Smart, Connected Products: More Capable, More Complex
Systems engineers recognize the challenges that come with designing systems of smart, connected products. New capabilities and technologies are emerging to help systems engineers meet these growing challenges.
Smarter products demand a more holistic approach to the product lifecycle.
The introduction of smart, connected products has given manufacturers countless ways to add value, recover greater profit, and unlock new recurring service-based revenue streams.
These capabilities do not come without a cost. Greater complexity is required across the product lifecycle, and manufacturers now face a paradox.
Technological advances promise to:
- Lower costs
- Improve quality
- Streamline compliance
- Accelerate delivery
These advances incur complexity that threatens to raise cost, lower quality, reduce compliance, and extend development cycles.
