NX is a solution that transforms the entire product development process to reduce wastes and design in quality. More than a suite of integrated CAD, CAM and CAEapplications, NX goes beyond individual and departmental productivity to improve efficiency in the overall process and at each step in the process.
A comprehensive solution, NX is built on an open foundation and advanced technologies that directly support initiatives to transform business processes.
Transforming the process; NX delivers all the tools and technologies that companies need to implement formal business transformation initiatives like Lean Design and Design for Six Sigma. With a unified design-through manufacturing solution, NX enables organizations to manage all of their product and process knowledge assets to transform product development.
Eliminating waste; With NX, companies can engineer lean processes, eliminating the wastes that add time and expense to the overall development cycle. NX helps companies reduce delays and downtime while development personnel are looking for information or waiting for test results and feedback. It helps eliminate the resources wasted on designs that are never completed, or on unnecessary documents and
prototypes. It helps companies rein in wastes due to overdesigning
products with unnecessary features, or due to underutilization of proven design knowledge. With NX, manufacturers reduce time and effort wasted on manufacturing errors and product performance failures.
Building in quality; NX transforms product development from a reactive
process where quality is inspected in, to a proactive process that
assures quality at every step. By managing key product attributes and guiding the development process to meet market requirements, NX helps companies design in quality that adds customer value. By bringing critical performance and manufacturing requirements up front in the development process, NX helps companies optimize and balance design objectives and define processes that will achieve those objectives. Integrated simulation, validation and optimization tools in NX support continuous analysis and verification of both product and process to help manufacturers reduce defects and achieve the highest levels of quality.
