Collaborative customization of complex products


Collaboration all along  the product life cycle is a strategy that allows manufacturing companies to compete in global business environments.

The potential business that arises from collaborative environments is capturing the attention of industrial organizations as never before. Current market conditions require companies to be collaborative in order to differentiate their products and services and get the advantage over  global companies.

This inevitably leads to increase the variety of products and having to manage shorter product life cycle and unpredictable demand levels with several  variations and capabilities.

In order to successfully deal with these scenarios, it is necessary to start an intra and inter-company collaboration among the participants to work in a coordinative and shared way from different geographical areas.

Collaboration with the customer can already emerge in the early phases of the business opportunity where the product specifications are explained, in order to be designed.

In an interconnected environment, the partners already collaborate in the early phases of design and concept, defining different options up to the design and the engineering.

The success of the collaborative strategy depends not only on the identification of suitable qualified partners but also on the use of correct ICT tools, which are necessary for processing information seamlessly and able to act in dynamic business environments.

The collaborative product development supports design innovation and increases productivity. In addition, design collaboration facilitates interactions among multidisciplinary design teams, globally distributed through cooperation, coordination and communication.

This strategic vision requires a network distributed among stakeholders to facilitate product upgrades and architecture process along the product life-cycle.

In order to have a successful collaboration in Design-to-Order, Engineer-To-Order and Customize-to-Order scenarios, it is necessary to ensure the integration between PLM, CRM, PM and document files with an enterprise approach.
