Recent years have generated a burst of new innovation for mechanical CAD applications. Generative Design promises a new way to engineer products. The cloud stands as a new means to collaborate. New modeling approaches promise new, more effective ways of manipulating geometry. 3D printing might upend the traditional approach to design. This bundle of five publications shares educational materials, thought leadership, and findings from recent research studies that allow anyone to get up to speed and gain insight into the future of mechanical design.
Powering Engineering Collaboration across Product Development (Bundle)
Engineering collaboration is a key component of any successful product development process. It occurs between engineers within the same discipline and across disciplines. It happens early and throughout the process as engineers work with procurement agents, tool designers, NC programmers, quality inspectors and more. This bundle includes four publications that share educational materials, thought leadership, and findings from recent research studies on these topics and more.
Realizing Simulation Driven Design (Bundle)
A Simulation-Driven Design strategy offers many benefits. It reduces rounds of prototyping and testing, resulting in hard cost savings. It uncovers design performance issues, allowing engineers to define new solutions early when there are fewer constraints. It allows simulation analysts to focus on the biggest, hardest analyses, allowing them to focus their considerable talents on the most difficult problems. This bundle of five publications shares educational materials, thought leadership, and findings from recent research studies, offering holistic insight into this technology-led initiative.
Digitalization and the Digital Thread: The Foundation of Tech-Led Initiatives (Bundle)
Digitalization and the Digital Thread are two fundamental concepts that enable a wide range of engineering, technology-led initiatives. This bundle includes six publications that offer educational materials, thought leadership, and findings from recent research studies to get anyone oriented on the application of Digitalization and the Digital Thread to the modernization of product development.
The Holistic View of Model-Based Enterprise Initiatives (Bundle)
Model-Based Enterprise initiatives hold great promise. Yet, many have questions before taking action. Are MBE initiatives mainstream? How does an MBD flow from one organization to another? Are suppliers ready now? What more is needed than mechanical CAD? This bundle includes seven publications that present educational materials, thought leadership, and findings from recent research studies to answer those questions. As a result, all gain clarity on MBE initiatives.
