  • (Abstract) Complexity is a fact of life in business today. Many companies are adopting product lifecycle management (PLM) strategies and solutions to help manage this complexity. Dassault Systèmes (3DS), a long-time leader in the PLM market, is now focusing their efforts on “3DEXPERIENCE,”an approach to product development, manufacturing, and deployment that leverages their strengths in 3D and industry specific business processes. This paper focuses on how some of their key customers are using 3DS solutions to address important problems in developing complex products, using complex supply chains, to support global markets.

Product Lifecycle Management and the Data Deluge

  • Transforming Data to Enhance Performance
  • November 2012
  • (Abstract) Many of the world’s leading product development companies rely on product lifecycle management (PLM) strategies and enabling solutions to get the right product to market, at the right time, and at the right cost. While this works reasonably well for the volume and type of information developed across the extended enterprise, companies also use information from the Internet to support their product development processes. The increasing volume and growth rate of data applicable to PLM is requiring companies to seek new methods to turn that data into actionable intelligence that can enhance business performance. This paper focuses on the intersection of PLM and what has come to be known as “Big Data,” and how search-based techniques are showing promise to help address the big data problem.

Beyond Simulation Data Management

  • Why Innovative Approaches are Required
  • September 2012
  • (Abstract) The importance and the use of simulation in product development are increasing, as companies are making more product development decisions based on simulation. The number of simulations will dramatically increase as techniques for optimization and robust engineering are adopted. The resulting massive increase in simulation data raises concerns about our capability to deal with it effectively. Simulation analytics provides a way to extract relevant information and understand trends across hundreds or thousands of simulations. Companies need to adopt improved business practices to manage their simulation data, and to guard against warehousing data that may, in fact, never be accessed.

CAD Selection Considerations: Complex Geometry

  • Dealing with Sophisticated Freeform Shapes
  • September 2012
  • (Abstract) Product aesthetics - characterized by form, dimension, color, and material can help drive sales by appealing to a consumer’s senses and eliciting pride in ownership. Eye-catching and valued products are commonly composed of sleek, curved silhouettes generated by the product designer modeling sophisticated surfaces. However, the complexity of freeform geometry can be challenging to both the designer and their CAD software, often forcing limitations on the desired product form. When selecting a CAD solution, prospective users must diligently assess their requirements for sophisticated shape definition and focus their choice on a solution that delivers satisfactory results and allows for robust interaction.
  • (Abstract抄訳) 製品の形状、寸法、色、そして素材による外観上の美しさは、消費者の感性に訴え、所有欲をかき立てることで販売促進につながります。人目を引く評価の高い製品は、一般的に製品設計者がモデリングする洗練された曲面で生み出された、光沢がある、曲線的なシルエットで構成されています。ところが、自由な形状のジオメトリの複雑さは、設計者とCADソフトウェアの両方にとって困難にもなり、要望する製品形状が制限されることもよくあります。CADソリューションの選択にあたって、将来のユーザとなる方は、洗練され、込み入った形状の定義に対する要件を入念に評価・判断し、満足のいく結果を答申し、堅牢な操作の可能なソリューションを選定するよう集中しなければなりません。

CAD Selection Considerations: Complex Geometry

  • Dealing with Large Data Structures
  • August 2012
  • (Abstract) Design engineers in all industry verticals report that their products continue to grow in sophistication. The added complexity in product models driven by market demand for enhanced capabilities and customization often results in larger and more complex 3D model assemblies. Design engineers find their current CAD solution can be challenged by the large data structures that must be defined, loaded, and manipulated. When selecting a CAD solution, prospective users must assess their requirements for dealing with large product assemblies and focus their choice on a solution that delivers sufficient performance and interaction.
  • (Abstract抄訳) どの業界の設計技術者も、製品が高度に洗練し複雑さを増し続けていると報告しています。機能増強とカスタマイズに対する市場の需要というもので、製品モデルの複雑さが増していることが、より大規模でより複雑な3Dモデルアセンブリになる結果となっていることも少なくありません。設計技術者は、大規模なデータ構造の定義、読み込み、操作が、現行のCADソリューションにとって負担になっていると感じています。CADソリューションの選択にあたって、将来のユーザとなる方は、大規模な製品アセンブリの処理に対する自身の要件を評価・検討し、十分なパフォーマンスと操作性 (interaction) を提供するソリューションを選定するよう集中しなければなりません。

CAD Selection Considerations: Multi-CAD Management

  • Dealing with Third-Party CAD Data
  • July 2012
  • (Abstract) The competitive landscape demands that product developers focus on productivity. They can no longer afford to recreate product models that were created in a different CAD solution than their own chosen design suite. Given dispersed work groups, acquisitions, and interaction with the supply chain, multi-CAD environments are common and expected. When selecting a modeling solution, prospective users must assess their needs for importing alternative CAD data formats in a manner that provides for a smooth transition and the ability to manipulate and edit imported model geometry.
  • (Abstract抄訳) 市場競争が激化しつつあるため、製品開発者は生産性への注力を求められています。製品開発者は、もはや自分が選んだ設計スイートとは異なるCADソリューションで作成された製品モデルを作成し直している余裕はありません。地理的に分散した作業グループ、企業買収、およびサプライチェーンとの相互関係から、マルチCAD環境は普通に想定される状況です。モデリングソリューションの選定において、将来のユーザになる方は、別のCADデータフ形式を円滑に移行できる形でインポートする必要性と、インポートされたモデルのジオメトリを操作し、編集できる能力とを評価する必要があります。

