PL1602B - Using Onshape and Arena For Agile Product Development

Learn how the Onshape-Arena Connection supports continuous, cross-functional product development that can significantly reduce costs and schedule impacts on the manufacturing process. With Connection, all stakeholders in the product development process including design engineering, quality, procurement, and supply chain partners are always working on the same version of a design. This allows for design reviews at any time and improvements to the product before investments are made in expensive manufacturing lines and tooling. The Connection requires zero downloads, installs, or administration time and comes at no additional cost to Onshape and Arena users. Attend this session!
