For manufacturers, the changes here are huge.
Historically, they have lost control of their product once it leaves the factory. With smart connected products, manufacturers can now experience true closed-loop, product lifecycle management where they can track, manage and control product information at any phase of its lifecycle at any time and any place in the world.
This will allow manufacturers to:
- Create, analyse and validate the complete product definition across both mechanical and electrical disciplines
- Accelerate smart product innovation
- Extend capabilities within and alongside the product
- Deliver new value through integrated services throughout the lifecycle
