Improving Team Efficiency with an Integrated Engineering Desktop Environment



The Xpedition Enterprise engineering desktop encompasses all design creation and simulation tasks, enabling engineers to improve individual and team productivity without sacrificing product performance and quality.

Today's product teams have to achieve the same or greater workloads with fewer engineers. Creating differentiated products performing at the bleeding edge requires advanced design and verification solutions - generally leading to tool specialization and longer design cycles. To improve engineering productivity, tools need to be tightly integrated within a common desktop environment, enabling engineers to shorten the design/validation cycle.

What You Will Learn

  • Improved models of engineering team organization and collaboration
  • How to shorten design time through concurrent engineering across all phases of design
  • An approach to integration between design and validation that reduces design cycles and improves product quality
