While CAD involves the use of high-resolution graphics in product design activities, allowing the quick evaluation and modification of the designer's intent, PDM systems were originally developed as merely vaults for storing and updating data. These on-line vaults replaced paper-based processes and information storage with a single, centralized data repository that enables authorized users throughout a company to access and update current product information, while ensuring they Read More

Breaking Down Information Silos Between Manufacturing and Design: A New Approach to CAD/ERP Data Integration

cad opensource  A New Approach to CAD/ERP Data Integration What would you do if a critical error occurred during production—all because the wrong data was input into your enterprise resource planning (ERP) system? You’d probably be asking “how could this happen?” The ability to communicate information between teams can mean the difference between production success and failure. Avoid these snafus with a system that can integrate the data of both the design and ERP systems. Read More
3D Systems to Acquire Geomagic: Set to Capture Market Share of Scan-to-CAD Market
Recently, 3D Systems signed a definitive agreement to acquire Geomagic. Geomagic develops the software that is used for scanning physical objects into 3D data

Though Geomagic by itself does not offer traditional CAD packages, it does offer software for scanning physical objects. Geomagic’s rich product portfolio includes its acquisition of Sensable, a company that developed haptic feedback tools (tools that give users the feel of sculpting forms). Laser scanning has gained popularity in many different Read More

cad opensource  in Payment Models for CAD Deployments Given the  recent desktop virtualization move for PTC Creo , it will be interesting to watch whether PTC will start offering subscriptions for some Creo apps (and Dassault Systèmes for SolidWorks ). This is especially interesting in light of the recent move of  Siemens Solid Edge to subscription licensing , and also since Autodesk is now offering its desktop and other design products on a pay-as-you-go basis . In terms of comparing 3D computer-aided design (CAD) Read More

Solumina will also integrate to Cirrus’ current ERP system (reportedly QAD Enterprise Applications ) to create one integrated manufacturing enterprise. Solumina might have competed here with such typical solutions as  Camstar and CIMx Software .

What Can Aras’ Selection as PLM Enhancement at MAN Diesel & Turbo Tell Us?

The company also required the capability to manage the engineering bill of materials (eBOM) and the manufacturing bill of materials (mBOM).   The implementation of the PTC solution has reportedly increased Hitachi’s visibility into daily workload on the shop floor by improving the accuracy of bill of material (BOM) information, resulting in part Read More

But as in the case of rigid and monolithic old ERP replacements (e.g., see  Workday ’s recent ongoing success ), the fact is that some companies are switching PLM systems when they have a failure condition. I believe that the economic/political reality moving forward into the future will make the multi-million dollar big Read More
HD-PLM, Exalead, and Project Lightning, What Do They Have in Common?
There wasn’t a lack of big news in the product lifecycle management (PLM) industry in the past few weeks. On May 20th, Siemens PLM Software unveiled High

While looking at PTC’s offerings on 2D modeling, direct 3D modeling, parametric 3D modeling, and product data management, it makes sense for PTC to leverage and integrate these existing capabilities. Users will have less concerns on which tool to use and can develop a product in a more natural and intuitive way. So, Siemens PLM wants to provide valuable real-time information; Dassault Systèmes is growing the synergy between search and PLM; and PTC Read More
PLM: A New World of (More) Collaboration and Innovation
It used to be the case that PLM was perceived as being principally about CAD tools and 3D drawings and complex technical specs that no one really understood

cad opensource  as being principally about CAD tools and 3D drawings and complex technical specs that no one really understood except the geekiest of PLM geeks. This perception was justified, to an extent. After all, PLM and CAD tools can be complicated, engineers and designers tend to operate in highly specialized environments, and there's a common misconception that PLM addresses execution rather than innovation. But after attending the PLM Innovation 2012 conference two months ago, I realized that PLM is starting to g Read More
