Optimizing Product Realization Costs Across the Value Chain
Across a range of industries, realization of cost optimization requires a holistic approach throughout the product lifecycle - requirements, design, manufacture and post-launch - in order to weed out cost overruns and ensure the highest quality process and products.
Blockchain's Smart Contracts: Driving the Next Wave of Innovation Across Manufacturing Value Chains
By eliminating intermediaries and by enabling smart contracts with embedded, trusted business rules, blockchain offers extraordinary opportunities for manufacturing on every level of the supply chain. To profitably ride this wave of disruptive innovation, any stakeholder in the manufacturing value chain should be familiar with the basics and guidelines for proceeding.
Improving the Efficacy of Root Cause Analysis
When medical device organizations apply a relevant and appropriate level of automation to root cause analysis, they can ensure swift action on nonconformities and avoid issue reoccurrence.
Accelerating the Development of Medical Devices: The Value of Proactive Risk Management
Identifying risks and working to mitigate them during the early stages of product development is critical for medical-device manufacturers worldwide. By focusing on four strategies - risk limitation, risk transfer, risk avoidance and risk acceptance, companies can evaluate risk effectively, take appropriate actions, and reduce the time and costs associated with New Product Development (NPD).
An Integrated Simulation Tool Framework for Process Data Management
Digital simulations play an increasing role in product lifecycle management (PLM) processes and simulation data management (SDM) based on the PLM XML protocol, which is a key interface with computer-aided engineering (CAE) applications. We offer a framework for aligning SDM with the overall product development process to shorten lead times and optimize output.
Decoding Quality Management Systems
In their efforts to decrease costs, improve customer loyalty and extend brand reputation, organizations need a holistic, long-term view of enterprise quality management systems.
Connected Products for the Industrial World
By leveraging product-centric connected ecosystems, manufacturers can create new and more effective business models, advance operational excellence and design and develop better products and services that align with customer needs and preferences.
For many manufacturers, evaluating and managing the risk of obsolescence is a missing piece of their overall management strategy, an oversight that can have significant implications in terms of business continuity. With a clear obsolescence policy and risk-assessment framework, manufacturing companies can help ensure that their systems and assets remain up and running, supported by a continuous risk-mitigation cycle.
Employing Analytics to Automate and Optimize Insurance Distribution
Today's insurers have the opportunity to employ advanced analytics to automate and optimize distribution, analyze and track customer patterns, enhance marketing campaigns, better manage agents and deliver more value to the business and its customers.
How Soft Sensing Using Simulation Enhances Plant Process Management
By applying a high-fidelity dynamic simulation model for soft sensing, organizations can cost-effectively supplement actual process measurement instrumentation in noncritical areas. As a sample illustration, we use a naphtha sweetening plant cycle.
Learn how Cognizant's Engineering and Manufacturing Solutions practice can implement connected solutions for manufacturers and owners of heavy assets and production equipment using Internet of Things (IoT).
Cognizant partners with manufacturing companies to establish quality metrics, create quality systems that improve operations and help embed a culture of quality in the organization. Our proprietary frameworks accelerate time-to-solution and align quality systems with people, process, and technology.
Our PLM team recently helped an advanced technology company achieve significant results following a makeover of its PLM system. After adding more than 600 users from various business units to the new PLM system, management realized 15% faster time-to-market. Productivity increased significantly while operating costs fell and by better aligning business requirements with process strategy, the company was able to respond faster to business needs.
Through a broad relationship encompassing R&D, Product Development, sustenance as well as innovation dimensions, Cognizant helps in creation of breakthrough solutions for a Global Industrial Automation company. We help deliver unparalleled Automation Solutions that are easier to maintain, offer more flexibility and have a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for end consumers.
Our Controls and Operations Management team helped a leading polyester film manufacturer implement real-time tracking of its made-to-order polyester film rolls. By re-engineering plant floor systems to run on a more advanced platform—and connecting it to the Invensys FOXBORO scheduling system—we helped management launch a new, more productive approach for identifying and solving problems.
