PLM vs. ALM – Which to use for Electronic Board Systems?

During the development of electronic board systems, printed circuit boards, multi-board systems, and the like (for this discussion they will be called “electronic board systems” to encompass them all), using Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) seemed to be a natural progression. PLM was traditionally used to manage mechanical hardware. It easily became the process for electronic …

From Physical to Digital: How FARO’s 3D Scanning Solutions Improves Product Engineering

In engineering, it is very typical to go from digital to physical. Engineers create digital mockups of their ideas in a 3D CAD solution, then use those mockups to create physical products. Manufacturers do not often consider the reverse process, however. Physical products can be turned into valuable digital models, and 3D scanning allows engineers …

Altimade: Connecting PCB Designers to Suppliers to Expedite Product Development

Ordering and testing a prototype is a key milestone in the development of printed circuit boards (PCB). That prototype is necessary to validate the design and test its performance. But this step can be daunting for many engineering teams.  Ordering a PCB Prototype, a Critical Step Ordering a PCB prototype isn’t as simple as it …

BigLever: Bring Products To Market Faster with a Platform-Modularity Approach

Product-centric and platform-modularity approaches are common methods used to develop products. For companies with only one product, the product-centric approach works well. However, manufacturers with a family of products utilize product line engineering for increased efficiency. Developing products with a platform-modularity approach brings a host of benefits.  Introduction to a Platform-Modularity Approach For many companies, …

The Impact of PTC’s CREO Moving to a Cloud-Based Platform

Over the past few years, PTC has gradually transitioned its offerings to an annual subscription format. As a result, the overwhelming majority of its customers have switched to this recurring revenue model. Now, PTC is hard at work moving its core products to Atlas, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that was acquired as part of Onshape. …

Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE: A Progressive Approach to Modeling and Simulation

In a recent post, we discussed the challenges associated with a traditional approach to simulation where engineers and analysts work in silos using unintegrated tools. When team members can’t collaborate effectively, companies must contend with inaccurate or incomplete data that cause delays and increased costs. In order to address these issues, companies need to take …
