtering the best ideas into a pipeline of new styles that hits the market at the right time and in the right place.

Siemens PLM Software’s solutions for apparel, footwear and accessories provides buyers, designers, technical designers, merchandisers and senior management with a central location to capture new trends, collaborate across the supply chain, and effectively manage the fashion product development process, so your company always goes to market with the optimal assortment of new styles.

You are provided with fashion design software that incorporates decision support, integrated specification management, and value chain collaboration with secure, global access for your entire team. Manufacturers and their supply chain partners are able to collaborate to deliver new styles that customer want, when they want them, and have visibility to emerging risks and opportunities. This ultimately leads to efficiencies that deliver new fashions — whether clothing, footwear or accessories — to the market that are on-trend, and on-time. more>

Product Realization for Aerospace and Defense
Siemens – Aerospace companies need to win business in an environment that is increasingly competitive, both locally and globally. This requires proving your ability to meet target dates and costs in production while delivering products that meet customer requirements.

Increasing demand in some sectors, such as commercial aircraft, drives a requirement for higher levels of productivity. You have to take advantage of new materials and processes to build the most competitive products.

Efficient manufacturing within budget and schedule targets is an operational imperative for successful aerospace and defense companies. “Program Execution Excellence” is the Siemens PLM Software perspective on how leading aerospace and defense companies can effectively deliver consistent execution with customers and their suppliers during product realization. more>

Closed Loop Quality Management for Electronics
Siemens – Optimize and simplify business processes by standardizing and unifying quality related processes and workflows throughout your entire organization.

Quality planning begins during the engineering and design process of your product, and continuous with quality control during the manufacturing of the product.

With the collection of quality data from design and production you are able to initiate the problem solving process and improve your product and your manufacturing processes continuously and sustainably.

The Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle describes the four phases of the continuous improvement process (CIP) and is the basis for the Siemens PLM quality philosophy. more>

What is Synchronous Technology?
Siemens – Synchronous technology enables you to rapidly create new concept designs, easily respond to change requests, and make simultaneous updates to multiple parts within an assembly. Re-using designs, working with imported data, making changes…synchronous technology helps you do the things you do all the time—faster and easier.

Synchronous technology allows you to rapidly create new concept designs, easily respond to change requests, and make simultaneous updates to multiple parts within an assembly. With this design flexibility, you can eliminate cumbersome preplanning and avoid feature failures, rebuild issues, and time-consuming rework. The power of synchronous technology also allows you to treat multi-CAD data just like native files, supporting seamless collaboration with suppliers and partners. more (pdf)> eBook

Laboratory Management
Siemens – Consumer interest in the quality of products has increased drastically, including how a product might affect consumer health, the demand for high quality ingredients, the quality production processes and sustainability. Government and non-government organizations are responding with new regulations. The digitalization of laboratory processes will ensure the verification and quality of product and production and will provide companies the ability to accelerate new product introduction.

Laboratories worldwide are under enormous pressure to do increasingly more work with fewer employees and at lower cost. This situation is emphasized by the fact that regulations are becoming more complex and stringent. Products released on the market need to be labeled as safe for human consumption and consumers have high expectations for the products they consume.

Quality Control (QC) labs have to ensure overall product conformity and quality at the lowest cost. R&D labs are the source of innovation in a company and support the acceleration of new product introductions. Product quality data needs to be correct, secure and available at any time. more>

Automotive Software Development
Siemens – Embedded software is driving remarkable new business opportunities in the automotive industry and fueling innovation in connectivity, electrification, and autonomous vehicle development.

However, managing automotive software development complexity is a big challenge. The complexity is driven by the difference between mechanical and software system product development approaches. Most automotive programs are managed in a three- to five-year cycle.

They follow a gate-based development paradigm with strict checkpoints and certifications. Software development, on the other hand, is incredibly fast paced, as it follows agile processes where collaboration and rapid innovation is key.

Typically, development of mechanical and electrical systems are managed within product lifecycle management (PLM) tools, whereas software development is managed with application lifecycle management (ALM) tools. The challenge is to combine these two inherently different product development methodologies. Software and hardware engineers working on their respective ALM and PLM applications must be able to access information across all the lifecycle related processes.

Hardware and software integration and co-development is a major challenge and a key contributor to quality issues, launch delays, and recall related penalties. more>

Medical Equipment Design and Development Solutions
Siemens – Medical instrument and equipment companies must carefully examine all of their development projects to ensure that product development portfolios make the best use of people, time and money. Too often, companies find their portfolio is not aligned with the company growth strategy, they have limited resources for the right projects, or they continue to invest in low-priority projects. The traditional budgeting process consumes 20 to 30 percent of management’s time, and does not provide executives with ongoing visibility into a project portfolio or support agile decision-making.

Siemens PLM Software’s solutions for portfolio, program and project management give you a way to compare return on investment (ROI), cost, resources and project schedules so you can make informed decisions, keep track of projects and compare them against plans.

High-quality medical instrument and equipment design is important to ensure functionality, quality and aesthetics. Engineers need the right tools to develop new products that reduce cost, meet requirements, and increase innovation.

Knowledge is core to the success of a medical instrument and equipment company. Companies that can manage change and re-use that knowledge are more successful in this competitive industry. A strong and flexible product lifecycle management (PLM) backbone is vital to managing product knowledge. more>

Multi-Discipline Data Management for Electronics & Semiconductors
Siemens – Today’s electronic devices are a synthesis of multiple designs—mechanical, electrical, electronics, embedded software and application software.

In addition, because of rapid development, many hardware features remain unexplored and undermanaged resulting in sub-optimal integration between hardware and software. The disadvantages of operating in different single-discipline platforms and the increasing role of global suppliers in early stages of design are driving engineering organizations to invest in multi-domain integration strategies to ensure the system works flawlessly.

Siemens PLM Software offers a multi-disciplinary approach to engineering lifecycle management that leverages integrated requirements management, secure supplier collaboration, and a single harmonized design, verification and testing environment across multiple engineering platforms. more>