CAD Selection Considerations: Design Changes

  • Dealing with Rapid Changes to Models
  • June 2012
  • (Abstract) Innovation in product development relies heavily on the fundamental engineering cycle of modify and improve. Most new products are built from changes made to existing products. The modeling tools most beneficial to product designers must align to that cycle and should contain a wealth of rapid and flexible editing methods. When selecting a modeling suite, prospective users must assess their past New Product Introduction experiences and compile a list of their most important and impactful needs.
  • (Abstract抄訳) 製品開発におけるイノベーションは、修正ならびに改善・改良の基本的なエンジニアリング・サイクルに大きく依存しています。ほとんどの新製品は既存の製品に変更を加えることで作られています。そのサイクルに適合し、迅速で柔軟な編集手段を豊富に備えたモデリングツールは、製品設計者にとって非常に役立つものになります。モデリングスイートの選定にあたって、将来のユーザとなる方は、自身の過去の新製品導入時の経験を評価・検討し、最も重要で影響の大きいニーズを一覧化する必要があります。

Executing Effectively from Design to Manufacturing

  • “SolidWorks’ support for product manufacturing”
  • June 2012
  • (Abstract) Over the years SolidWorks has developed significant support for transitioning products from design to manufacturing. Today, many new capabilities have been built into SolidWorks to support the creation of information that is necessary when establishing efficient manufacturing processes and assuring that products can be produced profitably. While SolidWorks continues to provide geometric check functionality for plastic parts, cast parts, and sheet metal parts—it now features a new costing tool that provides automated cost estimation capabilities and SolidWorks DFMXpress, a tool that checks designs for manufacturability.

Application Migration & Application Integration

  • “New Strategies for PLM Deployments”
  • May 2012
  • (Abstract) Application migration becomes a fact of life for all companies as they move from legacy to newer applications and as they share data with suppliers and customers. The challenges of migrating data are myriad - data has to be reformatted so that receiving applications can use it, it has to conform to security rules, a mapping of data may be required so that it can be properly placed into a new application, and the data has to be cleansed so that it retains its value and integrity as it is moved. This is a complex task that requires a migration / integration infrastructure that supports multiple migration strategies as well as the capability to rapidly connect applications without the need for extensive programming while honoring each application’s security logic. The eQube-MI solution from eQ Technologic provides such a framework for supporting the complexity of data migrations as well as enterprise-wide application integrations. This paper describes its capabilities and how industrial companies have been using eQube-MI to facilitate their application migration and integration needs.

The Next Industrial Revolution

The Next Industrial Revolution

  • Thriving in the Global Industrial Machinery Market
  • January 2012
  • Introduction - The road to economic development in today’s global economy is paved with success in manufacturing. A solid domestic manufacturing base provides good jobs and a path upwards for both citizens and the countries in which they live. Manufacturing matters because it creates more economic activity inside and outside the manufacturing sector than comparable activity in almost any other major sector. As with many markets, industrial machinery companies increasingly face global competition, requiring them to optimize almost all aspects of their businesses. Successful competitive companies are using product lifecycle management (PLM) as a means to this end. CIMdata defines PLM as a strategic business approach that applies a consistent set of business solutions in support of the collaborative creation, management, dissemination, and use of product definition information across the extended enterprise. PLM spans from product concept to end of life, integrating people, processes, business systems, and information. PLM forms the product information backbone for a company and its extended enterprise.The focus of this paper is on the major business issues faced by companies in the industrial machinery market, and the keys to success in applying PLM-enabling solutions to achieve business and market success.
  • Introduction抄訳 - 今日のグロ−バル経済における経済発展への道は、結局は製造での成功ということになります。堅実な国内製造業の基盤というものは、国民そして彼らが住んでいる国々のいずれにも満足できる仕事と上昇思考 (path upwards) を提供します。製造業というものは、比較可能な他の主なほぼあらゆる領域での活動よりも製造業領域の内外のさらなる経済活動を創り出すことで、重要なものです。多くの市場と同様に、産業機械の企業は、社のビジネスのほぼすべての面にわたって最適化することを求められるグローバルな競争にますます直面します。成功して競争力の高い会社は、この最後の手段として製品ライフサイクルマネージメント (PLM – Product Lifecycle Management) を使用しています。CIMdataでは、PLMを企業とその関連企業 (Extended Enterprise) の至るところで、製品の定義情報のコラボレーティブな生成、マネージメント、配布、そして利用をサポートするビジネスソリューションの首尾一貫したビジネスソリューションを適用する戦略的なビジネスアプローチとして定義しています。PLMは人々、プロセス、ビジネスシステム、そして情報をインテグレーションし、製品のコンセプトから終焉に及びます。PLMは、企業とその関連企業 (Extended Enterprise) のための製品情報のバックボーンを成すものです。
