Manufacturing Systems Engineering

Developing Strategies to Support Manufacturing Systems Development

CIMdata's Manufacturing Systems Engineering practice focuses on bridging the flow of data and integrating processes between manufacturing and the design, fabrication, and operation of facilities and infrastructure to improve processes and products through the product lifecycle.

The practice covers CAM, digital manufacturing, manufacturing operations management (MOM), manufacturing execution systems, quality execution, manufacturing intelligence strategies and solutions, as well as R&D management for process industries.

Quality and Reliability Engineering

Designing for Reliability through Capture & Reuse of Failure Knowledge

CIMdata’s Quality & Reliability Engineering (QRE) consulting practice focuses on enabling “learning system based design-for-reliability” in order to deal with the complexity and the speed of evolution of software-intensive products as well as the associated challenge of low insights into potential failure modes. This calls for systems engineering to be seamlessly integrated with reliability engineering and supported by a product failure knowledge capture and reuse system. The QRE consulting practice leverages CIMdata’s established consulting services, insights, practical experience, best practices, focused research, maturity models, and roadmaps to provide guidance on how to develop dependable software-intensive products of the future.

Simulation-Driven Systems Development

Realizing the Business Benefits of Model-Based Systems Engineering

CIMdata's SDSD consulting services concentrate on how to best leverage the full range of MBSE-enabling solutions and industry best practices by integrating these into an organization's daily work processes. Many companies are using MBSE-enabling solutions separately in their existing systems engineering and manufacturing design processes with positive impact. At the same time, a huge potential remains in leveraging MBSE-enabling technologies and processes integrated with PLM platforms for end-to-end manufacturing workflows for design, engineering, bidding, fabrication, and customer service integration across the value chain.

CIMdata's approach is to help our customers assess and understand where they stand today in terms of MBSE maturity ("As Is"), define the vision and objectives for where they need to be in their use of MBSE tools and processes ("To Be"), and help them define an implementation strategy and roadmap to get them to the desired to-be state. This MBSE plan is always developed and defined with the end objectives of the business in mind since MBSE should and must be an enabler for innovation and corporate gain.
