moai cad  to Make People More Willing to Share Knowledge in Their PLM Environment In Why Some People Don’t Like PLM , Graham McCall said that some product lifecycle management (PLM) users’ reluctance to share knowledge with others is the obstacle toward higher acceptance of PLM. I thought his point made perfect sense, and my instant reaction was to ask myself: How can this problem be resolved? Ideally, a PLM system is a platform for people to work together. This means that knowledge sharing is mutually

Dassault Systèmes-Expanding Product Development and the 3D Experience


The Dassault Systèmes vision is to enable everyone—from product designers, engineers, and suppliers to end users and their respective communities—to create, share, and experience the three-dimensional virtual world, thereby maximizing the value of their intellectual property and digital assets. In this article, TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic reports on the 3D design tools he recently saw demoed, how they enable collaboration, and their application to manufacturing and other sectors.

moai cad  Systèmes-Expanding Product Development and the 3D Experience To put it mildly, 2011 was not a great year in almost any respect, except for maybe the modest stock market surge and the Boston Bruins Stanley Cup win. More positive economic news is slow coming, but people are still underemployed, even if they are “privileged” to have a job—a few new burger-flipping or shelf-filling jobs here and there are not much to rave about, no matter how honest the work. December 2011 saw a major economic Read More

Servigistics and MCA Solutions Join Forces on "Super Tuesday"




moai cad  and MCA Solutions Join Forces on Super Tuesday It was interesting and perhaps telling that on the so-called “Super Tuesday” on March 6, 2012, when the Republican (GOP) presidential candidates were duking it out in 10 US states, two once-fierce competitors in the spare parts planning & optimization (SPP/O) space decided to merge instead of continuing to bludgeon each other. Indeed, Servigistics and MCA Solutions have competed for virtually every major deal in the space since their Read More

Customization Drives Complexity - Why It's Hard to Design, Sell, and Produce "Simple" Products


It seems counterintuitive, but the process of selling, designing, and producing what appear to be "simple" products becomes surprisingly complex when manufacturers introduce high levels of customization. How can manufacturers of configured products address this complexity to streamline their processes, reduce cost and increase customer responsiveness?
