4 Lessons Every Engineer Needs to Learn About Simulation Software

Posted by Emma Rudeck on 29-Sep-2017 12:00:00

Simulation software enables engineers to apply loads and stresses to designs, to see how they cope with real-world conditions. Simulation of this kind has transformed the product development cycle for many manufacturers and delivers significant value throughout the design process.

These platforms have been available for many years, and you may already use them. But if you’re considering getting exploring the opportunities of simulation, this blog looks at how simulation can benefit the design tasks you undertake every day.

5 Benefits of Additive Manufacturing for Product Designers

Posted by Emma Rudeck on 22-Sep-2017 11:00:00

Additive manufacturing is a process where 3D design data is used to manufacture a component by layering up a depositing material. Increasingly, it's being used synonymously with 3D printing.

Typically, multiple software packages are often required to make additive manufacturing a reality, which results in designers having to export, redesign and optimise - costing time and resource. However, the Creo 4.0 Additive Manufacturing extension resolves these issue.

For anyone interested in learning more, here are the five key benefits of additive manufacturing for product designers

Beginning the Digital Engineering Journey: How to Get Started

Posted by Emma Rudeck on 02-Aug-2017 15:00:00

To say connected products is a trend is an understatement. By the end of 2017, IDC estimates that 70% of discrete manufacturers will offer connected products.

This new breed of products, which have connectivity at their centre, is dramatically changing industries and competition as we know them today.

But, for organisations to be able to meet the challenge, they need all the key stakeholders in the product lifecycle to be aligned. At the same time, processes will need to be streamlined, so that organisations are in a better shape to react to customer feedback and the real-time data that connectivity provides.

Breaking Down Barriers: How ThingWorx Navigate 1.5 Enables Communication

Posted by Emma Rudeck on 31-Jul-2017 11:00:00

One of the key challenges facing manufacturers today is communicating information throughout the organisation.

Enabling this requires universal data access for all stakeholders in the product lifecycle. But siloed departments and teams mean this is often easier said than done.

To combat this problem, ThingWorx Navigate opens up new communication opportunities for manufacturers by modernising how organisations see, access and author production information stored across enterprise systems - effectively breaking down barriers to communication.

Here are five ways that ThingWorx Navigate enables this to happen:

How to Transform Product Development with Easy Access to PLM data

Posted by Emma Rudeck on 11-May-2017 14:00:00

In 2012, a report by IDC suggested that organisations were only using 0.5% of the data they produced. Alone, that’s a worrying statistic, but combine it with a 2013 finding that 90% of the world’s data had been created in the previous two years, and there’s clearly a rather large hole down which business metrics are falling.
