Overall, product development has rapidly shifted to meet changing customer demands, increased competition, and more stringent regulations. Product companies (including those in ITAR/EAR markets) have responded with smarter and more connected products, lean but highly productive distributed teams, and global best-of-breed partners.
The challenge? How to effectively manage these new complexities.
A big part of the answer is to ensure complete connection and full visibility throughout new product development and introduction (NPDI) and beyond. That means linking all product development, quality activities, and change processes to the complete product record for one’s entire team and supply chain partners in a single, reliable view.
Complying with ITAR and EAR won’t get businesses to where they want to go if they don’t also optimize their approach to product lifecycle management.
