EXALEAD OnePart: More than Just Search

Ahh, part reuse, you’re an old problem. Aren’t you.

In the past two decades, many enterprise systems have sought to address part reuse. We’ve had supplier management systems. We’ve had part categorization systems. We’ve had shape-based search. Yet the problem seems to still persist. Engineers, pressed for time, create new CAD models and release them as part of new design projects. Part numbers proliferate. Opportunities for part number reduction sail by. Opportunities for larger volume discounts with suppliers slip away. The enterprise groans.

Granularity and Integration Aren’t Diametrically Opposed

Who doesn’t like a little debate? For some, I know, it’s uncomfortable. But honestly, it’s a good thing. It let’s you refine your logic, clarify your position and point out misinterpretations. Furthermore, it’s fun! Really, a little tête-à-tête keeps you sharp. With all that in mind, I owe a thanks to Oleg Shilovitsky, because yesterday, he …

The Diverging State of PDM

A little more than a year ago, I wrote post titled The PDM Revolution is Upon Us, Brought to You by CAD in the Cloud, which postulated what would happen as some PLM providers moved their CAD offerings to the cloud. Fast forward to today, and things haven’t quite played out as I suggested.

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.

Dassault Systèmes Acquires FE-DESIGN: What Does It Mean for the 3DEXPERIENCE Vision?

Another day, another acquisition. I have to admit though, I find this one intriguing. Not because the SIMULIA brand feels relatively complete already from a portfolio perspective. More from the perspective of what it means for their whole 3DEXPERIENCE vision. There’s actually a lot there. Read on and I’ll give you my perspective.

In the 3DEXPERIENCE Forum, Vision Takes Center Stage

Well, regardless of whatever else you have to say about Dassault Systèmes, you have to admit: they have vision. Last week, Dassault Systèmes invited their customers as well as many media and analyst folks down to Orlando for something called the 3DEXPERIENCE Forum. There are a few really well written summaries of the event and the message from DS, but in short, it was this: an experience is what occurs during the development of a product. And that experience needs to be supported across many different software systems and applications like ENOVIA, CATIA, SIMULIA and the like.

Oracle’s Fourth Evolution of PLM?

A few weeks ago, I came across a tweet that caught my eye. I thought that looked pretty interesting. I hadn’t heard from the Oracle folks in a while. So I then headed over to look at their blog post. I started reading and, apparently, they’ve been talking about this ‘Product Value Chain’ concept, which …
