Driving Continuous Improvement for Design & Engineering: Process Visualization and Analysis with Procelerate's VDot (TT)
Product development presents one of the most complex of all business processes that an enterprise may face. New approaches have established a useful framework for addressing three steps of solution building: process visualization, process analysis, and process execution. Following an integrated approach, end users can model their processes, determine root causes of underperformance, develop better process flows, analyze requirements, define an implementation road map, and execute processes within an integrated architectural framework. As one of the early leaders in the emerging segment of the PLM market for integrated semantic frameworks, Procelerate offers immediate benefits with an easy-to-use and -adopt framework for continuous improvement. The Procelerate VDot solution enables the visualization, analysis, and execution of complex collaborative processes that take place in design and engineering.
