The Challenge
Fujitsu Network Communications, a leading optical solutions provider, faced challenges in managing customer requirements for increasingly complex products, developing solutions, and testing them on accelerating schedules. The company's document-based system made it difficult to reuse requirements and communicate them to downstream groups, necessitating a shift from a document-centric approach to a data-centric one. Managing large numbers of documents was time-consuming and lacked visibility, making it hard to keep the requirements and test teams in sync. The company was also experiencing issues with testing requirements or writing test cases for requirements that had been modified or no longer existed. Fujitsu needed a solution to eliminate these inefficiencies and streamline its processes.
The Customer

Fujitsu Network Communications

About The Customer
Fujitsu Network Communications is a US-based subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited of Japan. As the leading optical solutions provider to land-line, cable, and wireless carriers, Fujitsu helps to complete billions of connections daily. Its customer roster includes household names like Verizon and AT&T. Fujitsu prides itself on delivering the highest quality in the industry and is known for its reliable, long-lasting products. As customer demands for new product features and capabilities escalated, Fujitsu recognized the need for advanced processes and systems to maintain its quality-leader position.
The Solution
Fujitsu turned to Dassault Systèmes (3DS) and its high-tech solutions on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, custom built for high-tech companies. Fujitsu chose ENOVIA Version 6 (V6), the 3DS application for collaborative innovation, to address requirements, traceability, and testing. The goal was to improve data visibility, eliminate rework, and streamline product development from initial customer requirement to manufacturing. ENOVIA V6 integrates Fujitsu’s requirements and test case management processes on a single platform, replacing multiple applications and managing over 200 different processes. The solution also serves as a repository for all test cases, providing advanced dynamic reporting capabilities while managing a wide range of processes. ENOVIA V6 helps Fujitsu manage requirements as metadata, facilitating comprehensive reporting, quicker user access to requirements, requirement reuse, and change management.
Operational Impact
  • The implementation of ENOVIA V6 on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform has significantly simplified Fujitsu's process. Engineers only have to learn one application, eliminating the duplication of information in multiple systems and reducing administration tasks. The solution has facilitated collaboration between Fujitsu’s systems engineering and test groups, ensuring all requirements are being satisfied with good traceability. The shift from managing requirements in documents to managing them as metadata has enabled comprehensive reporting, quicker user access to requirements, requirement reuse, and change management. The integration of test case management with requirements management has made test cases easier to create and reuse, with real-time, on-demand reporting. The solution has also improved the collaboration between various Fujitsu offices around the globe.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Reduced flow-time by at least 20 percent
  • Improved quality by at least 10 percent
  • Saved 114 weeks of staff time annually in test preparation, execution, and project administration for its systems validation test and NETSMART® product lines
