Simulation at Work: GE Healthcare

A little over a week ago, the US Food and Drug Administration gave the green light to GE Healthcare’s new imaging product, the Revolution CT. Like a typical computed tomography scan machine (more commonly called a “CT scan”), the Revolution uses X-rays to capture cross-section images of a body. But now it does it faster, with […]

Pushing Simulation through the Value Pyramid

Simulation pyramid

It’s the perennial question: Who does what? Let’s say you design industrial machinery, such as the device that shapes a potato chip, or a bottle capper, or, as Geoff Hedges recently profiled, a Wave Machine. A significant part of your job is designing the machine so that it’s efficient, it’s cost-effective to operate, and it […]

Free Webinar Series: Learn the Benefits of PTC Simulation Solutions

Problems found earlier in the design process reduce development costs and save time. See how simulating the performance of your design early and often can reduce physical prototyping and enable you to make better design decisions. In just 25 minutes, see how PTC’s simulation solutions can help you accurately: Predict product performance while you design […]

The Rise of the Simulation and Test Executive

Blueprint

Aren’t inter-departmental politics fun? They occur in any organization when resources are few. And since the economic downturn and executive’s turn towards cost control strategies, budgets have been rare resources indeed. In this post, we’ll look at how the often conflicted relationship between simulation and test is taking a friendlier turn, especially under a rising […]

Simplifying Models for Analysis Using the PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension

PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension

Recently, I discussed how the PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension (FMX) makes working with imported CAD data , and accommodating late stage design changes much easier. Today, I’d like to discuss how PTC Creo FMX ( an extension of PTC Creo Parametric, the 3D modeling software) can help simplify models for analysis for both the […]

Simulation at Work: American Wave Machines

In some of our recent articles, analysts and industry watchers talk about simulation tools and how they might be used throughout the design process—from concept to validation. While Chad and Monica look at trends and approaches to simulation-driven design, I’d like to tell you a little more about the companies that use PTC simulation tools together […]

The Splintering Needs of Engineering Simulation

elica_numerica1_0_0--400x300

A couple weeks ago, I found myself in an interesting conversation. I was talking with a software executive who was considering starting up a new software company in the simulation space. His most basic question was “where is the greatest need in simulation today?” I’ll be frank; I struggled to answer. Not because all of […]

Rethinking Simulation: Why your company should take another look

Simulation Technology

Not that long ago, design and simulation were done by different parts of the engineering staff. This made sense because simulation required specialized skills and the tools were hard to use. Moving models from CAD to CAE, simplifying and repairing them, and ensuring that the forces were correct all required an expert’s touch. Each cycle took a […]
