Product Architect

Address market needs while minimizing costs by defining and optimizing a multi-discipline product architecture with the Product Architect Role on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

The ENOVIA 3DEXPERIENCE Product Architect (PDA) Role drives product development based on captured customer, market and technology requirements.

Product Architect defines a logical product architecture, which ensures that multi-discipline design activities are performed with a complete definition and understanding of a product’s market, functional and technical objectives including the definition and management of product variants.

Product Architect Benefits

Define and Optimize the Product Architecture

Drive product development by assigning product features after refining customer and product requirements. Plan tests to validate product features to ensure requirements are fulfilled successfully.

Reduce Product Development Effort

Lower product development time, cost and risks with a modular-based design approach and by reusing proven and standard product features.

Master Product Diversity

Engage configuration services to control excessive proliferation of product or feature variants. Identify and specify the expected variants to meet requirements.

Leverage Enterprise Change Management

Use built-in traceability to leverage the enterprise change management process and fully partake in change governance, implementation monitoring and validation.

Respond to Component Changes Systematically

Ensure cross-functional understanding of product features for a more effective reaction to component changes.
