Consumer products are becoming increasingly complex, necessitating cross-functional collaboration during product planning, design, development, and manufacturing processes. Connectivity is essential for consumers to enjoy their home appliances, with most of them connecting to smartphones, virtual assistants, or both. Manufacturers must also comply with applicable government regulations, safety, and energy efficiency standards while meeting consumer expectations. Additionally, consumer products require elaborate software-enabled systems that adapt to changing consumer behaviors.

Process design and validation are unified solutions that enable consumer goods manufacturers to define and virtually validate production processes to anticipate any potential issues.

As consumer products evolve, it becomes increasingly evident that manufacturers must adapt to meet demands. Numerous organizations have already begun investing in planning tools and novel manufacturing solutions to stay competitive and satisfy customers. Despite these formidable challenges, many Consumer Goods Manufacturers have yet to develop the end-to-end digital design and validation processes required to optimize manufacturing performance and eliminate enigmatic difficulties.

Enabling virtual process validation

Brands can alleviate concerns by leveraging virtual system simulation that integrates mechanical with electronics and complex software. Additionally, manufacturers can design product manufacturing and processes more effectively.

Eliminate uncertainty by introducing solutions that validate product production processes and performance with manufacturing intelligence, guaranteeing that new items are less difficult to manufacture and that the plant is prepared to manufacture them.

Solution capabilities

Explore the key areas of this solution.

Adaptable PLM Foundation

An adaptable product lifecycle management (PLM) foundation can help you respond quickly to change from business or market disruptions. Business-wide collaboration is easy when PLM is accessible from a web browser, on any device, and within the design tools and office applications people use every day. You can choose from flexible deployment options (on-premises, cloud, SaaS) for fast time-to-value and lower cost of ownership.

Design for Additive Manufacture

Additive manufacturing is changing the way products are designed as well as how they are manufactured, by enabling optimized designs that were previously impossible or too expensive to make. Design, optimize, and build metal and plastic components using the latest additive manufacturing methods.

Design for Manufacturing

Design for manufacturing can help you significantly reduce engineering change orders (ECOs), manufacturing defects, costs, and delays. DFMPro for NX gives you high-definition 3D tools that automate and formalize the design review process for manufacturability, helping you identify design issues that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture.

Digital Manufacturing Viewer

Easily share and view manufacturing engineering data stored in your PLM system, from electronic work instructions and 3D models to process simulations and markups.

Environmental compliance & product sustainability

Stay compliant and address your sustainability needs with material and substance management, automated supplier declaration processing, environmental compliance grading and reporting, and a PLM framework product for sustainability.

Industrial Design & Styling

Distinctive design and styling gives companies a competitive advantage. Our products deliver flexible, robust computer-aided industrial design and styling software that accelerates your product engineering by providing fast concept designs that can be directly used in modeling.

Manufacturing Process Planning

Efficiently author manufacturing process plans and effectively communicate them throughout your extended enterprise.

Manufacturing Quality Planning

Integrate quality parameters during product design, manufacturing planning and production to ensure dimensional and build quality, and to help eliminate costly quality issues.

Manufacturing Work Instructions

Create and deliver more complete manufacturing work instructions into production and provide greater clarity of process steps on the shop floor.
