Aberdeen Research: Capture Knowledge to Ensure Simulation Success

As companies struggle to competitively differentiate their products as well as beat their competitors to market, faster decisions within engineering have become increasingly critical to product success. Many have turned to simulation tools for support. However, the expertise required to conduct accurate simulations, combined with increasing product complexity, leaves companies struggling to expand simulation knowledge […]

Students Building the World’s First Heavy Lift Quadcopter

Last year, Nick Conover and three other students at San Jose State University pitched an idea on Kickstarter. The Incredible HLQ (pronounced Hulk) would be an autonomous gasoline-powered 4-rotor helicopter that could carry an unprecedented payload of 50 pounds. Here’s their original pitch: [Ed- their project is now fully funded] A drone engineered to run […]

Four Questions to Ask When Getting Started With Simulation

Many businesses decide that they want to start using simulation — perhaps because a product failed in an unexpected way, or they’re trying a new material or manufacturing process. Designers have taken motion modeling and other CAD techniques as far as they can and now need to add CAE into their process. These designers often […]

Simulating from Craft to Common Use

Simulation Technology

My old Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “craft” as an occupation or trade requiring manual dexterity or artistic skill. That’s how many people see simulation, as a craft that must be mastered and one that is out of reach for most of us. This view led companies to build centers of expertise around CAE where analysts painstakingly develop models […]

Belgium’s TEN Makes PTC Creo Part of their Design Method

Engineering companies sell their services on the basis of several types of expertise. One might be particularly good at government contracts. Another rocks consumer goods. And so on. However, the best of them also sell a deep understanding of processes. If a company has carefully thought out its workflows and communications with clients, it produces […]

Simulation at Work: SmartMetals

Even though our TVs are larger than ever, demand is growing for video walls—those arrays of monitors you see at stadiums, control centers, and airports, looming larger than any human that stands before them. There are a number of advantages to video walls. For example, the monitors can work together to show a large image, […]

Simulation Needs Parametric and Direct Modeling

Simulation software

In recent years, much has been made about the relevance of direct modeling on simulation activities. Somewhere along the way, many have forgotten how parametric modeling is just as important. In this post, we’ll take a look at why simulation activities need to be enabled by both. Direct Modeling for Preparation and Iteration A troublesome […]
