What if the innovation, economy of scale, competitive advantage, and profitability of your product line were limited only by your imagination instead of your engineering capacity?
Organizations are being pushed to the edge of their capability by the exponentially growing diversity and complexity of today’s product lines — how they are engineered, produced, delivered, and evolved. These variant and complexity management challenges are so large they can impede a company’s ability to achieve strategic business objectives.
Feature-based Product Line Engineering (PLE) is a breakthrough practice that removes this complexity barrier, and BigLever’s onePLE is a holistic solution that removes the barriers to rapid PLE adoption. A growing number of forward thinking organizations are engineering their competitive advantage with the industry leading Feature-based PLE solutions from BigLever. Ask yourself…What is your PLE Strategy?
Time to market.
Leverage major engineering improvements to speed time to market. Target and hit new market windows more efficiently, effectively and profitably than your competitors.
Efficiency & productivity.
Eliminate redundant, repetitive tasks to allow your skilled engineering talent to focus on high value work — and bring a new level of efficiency to your organization.
Product line scalability.
Use feature-based asset sharing and automated production to create new products and product features, and grow your product line — with the push of a button.
Remove human error, simplify and streamline testing and Q&A, and decrease overall defect density to make major improvements in the quality of your product line offering.
