Infographic: Design management for industrial machinery

August 16, 2016

Major trends in the Industrial Machinery industry — such as increasing customization, regulatory pressures, and the need for smarter machines — are all driving more complex machinery requirements.

  • Customization: Globalization will result in millions of new customers from regions requiring diverse features and pricing. (Source: Joint Research Council Foresight Study, European Commission)
  • Regulatory pressures: The average number of major regulations passed per year has doubled since 2000. (Source: NERA Economic Consulting)
  • Need for smarter machines: From 1970-2010, the amount of software content in machines increased 45%. (Source: VDMA)

IN THIS INFOGRAPHIC, we introduce you to these major trends, and provide a clear understanding of what you can do about them, and how we can help address these challenges.

With design management, you can use product data management (PDM) to centrally manage mechanical, electrical, and software specifications, and information for the entire development team, and streamline your design management.
