Industrial machinery engineering, including machine building for batteries, has long been complex, but technological advancements have driven that complexity to new levels. Today’s machines incorporate sensors, software, and smart features in addition to their mechanical, electronic, and electrical components. With these advancements come fresh challenges. Companies must coordinate the work of numerous engineering teams across domains throughout the design process—while also working closely with external stakeholders and their own procurement, manufacturing, and service departments.
Automobiles are growing more advanced—and more complex. Demand for features like autonomous navigation and smart functionality, as well as growing interest in electric vehicles (EVs), have introduced numerous engineering and design challenges. One such challenge is coordinating the efforts of engineering teams across domains.
The purpose of this eBook is to offer insight into topics that fall beneath the advanced machine engineering umbrella. It starts by looking at the constraints on today’s engineers and the effect they have on design quality. Next, it delves into generative design, offering details on the technology’s use and technical considerations, as well as its application to concept design and detailed design. It finishes by taking a close look at the two-application and single-application solutions that are currently available.
Traditional mechanical products have changed completely over the last few years. Once, these products were standalone assemblies, primarily composed of mechanical components with some electronics.
Now, mechanical products have evolved into complex and interconnected systems.
For consumers, the opportunities are endless. But engineers and designers must grapple with new, significant challenges to their product development processes.
This brief reviews those challenges and reveals the emerging cloud- based collaborative approaches and technologies that can minimize disruption during this period of ongoing product evolution.
Lifecycle Insights conducted the 2022 Engineering Strategies for Small and Mid-Sized Companies Study, a survey-based worldwide research project. The study’s findings reveal organizations’ biggest challenges and their plans for the future.
This eBook shares the study findings along with recommendations about how to formulate successful strategies to improve engineering and shift towards a profitable future.
Manufacturers are adopting solutions to support the digital transformation (DX) initiatives that improve their processes and make them more competitive. This trend is particularly evident in product development, where many companies are turning to product lifecycle management (PLM). PLM enables companies to manage processes and information across the product lifecycle.
This eBook demystifies cloud-based SaaS PLM, showcases its advantages, and answers questions managers often have.
