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

BigLever Gears.

BigLever’s industry-standard Gears Product Line Engineering Tool and Lifecycle Framework allows you to develop, deliver and evolve your product line, smoothly and efficiently, through each stage of the lifecycle – from requirements to design, implementation, testing, delivery, maintenance and evolution. Gears is the technology foundation for BigLever’s onePLE solution and the PLE Ecosystem.

Introducing Enterprise Gears.

BigLever has released its next generation Gears solution – Enterprise Gears. This new solution delivers a web-based interface that makes Gears fully accessible for all users, and a server API that enables the seamless integration of PLE with other tools, processes and enterprise systems. With Enterprise Gears, organizations can — more rapidly and efficiently — extend Feature-based PLE across the enterprise.

Reflections: INCOSE International Workshop 2023

The steady march of Feature-based Product Line Engineering (PLE) from the narrow field of early adopters into the broad mainstream of systems engineering practitioners was on full display at the INCOSE International Workshop (IW2023) in Torrance, California in...

Product Line Processes in an Engineering Tool Ecosystem

In a product-centric environment, it’s common for the same engineering work to be repeated over and over - once for each product in the portfolio to which the work applies. Each time a new requirement is added, a software defect is corrected, or a test case is...
