Modelon’s Fit in Systems Simulation

One-dimensional (1D) simulations of systems offer a means to digitally troubleshoot behaviors long be building an expensive high-stakes prototype. But how do you model the system without the right components? That’s where Modelon comes in. Chad Jackson provides an overview of this solution in our latest video.

Aras Innovator’s Engineering Enhancements

As a pure-play PLM provider, you might think that Aras might not be investing heavily in engineering capabilities. That, however, would be incorrect. In this video, Chad Jackson talks about how Aras has invested in simulation and system engineering capabilities for Innovator.

Solid Edge’s Database-less Data Management: How Does It Work?

Solid Edge has forgone the use of a database to manage their files. Instead, they are using the Windows Indexer in order to organize their system. Chad Jackson takes us through the reason behind the switch and the benefits of being database-less.

Realizing Simulation Driven Design (Bundle)

A Simulation-Driven Design strategy offers many benefits. It reduces rounds of prototyping and testing, resulting in hard cost savings. It uncovers design performance issues, allowing engineers to define new solutions early when there are fewer constraints. It allows simulation analysts to focus on the biggest, hardest analyses, allowing them to focus their considerable talents on the most difficult problems. This bundle of five publications shares educational materials, thought leadership, and findings from recent research studies, offering holistic insight into this technology-led initiative.

Agile for Hardware Development: Implications of Sprints and Working Prototypes

Agile seems to be making progress in the development processes for hardware. In this video, Chad Jackson talks about the implications of springs and working prototypes. They take on an entirely new meaning when #agile is applied to hardware.

The Need for Validation in MBE Initiatives

What is model validation? How does it fit into Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) initiatives? It is actually more important than you think. Chad Jackson provides an overview of this complex topic in our latest video.

Stratasys and Multi-Material 3D Printing

What if you could 3D print a model made of multiple, interwoven materials? Chad Jackson discusses this idea and how it might be practically implemented in the real world.

Engineering Education Now: the Chief Technology Officer

As products become more and more infused with technology, the C-suite’s Chief Technology Officer role only becomes more key.

Soft Returns in Cost Justifications

In covering technology-led engineering initiatives, we get asked a lot of questions about return-on-investment. Many include soft returns, focusing on productivity. In this video, Chad Jackson points out the shortcomings in soft returns.
