Siemens PLM Analyst Conference 2014—Blending Virtual and Real Worlds—Part One
Siemens’ new “realize innovation” strategy is an evolution of what has been in the works at Siemens PLM Software for some time. The vendor has been working hard

3d virtual worlds  use point cloud libraries, 3D printing, and other intelligent modeling tools (that accurately represent what is real and simulate what is possible) to go to-and-fro between virtual simulation and (now much more affordable) real-life plant validation, and then go back to the virtual world to adjust assumptions (and do as much round-tripping as is necessary). Intelligent system engineering models must always be up to date throughout the entire lifecycle, including product design, production planning, produc

Learning Management Suite (LMS)

These are tools for managing, creating, scheduling training or learning in your organization. The terminology varies from vendor to vendor. Learning management systems (LMS) typically help to manage both classroom and on-line learning. They do not normally include content creation or management tools but may in some cases. Some LMSs may manage just classroom or just e-learning rather than both. Some LMSs may also include content authoring and managment and virtual classrooms. Learning content management systems (LCMS) emphasize the management of content for courses/training/learning. In most cases, they include content authoring tools. In some cases, they may also include some of the features of LMSs. Content authoring tools are often provided as part of an LCMS. They may also be stand-alone products. Virtual classrooms (web conferencing tools) normally are separate third party offerings but may be included as part of a suite of tools. Suites of tools include features of at least two or more of the above categories. While some companies offer just LMS or LCMS systems others offer suites of products, which provide all or most of the features of the other tools. Suites combine several capabilities of learning management--usually two or more of the following: learning management, classroom training management, e-learning management, custom content creation, learning content management, learning object repositories, or virtual classrooms.
