System Design

What is Esteco modeFRONTIER and VOLTA?

Let’s talk about Esteco and their products. There are two main products, modeFRONTIER and VOLTA. They serve different purposes, but basically they’re both all about simulation automation and simulation data management.

What Are ModelCenter’s Capabilities?

Can you integrate simulation automation and systems engineering? Let’s talk about that next with Phoenix Integration’s ModelCenter. All right. So let’s talk about the integration between systems engineering and simulation automation. Now, this review actually ties into a series that we’re running right now that looks at how do you realize value from simulation-driven design? …

MBSE and Virtual Commissioning: Do the Two Intersect?

The engineers who design production systems are not strangers to complexity. This raises the question: Can systems engineering be applied to the development of production systems? Let’s explore how, by discussing systems engineering and model-based system engineering.

Making the Case: MBSE versus Spreadsheets and Documents

While the set of practices called systems engineering are a boon to cross-disciplinary collaboration, technology has been slow to catch up. Without a new way to collaborate, engineers use tools familiar to them—spreadsheets and documents. But they no longer need to rely on those outdated tools.

CONTACT Software: More Than Another PLM Solution

Do we need another PLM solution in the marketplace? It seems like a pretty crowded field. Why would another solution, like CONTACT Software, really be any different? Let’s table the discussion about whether we need another one and talk about the company first.  Organic Product Development First off, CONTACT Software is not a public company; …

Onscale: What is Simulation-as-a-Service?

What are the benefits of OnScale’s Simulation-as-a-Service solution? In this video, Chad Jackson discusses its capabilities and how its’ unique licensing/pricing model enables innovation.

Altair Knowledge Works: Applying Artificial Intelligence And Machine Learning To Engineering Simulation

How does the newly announced Altair Knowledge Works product use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in simulation to improve the design process? In this video, Chad Jackson talks about how these technologies can lead to new product innovation, reduced design time, and better product performance.

What’s The Best Way To Share Simulation Results? Let’s Talk About VCollab As An Option

Today’s process of sharing simulation results between analysts, executives, and engineers can be inefficient and time consuming. In this video, Chad Jackson reviews VCollab’s solution.

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.
