Revving the Creativity Engine: Software Makes It All Happen
Increasingly, manufacturing begins not in a factory, but in a computer. Whether it’s a completely new sports car designed by thousands of enthusiasts in a “co-creation” environment or the organisation of the millions of lines of code behind most innovations in production-line cars, software is where the action is.

Switch to Direct Modeling Speeds Furniture Maker's CAD Workflow
Kimball International moves to Solid Edge with synchronous technology and gains shorter design times and simplified reuse of legacy data.
Meshing Your Design for Analysis: Which Path to Take?
Automation makes the job easier, but flexible options still rule. Whether generating ballpark figures or finely detailing nonlinear responses, engineers are increasingly using simulation software to analyze mechanical design behavior. A necessary part of the process requires subdividing the design into a mesh of 2D or 3D elements defined by nodes and closely following the geometry. This task can be tackled in one of three ways.
Siemens PLM Software Walks the Walk with Openness Promise
For those who think Siemens PLM Software’s talk about openness is just talk, it pays to consider its latest announcements, that while seemingly unrelated, seem to go a long way in underscoring its commitment to the much discussed strategy.
How Two College Students Created a Prosthetic Arm for an Eight Year-Old
Daniel Wilson wanted a prosthetic to let him ride a bike and swing a bat (and he wanted it to be red), so two engineering students found an ingenious way to make one for him.
Siemens Technology Stack Takes the Sting Out of PLM
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) has always been a tough pill for enterprises to swallow, even for the largest companies in sectors like automotive and Aerospace & Defense (A&D), which have been among the earliest adopters of the technology. While historically, there's been no shortage of user interface enhancements and packaged templates and workflow customizations to ease deployment and improve accessibility, companies have continued to struggle to squeeze value out of PLM beyond its core roots as a souped-up repository for managing engineering data and change orders.
Siemens NX 8.5 Reduces Time to Market
Siemens PLM Software has released NX 8.5, which includes extensive customer-driven enhancements and new capabilities that provide increased flexibility and productivity across product engineering and manufacturing to help reduce time to market, the company says.
Design Software Helps to Land Curiosity on Mars
Early last month, after an epic 8½ month voyage through the inner Solar System, NASA’s Curiosity rover touched down on the surface of Mars. Described by the space agency’s leadership as the most challenging robotic mission in its history, Curiosity’s journey to the red planet was a dramatic illustration of one of the great truisms of space travel: the success or failure of years of engineering effort frequently boils down to a breathless few minutes as the landing site comes into view.
Siemens PLM - We're Just One Big Happy Family
In the race to be everything to everyone, Siemens PLM may be winning. The company known best for NX and Teamcenter was riding high on the shoulders of Siemens AG, the German juggernaut that seems to make just about everything. Maybe not cars or airplanes, but so much of what goes inside them.
Siemens PLM Software Introduces RobotExpert Software
RobotExpert expands Siemens PLM Software's digital manufacturing solutions which include its Tecnomatix portfolio for digital manufacturing, automation and simulation. It enables the design, simulation, optimization and offline programming of robotic applications to maximize the speed, flexibility and operation of automated systems.

Automating Wind Blade Development From Root to Tip
By adopting and executing a product development process that integrates design with performance simulation to find problems before they occur, engineers can avoid blade failure in their designs.
Simulation, Creation and Automation: A New Production Plant is Fully Optimized Before Construction
For the Siemens AG Energy Sector, a supplier of products, solutions and services for power generation, transmission and distribution, as well as for the production, conversion and transport of oil and gas, Plant Simulation software allowed them to lower costs and eliminate bottlenecks - all before construction of a new manufacturing plant began.
Synchronous Technology Sheds Light on Surgical Laser Design
This article describes how Energist Group in Nyack, N. Y., recently moved from several different CAD packages to standardize on one. The intent was to improve the design and manufacture of its surgical lasers and light-based devices for hair-removal and skin treatments.
Composites for Complex Curvatures
Composites have long been used in aerospace but now a number of other industries - notably commercial automotive – are following. However, while both industries are becoming increasingly dependent on composites, these high tech materials are used very differently within aerospace and automotive. Cross fertilization of ideas does occur, but the two industries operate under very different criteria as discussed in this article.
On a Mission to Mars
This article discusses how engineers designed and tested the latest Mars rover.
Siemens PLM: “Unreserved Support” for PLM Openness Codex
In this interview Siemens PLM Software CEO Chuck Grindstaff discusses his belief in open systems as well as upcoming new products, the changes in automakers’ PLM needs and the impact of new mobile technologies.
Software Enables Submarine Shipyard’s Composites-for-Metal Effort
When Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft GmbH looked for a software solution to reduce the risk of using composites for a greater range of thicker parts, FiberSIM software from VISTAGY enabled its engineers to develop initial designs more quickly and to better understand the impact of design changes.
Composites in Manufacturing
This article demonstrates how Vistagy specialized engineering software can close the loop between design and analysis in aerospace applications and reap the benefits of composite materials.
One Size Does Not Fit All When It Comes to Composites
This article discusses the need for industry-specific solutions that has led suppliers of composites engineering software to evolve their products, addressing emerging challenges with expanding capabilities to model the diverse set of materials and processes that are being employed and developed by the automotive industry today.
