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.
Transforming Global Supplier Collaboration while Securing IP
Suppliers play an increasingly important role in product development. As a result, manufacturers face a crucial question: how do you enable IP secure collaboration? Chad Jackson provides some context and solutions in this webinar.

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.
The Tactical Guide to Deploying MBE Initiatives
Model-Based Enterprise initiatives are ripe with potential. Yet, many struggle to lay out a deployment plan in a logical, rational sequence. This report provides detailed guidance for the initial development of an MBD in engineering all the way to expand it to procurement, tooling design, machining, and inspection.
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.
Cloud Enabled Digital Transformation of Product Development
Day by day, the use of cloud-based solutions is expanding. Is it ready for product development? This report shares findings from Lifecycle Insights’ Cloud Adoption study, identifying the biggest development improvement opportunities where cloud solutions have a fit.
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.
Modular Plant Design: More Variation, Lower Complexity
Modular design approaches allow engineers to increase reuse and customer options simultaneously. But transitioning to this method is not easy. In this webinar, Chad Jackson gives some background on this trend and what technologies act as key enablers.
