Four Ways IoT Introduces New Product Capabilities to Manufacturers

Posted by Atif Khan on 15-Mar-2018 16:11:00

Internet of Things (IoT) technology enables connected devices to autonomously communicating and sharing information. In the automotive industry, for example, this change means that it's increasingly common for vehicles to stream data about their location and environment while in operation.

4 Approaches to Adding New Product Capabilities

Posted by Andrew Hanson on 23-Feb-2018 10:30:00

Product connectivity, through the Internet of Things (IoT), offers many advantages to product designers and engineering. it enables us to relay information back and forth when the product is out in the field and it gives us more ways in which to add new capabilities for our products and solutions.

Four Product Design Trends That Will Shape 2018

Posted by Andrew Hanson on 16-Jan-2018 14:20:00

The Internet of Things (IoT) is already changing the way products are designed and developed. The ability of smart, connected products to feedback important information from the field directly to the manufacturer means that organisations can access more insight and data than ever before. Fundamentally, this helps to improve future product iterations and even new product lines.

The Benefits of Data-Driven Design

Posted by Emma Rudeck on 10-Nov-2017 16:30:00

Manufacturers are increasingly using performance-based analysis to provide real-world data on product performance from the field. Rather than making assumptions about performance, this approach offers unbridled access to how products operate once they leave the factory. But for manufacturers who are designing and iterating the next generation of smart, connected products, they need a more advanced approach: Data-Driven Design.

How the IoT Changes the Way Product Information is Shared

Posted by Emma Rudeck on 30-Aug-2017 15:00:00

The Internet of Things lifts the barrier to solving traditional problems, such as how products perform after shipping. We were so used to not having the data; we’ve created processes and ways of working that accept knowledge gap as inevitable.

Beginning the Digital Engineering Journey: How to Get Started

Posted by Emma Rudeck on 02-Aug-2017 15:00:00

To say connected products is a trend is an understatement. By the end of 2017, IDC estimates that 70% of discrete manufacturers will offer connected products.

This new breed of products, which have connectivity at their centre, is dramatically changing industries and competition as we know them today.

But, for organisations to be able to meet the challenge, they need all the key stakeholders in the product lifecycle to be aligned. At the same time, processes will need to be streamlined, so that organisations are in a better shape to react to customer feedback and the real-time data that connectivity provides.

The Role of IoT in Democratising Product Development

Posted by Emma Rudeck on 26-Jan-2017 12:00:00

In the world of product development, every stakeholder - be they a designer, a manager or within marketing, needs access to the most accurate, up-to-date information, if the organisation is to produce the best products on time and within budget.  Simply put, it’s a democracy. If just one stakeholder is unable to access a key element of the design or vital piece of feedback, the entire project may be put at the risk of increased lead times or, worse, failure upon release.
