Airbus uses model-based Product line engineering (PLE) as a competitive advantage

Modern products such as cars, household appliances and consumer electronics are becoming increasingly complex! One of the main drivers for this development is the introduction of sophisticated software.

An aircraft is probably one of the most complex products in the world. Accordingly, it is hardly surprising that the entire product portfolio at Airbus is already being developed digitally. To remain competitive, companies must adapt their product development processes.

It is very interesting to take a look behind the scenes at Airbus. It shows how manufacturers can benefit from model-based PLE and a sophisticated variant management solution.

And it also shows: Sustainability already starts with product development.

Even SMEs can learn from pioneers like Airbus, who are embracing holistic variant management, as Computerwoche reports.
