INDYCAR Takes Autodesk’s 3D Software for a Spin
In late November 2012, at the time of the Autodesk University 2012 conference, Autodesk, the leader in cloud-based design and engineering software, and INDYCAR,

auto cad architecture  and INDYCAR , the auto racing sanctioning body behind popular racing events such as the Indianapolis 500 ,  have signed a three-year technology partnership . INDYCAR already employs Autodesk’s desktop-based software within its operations for a variety of important functions. For example, the organization uses AutoCAD software to create detailed garage layouts before each event, which helps improve the logistics of load-in and load-out at venues. In addition, the detailed drawings that are used for

ERP for Services (Non-manufacturing)

Typically, ERP systems designed for services industries offer modules that provide back-office support, customer relationship management, time management, expense management, resource management, and project management capabilities. Depending on the vertical market, additional industry-specific functionality may be included to address unique business requirements. Consequently, project-centric systems for accounting, architecture, construction, engineering, and professional services industries will support project management functionality; whereas health care, field service, distribution, and government systems will support functionality unique to those vertical markets.

Dassault Systemes’ strength in the automotive sector comes from a number of reasons, one of which is its long history of serving the industry, especially on the design side. CATIA has established itself as the design package most chosen for  body in white (BIW)  design, and the vendor has been making moves to stay ahead of the competition.

Delivery Architecture - What it Means...


Once we cross the border of the enterprise, traditional enterprise-centric systems fail to provide visibility or a way to understand and act, all in sync with our supply chain partners. This is why the delivery architecture of an application is critical, especially for addressing multi-enterprise interactions.

CAD-Centric PLM, ERP-Centric PLM, and Organic PLM: What’s Right for You? - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series started with the assertion that product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions are becoming increasingly important to enterprises, to a strategic degree. However, not all PLM products are created equal, especially in light of their different origins. My post then explored the strengths and weaknesses of the first group of PLM solutions: those coming from

Then I analyzed the advantages of the second PLM group: the Big Three  enterprise resource planning (ERP)  vendors, who are SAP, Oracle , and Infor . NGC Software would be an ERP and PLM combination in the fashion/apparel industry. One advantage that ERP providers have over PLM vendors with a CAD background is that their vast suites of business applications allow users to integrate product development with program Read More

Architecture-Centered Information Systems In The Manufacturing Domain - Part V - Applying the Methodology


Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current and future needs of the business organization. Managing software projects using architecture-centered methodologies must be an intentional step in the process of deploying information systems - not an accidental by-product of the software acquisition and integration process.

What Could Be Some New Frontiers for Large CAD/PLM Providers?


My attendance of Siemens’ two-day product lifecycle management (PLM) analyst summit in the late summer of 2011 was like trying to drink from a fire hose. Even without the plant automation and manufacturing execution system (MES) discussion (which was also included in the 2010 event), there was an abundance of products and related information, and I am still trying to wrap my mind around the main

In general, I would expect big PLM/CAD vendors to continue to buy their way into smaller sub-vertical segments to achieve incremental growth. The Vistagy and Active acquisitions by Siemens were along those lines, and can be seen as an attempt to penetrate industries and regions where it has had less success in the past (i.e., aerospace and defense [A&D], where PTC is still the leader). To clarify further, PTC may have a Read More

How Many Napkins Have to Die Needlessly? A Case for Business Architecture
