Is PLM A Never-Ending Journey?

Some suggest that the ongoing expansion of PLM can go on forever in the context of continuous improvement. Chad Jackson gives his perspective on this controversial question.

Wincom: What is it? What’s the value?

Most companies are going to customize PLM to some extent. The question becomes how do you manage and update that customization when you upgrade to new releases of your PLM system. Wincom provides a cloud solution to manage customizations for PTC Windchill that’s unique. Watch an overview by Chad Jackson in the video.

Cross-Probing with NX, Capital, and Xpedition

Not long ago, Siemens PLM Software and Mentor Graphics announced integrations between NX, their Mechanical CAD application, Capital, their harness design ECAD application, and Xpedition, their board design ECAD application. There’s an infrequently cited capability there called interactive highlighting or cross-probing. In this video, Chad Jackson provides an overview of what it is and why it is important.

The State of Simulation Driven Design

Have we made the transition to using simulation to drive design decisions? Chad Jackson shares some research that says we’re not quite there yet.

NX and 3D Printing Analysis: What’s Unique?

One of the big challenges with metal 3D printing is avoiding part warpage due to shrinkage. Siemens PLM Software has developed some interesting and unique capabilities to address this problem, even though many other software applications offer similar functionality. Find out more in this video.

Airshaper: What is it? What’s the value?

Is aerodynamic performance important for your product? If so, there’s a new, quick, easy way to analyze a design’s performance in a wind tunnel environment. In this video, Chad Jackson provides an overview of AirShaper #cloud based #CFD #engineering #analysis offering.

Fluid Flow and Generative Design in NX

Can you incorporate fluid flow analysis into generative design? The answer is yes, and Chad Jackson is here to talk about how.

Does Generative Design Deliver Productivity Gains?

Generative Design uses a variety of algorithms to automatically produce mechanical designs. So in the worst case, it should deliver some kind of productivity boost, right? Well, according to Chad Jackson, it’s not that simple. Watch to get a little more insight on the hidden effort behind Generative Design.

Elysium’s Support of MBD Validation

Elysium provides a variety of solutions to enable Model-Based Enterprise initiatives. In this video, Chad Jackson talks to their validation and conversion tools. Watch for insight into their solutions.
