As products become more complex, managing product models become more and more challenging and time consuming.
The confluence of mechanical, electronic, and the rapidly growing role of software components, is placing increased pressure on traditional product models when it comes to product changes.
By moving from a monolithic product model to a component-based product model you can break down a product by discipline, module, or both, in order to accelerate the versioning process of changes with fewer mistakes and redundant iterations.
In this Tech Talk, Heiko Markgraf, Manager, Technical Presales Engineer at Configit, explains how component modeling works and why manufacturers are increasingly moving to this product modeling framework.
Heiko discusses the benefits of a component modeling approach, including:
- Better alignment between disciplines
- Reuse of modules across different products
- Streamlined version management
- Customer update simplification
