Manufacturers of all sizes are facing increased complexity in their product development environments, including faster product commoditization, outsourcing, globalization, cost pressures, and corporate pressures for growth. Benchmarks of small to medium-size enterprises (SMEs) indicate that about one third outsource production and 22% outsource at least some of their product design, with about 75% having a global product design strategy in place.
Despite the challenges with complexity, manufacturers are not satisfied with maintaining the status quo; they are simultaneously focusing on growth and place even higher strategic importance on revenue growth in combination with cost control.
