Webinar – Implementing configurable product design

Having a configurable product architecture has significant benefits to any business. Including cost reduction through increased productivity to a simplified sales process that customers can understand. One of the biggest challenges for product development teams is implementing it successfully.

The ability to develop and manufacture customised products is a clear advantage in a competitive marketplace, but it is also a potential complexity driver.

Configurable product architecture allows customers to customise and enables the business to reduce complexity and optimise its product portfolio. The best way to start implementing this is by defining what you want to achieve from the outset and having the correct tools and design software to manage it.

This presentation introduces a methodical approach to defining an optimal degree of variance before committing to detailed design in Zuken’s CR-8000 and E3.series.
