Manufacturers around the world are accelerating their responses to key societal, technological, and customer trends. Manufacturers must deal with ever-expanding complexity in their businesses. Customers are demanding products and solutions tailored to their unique needs that are smarter, more connected, and more eco-friendly, as well as often being able to operate autonomously. These products and systems are becoming more complex, part of a “system of systems” ecosystem, with functionality and differentiation now being driven by software and electronics. This necessitates more intelligent product development and production environments as well as expanding in- service management requirements.
