Increasingly customers now expect new products to be intelligent, and often connected to the internet through Bluetooth or wireless, from the Nest thermostat in the home to manufacturing facilities. In fact, Gartner predicts that the total number of “things” or connected devices will reach 20.4 billion by 2020.
In response, companies are looking to be the first in their respective industries to have their product include intelligence and/or connectivity. Society is also becoming more social and more connected…from smart products to smart cities, which has made designing products more complex than ever before.
As product design is evolving and business is transforming to accommodate the demands from customers, we have learned that adding intelligence to products adds several new challenges.
On May 23rd, we will be presenting a 22-Minute webinar: Design of Smart & Connected Things that will explain how to simplify this process—and resolve these challenges—by using SOLIDWORKS® full ecosystem of innovative solutions. We will focus on clarifying the changing role of “supplier of products” to “provider of intelligent products.”
