Report Excerpt:


Manufacturers today compete on speed and innovation to drive product profitability and profitable growth. These companies have recently given a lot of attention to business process improvement, organizational design, and enabling software technology to improve engineering productivity. Little executive attention has been placed, however, on the importance of providing efficient access to engineering reference information.

Streamlined, electronic access to engineering information is another tool in the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) toolkit that improves design efficiency so engineers can spend more time on innovation, create more new intellectual property, and accelerate time to market to capture market share and margin advantages.
