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.

successful product launches  they can deliver similar successful outcomes. In the mid-1990s, thanks to the information technology (IT) revolution driven by the Internet and World Wide Web, the concept of using remote, low-cost resources to develop software and maintain information systems was launched. For the first time, software applications were available to make the work-product digital, and the Internet allowed this digital work-product to be instantaneously portable to nearly anywhere in the world. With these important Read More

New Product Development and Introduction (NPDI)


New product development and introduction (NPDI) is probably the most important process for many companies, but also one of the least understood. While NPDI is responsible for revenues, few companies assign an owner for the whole process. Instead, it is usually driven through a series of functional “silos,” causing delay—and the loss of the original market requirements.

In between are many activities to define the requirements, develop and test a product concept, fully define and develop the product, source for suppliers involved, plan the manufacturing and supply chain, and prepare marketing programs. On top of that, it's about defining the product strategy, managing the overall product program, and monitoring all the projects and activities needed to drive the NPDI process. Most functional areas of the company get Read More

From Idea to Market-ready Product in Record Time


The odds against successful product innovation are long. New products need to win over consumers and convince retailers—a challenging task for many reasons, including saturated markets, a growing variety of products and brands, and shorter product life cycles. To shorten time to market, companies need to integrate all development-related areas, within a single sphere of visibility and influence.

Every year, the consumer products industry enters 25,000 to 30,000 new products in the race to win customer favor. More than 60% of these fail, according to the results of a study by the German market research institute Gesellschaft fr Konsumforschung. Why? Companies have less and less time to conquer the market and achieve a return on their investment because ideas are copied quickly and me-too products and store brands infiltrate the Read More

Architecting SANs for Successful Deployments


The first step to a successful storage area network (SAN) implementation is preplanning. Architecting a SAN not only helps solve issues of storage consolidation, it facilitates day-to-day data center support and maintenance. A SAN investment should save support dollars, not require additional support resources. With a sound implementation strategy, costly upgrades—and many headaches—can be avoided.

Great Product: Too Bad The Architecture Doesn’t Fit


During the process of product selection a great deal of attention is given to the functional capabilities of the software being evaluated. While this aspect is obviously important, ignoring the technical mechanisms by which the software actually operates can be fatal to a project. In this document we explain how to avoid the pitfalls.
