Visionary companies will be interested, but only a small percentage of companies will be focused on this topic in the near term. One difference between Dassault and Autodesk I see is that Dassault is still aiming at enterprise customers while making its acquisitions, whereas some of Autodesk's recent deals really have consumers in mind. Dassault Systèmes is trying to 'consumerize' 3D for more than just

All too often, engineering or operations groups will leave IT out of Read More

The Asset Management Benchmark Report: Moving Toward Zero Downtime


Lean manufacturing strategies and ever-lower tolerance for late deliveries are putting pressure on manufacturers to ensure that facilities and equipment operate at peak performance. While some companies are struggling to execute preventive and predictive maintenance procedures, better performers have implemented holistic asset management strategies enabling them to proactively ensure the health of plants, factories, and equipment across global manufacturing networks.

CAD-centric PLM, ERP-centric PLM, and Organic PLM: What's Right for You? - Part 3


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

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

PTC Creo 3.0—CAD Interoperability


CAD software is changing to make data reusable and collaboratively shared in the customer/supplier’s native format (most commonly 3D CAD formats). At the forefront of these changes is product development software player PTC, and the company’s 3D product design solution Creo, now on its third version, which offers powerful CAD interoperability and design and efficiency improvements.

Breaking Down Information Silos Between Manufacturing and Design: 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.

Digital KVM Switches Are Quite Popular-Analog KVM Switches Still Deserve Respect


Digital keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) switches can be less costly as they rely on existing infrastructure and don’t have circuitry for network conversion. Analog switches cost less per port and are better suited to graphically intense environments. Either type allows increased computer density because relatively few monitors, keyboards, and mouses are needed and because consoles can be outside the data center. Find out more.
