9 Ways to Drive Down Product Development Costs in a Tough Economy


As consumer demand drops, many companies are being forced to lay off staff. That might help in the short term, but those companies still have to keep operations going, reduce costs, keep profits up, and produce high-quality products—only now with far fewer people. This in-depth guide offers nine product development strategies for your company to weather this downturn and prepare for the eventual economic rebound.

Gaining Competitive Advantage through Global Product Development


Product development is a mission-critical process. And it can also be very expensive. But thanks to modern computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided engineering (CAE), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and product lifecycle management (PLM) systems, many manufacturing companies now have the tools that allow better alignment of cost and value-add. This is what’s referred to as “global product development.” Learn more.

Should North Americans Send More Software Development Work to China?


This article discusses the risks and opportunities related to outsourcing software development to China. It concludes that China, as an outsourcing destination, has different risk exposures in comparison with India. However, going to China may also bring opportunities considering the pressure of further cost reduction that North Americans are facing and the booming domestic demands of the Chinese market.

leader development  to Liu Jiren, the leader of Neusoft (one of the largest software outsourcing providers in China), the software industry in China and India are about the same size in terms of total revenue, but their revenue structures are very different. About 90% of China''s software revenue comes from the domestic market, but India only receives about 10%–20% from its home market [4] . This means that China has strong software development forces. Chinese software developers just haven''t done outsourcing as much as Read More

Dassault Systèmes-Expanding Product Development and the 3D Experience


The Dassault Systèmes vision is to enable everyone—from product designers, engineers, and suppliers to end users and their respective communities—to create, share, and experience the three-dimensional virtual world, thereby maximizing the value of their intellectual property and digital assets. In this article, TEC principal analyst P.J.

Business-driven Software Development


Today’s software developers face requirements that were previously unknown in the industry. Businesses now demand reduced time-to-market, lower costs, and greater stability. And although collaboration is key to addressing these issues, it’s not always as easy as it sounds. Thus, an automated change management system can help you increase the predictability, reliability, and speed of the software development cycle.

The Core 4: Ways to Cultivate Everyday Career Development


Development drives engagement, which in turn inspires motivation, effort, and smarter thinking—keys to competitive edge and organizational longevity. Yet negative myths about development—it takes too much time, employees are responsible for their own growth—often keep career development from being a first-line priority for managers.

In today’s workplace, if your employees aren’t growing, they’re going. That means finding a new job or, worse, disengaging. How can your organization make sure your employees are continually growing? Learn about four core ways to easily integrate career development into everyday activities.

The New Product Development Paradigm Led by Simulation and Testing


Development and problem solving happens too often at the testing stage, once product prototypes have been built. This can be costly, both in terms of the time and the resources expended. Computer-aided design (CAD) and exercises (CAE) can address your concerns about product safety and performance, as well as augment your return on investment (ROI). Shift your product development paradigm with digital engineering tools.

Key Metrics for Monitoring New Product Development


Since our research-driven beginnings, Johnson & Johnson Advanced Sterilization Products (ASP) has continually improved the new product development (NPD) process. Detailed process mapping has revealed three tiers of business metrics, starting with drivers and moving up through execution metrics to business performance metrics. When driver metrics improves, so does business performance. Six Sigma tools helps identify specific metrics at all tiers and the causality linkages among them. Each NPD process step at ASP results in a deliverable, and each deliverable relates to a trade-off triangle (cost-time-resources) and, ultimately, to investment dollars. To track performance, ASP calculates how actual NPD decisions and what-if scenarios affect deliverables, alter investment triangles, and thereby influence business results. ASP uses similar process and tools, including the investment triangles and Six Sigma QFD, to make idea management decisions. The IDweb real-time software environment enables both the NPD and idea management processes at ASP. By deploying the strategic planning, idea management, portfolio and pipeline management, process management, and resource management modules of IDweb, ASP has increased throughput by 20 percent and reduced cycle time by 40 percent.
