PRODUCT PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT & SYSTEMS ENGINEERING

Turning innovative ideas into commercially successful offerings requires flexibility and speed. Portfolio management must be guided by a stringent focus on balancing customer value with necessary but costly portfolio complexity to ensure profitability. Understanding the dynamics within target market segments is key.

This understanding enables businesses to position products successfully against competitors' offerings, optimize a single product's business case, prioritize R&D budgets, and derive modular product/system architectures to quickly react to changing market requirements. The trend to Software-centric architectures shifts paradigms in previously mechatronics oriented organizations.
