Manufacturing best practices for managing complexity

Heavy equipment complexity puts significant pressure on manufacturing teams, especially when it comes to the production of highly configurable machines. It can be very difficult to balance the pulls of industry and market forces like modernization, globalization and sustainability. But there’s a road map to lead you through. Read this ebook to discover how you can deploy best practices for complexity management and why collaboration is key.

A key to making your internal rate of return (IRR) as strong as possible when launching a new product is by making decisions early in the design process. This can be easier said than done though. To shift left effectively, you must connect your heavy equipment manufacturers’ teams. This inter-team connectivity can be instituted by determining configurations, planning earlier, building manufacturing know-how and managing change.

The essential nature of a collaborative approach in heavy equipment manufacturing is obvious. But how do you achieve effective, cohesive collaboration? It begins with a common digital thread. This facilitates closed-loop smart manufacturing, with end-to-end continuity of configuration-specific data, direct sharing of consistent data between disciplines and continuous feedback.

Review this ebook to get insight on how to institute a collaborative approach to managing complexity in heavy equipment manufacturing.
