Experiencing Is Believing in Immersive Design
The power of an immersive, shared experience to promote collaboration and inform design should not be underestimated.
High-Performance Computing (HPC) and the Art of Innovation
The challenge for today’s engineering companies is to ensure that creative ideas are efficiently converted into real-world products and delivered at industrial scale.
Don’t Be Too Busy To Improve
It takes an enormous effort to successfully introduce a disruptive technology to a busy workflow. Is the problem that engineers don’t think they need the new software, or are they just too stuck in their ways—or too busy...
So, You’ve Started Simulating—Now What?
The first step is doing the simulations and storing as much about them as you can; automation and consistency are add-on benefits that you shouldn’t overlook
Different Paths Toward Democratization
You can take your pick of revolutionary technologies changing the world today. In the field of design engineering, technologies like simulation, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, additive manufacturing and sensor-laden, connected products are just a few with society-altering promise.
Making Connections and the IoT
Connecting with people is just as important to advancing innovation as technology.
A Legacy of Connected Equipment
The IoT is a new world of connected equipment and data flows, which means that good ideas will come from unexpected sources.
3D Printing a Piece of the Puzzle
3D printing alone won’t change the world, but it’s a growing part of the puzzle for people with the right vision.
What AI Can Do for Electronic Design Automation
AI has begun to come into its own, making tremendous strides over the past few years. But for all its successes, applications of AI-like machine learning, neural networks and deep learning have been slow to find a place in electronic...
Calculation Management Done Right
For many projects, technical calculations may not be managed with the same attention as other intellectual property. What’s often missing is calculation management, a process that treats calculations like the vital, valuable company assets they are.
FEA Demos and Benchmarks
If a classical solution can be emulated using FEA, then it’s a good check of the software and our analysis skills.
Star Rapid and Star Trek: Inspiring a Generation of Engineers
Star Trek and the iconic culture that it created offered a glimpse into what the future might hold for technology and humanity alike.
Grassroots Simulation Data Management
From a sea of disconnected information, I had to derive a clear understanding of the analysis objectives and develop an analysis plan.
Ignorance Is a Miss
Data management needs run a broad gamut, from simple file permission controls to full PLM. There are a lot of options in between. It’s also a constantly changing target.
CMMs: A Machining Accuracy Possibility
Coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) are devices that use physical contact or, increasingly, laser scanners or other touchless techniques, to precisely create a digital map of the outside of an object.
