Facing new challenges through globalization, machine builders are investing in new technologies and skills to maintain competitiveness and penetrate emerging markets. In today's technologically mature markets, the highest gains can be achieved with software. Automation platforms will help design engineers make gains in productivity and efficiency that will be comparable to the the benefits achieved in the IT world.

Streamlining the design, development, and the final integration of industrial machinery is one of the foremost concerns of engineering managers. What many are facing is the increased complexity of integrating mechanical, electrical, automation software and other subsystems. This complexity continues to impede time-to-market and creates uncertainty in project development cycles. These challenges are making it a business imperative to seek out efficient internal development practices that are not an impediment to conceptual design through detailed design and delivery.
