The power of low code in product development for the heavy equipment industry

To succeed in today’s market, heavy equipment manufacturers must find a solution for dealing with disconnected systems across the company while also maintaining access to up-to-date resources across the value chain. Every team member needs to easily access the right information to perform their jobs, regardless of the source system.

One solution is to employ a low-code platform to support product development, engineering, and other critical functions within your manufacturing ecosystem.

Read this white paper to learn about the power of low code in heavy equipment and a new approach to product development and engineering.

Digitalization is essential in manufacturing IT

The pace of new product introductions (NPIs), customization and product variations is escalating– all with demands for ever-shorter time to market. A digitalization approach to product development and engineering is essential in manufacturing IT. PLM software combined with personalized applications can accelerate planning, development and delivery of innovative products.

Low code PLM helps manufacturers maximize their IT investment

Low code PLM also helps manufacturers maximize their IT investment. One example is a highly adaptable low code app that enables an OEM to view a large, complex BOM with part status, and provide analytics for reports and dashboards that allow the program manager to efficiently manage the plan behind every new part.

Another example is a web application built by an OEM that ties together data from a multi-site PLM implementation, an enterprise engineering bill of material (BOM) system, and a legacy drawing document management repository.

The advantages of low code application development

Low code application development is a visual, model-driven process to build and deploy software applications. One of the numerous advantages of low code application development is the drag-and-drop interface that allows for apps to be built with new functionality and interconnectivity to new or existing systems.

These low code platforms enable a company to support a cloud-native environment, providing robust security and governance features, and employing CAD visualization.
