What is Siemens PLM’s HD-PLM?

HD-PLM is Siemens PLM’s product strategy to access PLM information through 3D models. This posts provides some detail into how it works and the value it provides.

Comet Solutions: Flexible and Robust Simulation Automation?

Comet Solutions provides procedural templates to automate simulations. This post looks closely at the capabilities and advantages this solution provides.

3DEXPERIENCE: I Finally Get It

Since Dassault Systèmes released their announcement 3DEXPERIENCE, many have assumed it was merely a grand vision. It turns out it is something far more tangible.

VCollab: Democratizing Simulation Visualization?

Conducting engineering simulations in today’s business environment can be challenging. Executives often give a begrudging approval to simulation teams to do their work. But its infrequent that those simulation teams are able to expose their work to the broader enterprise. There has been trends more recently, however, to expose simulation results in new and exciting …

Continuous Systems Validation: Implications for Software Solutions

Continuous systems validation brings a whole new level of complication to simulation. In my first post in this series, we looked at how designs progress in various engineering disciplines. In the second one, we looked at how cross-disciplinary simulations are actually assembled out of these different designs. But furthermore, as the design progresses at the …

Continuous Systems Validation: System Simulation Configurations

  Ready for more system simulation?Well, strap in. This is where things get complicated.In the last post, we dove into the progressive means of representing and assessing designs in mechanical, electrical and software domains. We found that in each discipline, the representations changed. We also found that the means by which each design representation is …

Continuous Systems Validation: Progressive Design Representations

I now have no doubt left in my mind: system simulation is now all the rage. A few weeks ago, I hopped on the bandwagon to write on the topic. I published a post titled Systems Simulation: Far-off Future or Feasible Now? here at the NAFEMs blog. That post focused on how to build a simulation model that incorporates various digital and physical representations from different engineering disciplines. Its complicated stuff in its own right. In that post, I posed the question of whether were close to reality or some future vision.

The Implications of the Cloud for Simulation

All that compute power is enticing, right? It’s a great story. But there’s just one big problem: getting your simulation model into the cloud. And that wouldn’t be a problem if these simulation models weren’t quite so humongous. I mean, you wouldn’t need all that compute power if these simulations were easy to solve, right? …
