How to Improve Your Product Design Process with PTC Arbortext IsoDraw

Posted by Emma Rudeck on 13-Jan-2016 13:17:00

Ever wanted a better understanding in how your product design team operate? Do they tend to delay the overall manufacturing process, and therefore the time to market? It’s probably because they are in a long line of manufacturing functions, which could be described as a domino effect. Many organisations play this game and operate in this way; the next process can only start until the task before is successfully completed. Sounds a little old-fashioned, doesn’t it?
