In early 2024, ESI commissioned Aberdeen Strategy and Research to study, measure, and show the Value of Virtual Prototyping. Their research covered senior stakeholders across automotive, aerospace, industrial manufacturing, and heavy machinery manufacturers, enabling them to discover and share the catalysts for change, human and technology challenges, and results you might expect. In the resulting eBook, Senior Analyst Sarah Clayton shares how "Shift Left Testing" and leveraging Virtual Prototyping earlier in your PLM processes will help you increase manufacturability, decrease costs and compliance risks, and improve product quality.
