D3’s Typical Point of Entry is Engineering


It's all about the data, which we refer to as "Engineering Intelligence" because it's fluid and changes often.

  • Engineering is often referred to as the "Black Box" of manufacturing organizations. Meaning, it's mysterious, but also highly technical and complex.
  • D3 exposes what's going on in the "Black Box" so the entire enterprise can benefit from the Engineering Intelligence (data) engineering creates.
  • In D3's experience, when companies design products, the engineering department owns all of the data.
  • Production cannot manufacture anything without engineering's data.
  • Sales cannot sell anything without production, making products.
  • Finance will not need to worry about counting money without sales.
  • Therefore, there will be no customers to service or support.

Let D3’s industry experts help your company draw a reliable road map to success. Achieving engineering efficiency plays a pivotal role in helping you not only reach your goals but increase productivity, reduce costs and give you a leg up.
