Engineering Automation

Product Development (PD) organizations across the world face challenges in improving time-to-market, lowering new product development costs, enhancing product functionality and quality, and mitigating knowledge attrition. TCS’ Engineering Automation group offers services in the areas of PD IT Consulting, Application Development and Sustenance to overcome the above challenges.

Client Challenges

  • Constant need for reduced product development time and product development IT costs
  • Maintaining process integration across PD functions
  • Increasing need for CAD and CAE collaboration
  • Compliance to regulations and standards
  • Knowledge retention and reuse
  • Realization of optimized product performance 

What TCS Provides

TCS’ Engineering Automation solutions can help you in the following stages of PD:

PD IT Consulting:

  • Reviewing PD processes: sales/bid engineering, design, analysis and manufacturing
  • Defining role and scope of engineering IT applications
  • Assessing technical feasibility and developing business cases 

PD IT Development (Engineering IT/Automation Applications Development):

  • Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE):
    • Knowledge captured and structured from across the phases of product lifecycle
    • Intelligent solutions that reuse product and design process knowledge to design, configure and engineer the product
  • Process Automation:
    • Customization of COTS products using their APIs
    • Development of standalone products/tools for engineering applications such as translators and process aids
    • CAE process integration
    • Integration of design phases (concepts, preliminary and detailed)
  • Product Validation: Tools to automate the assessment for compliance to regulatory requirements and institutionalize standards and best practices
  • Product Optimization: Enhance product performance using the formal Design of Experiments (DOE) and optimization techniques for design space exploration

PD IT Sustenance:

  • Application portfolio analysis and transitioning
  • Migration of custom developed applications and data across platforms

Business Value

  • Higher operational efficiency with reduction in product development cost
  • Significant reduction in cycle time, between 60 and 95%
  • Reduced rework cycles by more than 50% with dynamic design validation
  • Improved product performance by more than 25%
  • Standardization of design processes and product configurations
  • Advantage of a “knowledge handbook” that captures knowledge in a structured format for effective reuse
