Insights from Research: Finding and Accessing Information in Engineering

I think we all know that engineers use a lot of different information to make design decisions. And the big question is, how do they find that information, and how do they access it? Well, this year, we conducted some research to look into the answers.

Is the Smart, Connected Product Trend Driving Modular Design?

So, let’s talk about the smart connected products trend and how IoT connectivity actually might force a lot of companies towards modularity and platform design. If a company is developing multiple products that are smart and connected, you have to think, “Well, what’s the common platform they’re all connecting to?”

Digital Twins: Why? What’s the Application? What’s the Value?

So what is the value behind a digital twin?

When I am talking about digital twin, I’m talking about feeding virtual sensor data from simulations to your IoT platform. So you have a real-time mimic of your physical product.

The PTC and Microsoft Partnership: What’s involved?

About a year ago, PTC and Microsoft announced a close partnership, focusing on Azure, Thingworx and Vuforia. In this video, we offer some insight into what exactly is involved in the partnership and the value behind it.

Prototyping Your IoT Platform

Can you virtually prototype an #IoT platform for a smart, connected product with a #DigitalTwin? That’s the topic Chad Jackson takes on in our latest video.

PTC and Hexagon: Diverging Views of IoT

PTC and Hexagon both talked a lot about IoT in their conferences. But how they talked about them were dramatically different. This post provides a quick summary of how different they were and a little advice on how to apply IoT to your company.

Business Takeaways from LiveWorx’s IoT Panel

At PTC’s Liveworx back in June, a group of companies that had deployed IoT initiatives came together for a panel. I was keen to hear their advice on what to do what not to do when pursuing an IoT effort. This post summarizes my biggest takeaways.

What is a Virtual Sensor?

Before we dive into virtual sensors, we need to cover some foundational concepts around the Digital Twin. With this technology, you have sensory data that you’re capturing from a product, and you’re feeding it into a simulation. The simulation will be running very fast, and will often be a systems simulation; a 1D simulation that …
