The World has Shifted.
The current global events are expected to have a significant impact on operating models and business dynamics. Organizations will have to adapt to the new normal and prime themselves for growth in a new environment. This is specifically true for a company’s engineering and manufacturing operations which are facing multiple challenges. So how does an organization respond to these challenges and reset their operations to make them robust and future proof? Join Tata Technologies and Dassault Systèmes as we explore the technologies and processes available to facilitate this new extended and connected enterprise in a live webinar taking place on November 19, 2020 at 11:00 AM Eastern Time.

Challenges for Engineering and Manufacturing
It is clear that there will be two major trends for manufacturing companies when it comes to engineering and manufacturing:
- A dramatic shift from physically collocated engineering design teams to distributed and diversified design effort
- Manufacturing will move from specialized and limited product lines to robust and scalable production lines that can be quickly repurposed.
In addition to these trends, companies are facing additional complexities:
- Products are becoming more complex with customers demanding greater variation, increasing pressure on engineering and design functions to produce accurate virtual representations.
- Because of the distributed nature of engineering and design, IT infrastructure is been stretched and challenged.
- Current global distributed supplier networks and logistics challenges are an imminent threat to supply continuity, leading to a domino impact on supplies, spare parts and production.
- Manufacturing must be flexible – this was already a trend, but has now become an imperative.
There is a framework for changing an organization, according to Tata Technologies. Companies need to identify immediate system Restart challenges, devise action plans to Stabilize operations in the medium term and equip themselves to Thrive in the new normal.
Business as usual “won’t” be as usual anymore. To thrive, companies must adapt to the new normal.
Design and Manufacturing in the New Normal
The way new and better products are designed and manufactured in this new normal must evolve. The days of a static, collocated team are over – distributed, dynamic teams that collaborate in real time have arrived. Factories have to be more connected and better equipped to withstand shocks. But making this work requires new ways of thinking and new technologies to support them. Is your organization ready for the challenge?
Technology exists today to support the ReSet process. Here are some examples:
Simulation on the Cloud
Simulation and Analysis is no longer the preserve of a specialized analyst who works on complicated software in isolated islands. With new cloud based technology available from Dassault Systèmes, designers can undertake detailed and meaningful analysis studies without having to invest in expensive infrastructure.
Factory of the Future
The world of manufacturing has to be ReSet, and many companies are looking at local or on-shore manufacturing as a strategic necessity. This will require a rethink of how factories are configured and equipped to reduce costs, improve efficiencies and future proof them against shocks. The technology exists to do this, and Tata Technologies and Dassault Systemes can enable this vision
PLM for Mid-Sized Manufacturers
Midsized companies must compete with the agility of smaller companies while delivering at the scale of larger competitors. This poses unique challenges for their product development process. In addition, ReSet has made a connected engineering a necessity. There is a way for these companies to implement and benefit from a rightsized PLM system. It is possible to achieve all the benefits of PLM within a midsized budget and respond to the distributed workforce challenge. Tata Technologies and Dassault Systemes can implement a solution that allows for connected engineering in mid-sized manufacturers.
Cloud Based Solutions
There is no question that applications and technology are moving to the cloud and associated hosted solutions. This new way of doing business holds numerous advantages, reduced IT expenses, work from anywhere capability and automatic updates. Dassault Systèmes has a hosted solution for multiple applications that leverages all these benefits is as secure as any other distributed implementation.
