Improve profitability by reducing product delays and engineering costs


Your customers demand connected, intelligent, almost instinctual electronic products to enable their work and delight their senses. Yet, delivering these products by multi-disciplinary mechatronics design teams requires extraordinary coordination of systems, electronics, mechanical, and software engineering. The development environment requires more than simple product lifecycle management tools. Diverse engineering work must be intelligently captured, coordinated, and shared in real-time with easy-to-understand and use interfaces. Different design goals, best practices, terminologies, specifications, and schedules must all be efficiently managed.

Smarter, Faster, Lighter integrates key design enablement solutions to provide a structured, integrated, yet flexible and modular collaborative development experience that ensures each engineer is 100% aware of their colleagues’ work with minimum effort.  It helps accelerate product development cycles and minimize engineering costs, while improving product development capacity.

Smarter, Faster, Lighter Industry Solution Experience Benefits:

  • Increase product desirability and customer loyalty
  • Achieve the right design the first time
  • Innovate consumer experiences, not just product features
  • Reduce time-to-market and product defects

Our products are increasingly sophisticated because of the interdependence among mechanical housing, printed circuit board, and assembly process. Smarter, Faster, Lighter supports the integrated approach that is essential to any mechatronics design with end-to-end traceability.
