Consumer Products & Retail.
Opening doors with digitalization and the right software to ensure you meet the growing consumer demand for more options and personalization
Whether you produce goods for home and office, appliances, sporting goods, or toys, you face similar challenges. Many factors are increasing complexity, including demands for personalization, connected products, and sustainability.
It’s now possible to welcome complexity and turn it to your competitive advantage. Comprehensive digitalization goes beyond consumer product design software to offer a comprehensive digital twin.
Shifting from Large to Small-Scale Production
One current trend is the shift away from mass producing a few product lines towards the smaller scale batch manufacturing of products to provides many more options to consumers. This creates challenges. You may be finding yourself much more engaged in design and manufacturing processes than expected.
Thankfully, the right software portfolio supports a successful transition. It ranges from consumer product design software to manufacturing operations management (MOM) and product lifecycle management (PLM). Our software for flexible manufacturing enables smart manufacturing, flexible production planning, and intelligent supply management that supports supply chain innovation.
Facilitating Formulation in Food & Beverage Production
Food and beverage producers are witnessing the same demand for increased product differentiation seen across consumer goods. Digitalization is the answer to meeting this demand – extending beyond food safety compliance systems to meet a host of current challenges.
For example, Opcenter software makes it easier for formulators to develop new formulas or modify existing ones. A digital twin lets you simulate formulations in real time to reach desired properties much more quickly and cost effectively. You can also explore solutions for food supply chain innovation.
Streamlining product development
Technologies to Support Personalized Consumer Goods
There has been an explosion of variants within many product lines as consumers demand products customized to their specifications. Meeting demand has meant more cost and effort to accommodate multiple designs and many limited production runs.
With our product design software, you can maximize your re-use of existing assets and speed requirements validation. Alternately, these solutions can be a powerful tool to achieve cost vs performance outcomes. Meanwhile, fully integrated product lifecycle management (PLM), production design optimization, and flexible manufacturing – including additive manufacturing – uses simulation to bridge design and production to accelerate time to market.
Retail 4.0: an Ongoing Revolution
Retailers have weathered one disruption after another. However, thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT) in consumer packaged goods and online shopping, retailers have been highly successful at gathering data on consumers and their preferences.
Equipped with the modern product data management software and retail product engineering solutions we can offer, your retail business can continue to prosper. You can explore new business models, support the sustainability and traceability consumers demand, and innovate well into the future.
