Infor Partners with CAD Service to Enhance EAM Proposition
Infor has announced a worldwide partnership with CAD Service, a provider of computer-aided design (CAD)–led asset management software. CAD Service’s enterprise

cad drawing  (CAD)–led asset management software. CAD Service’s enterprise asset management (EAM) OpenCAD solution is  fully integrated with the Infor EAM application, not a standalone application. The tight integration will help organizations boost asset visibility without the need to run two or more separate systems. EAM OpenCAD supports both DWG (Autodesk Inc) and DGN (Microstation Inc) drawing formats so graphics can be accessed more immediately using the software's integrated auto-discovery capabilities.

Hitachi Rail Adopts PTC PLM Globally


At the upper-end of the product lifecycle management (PLM) software market, brand new deals are rare, and expanding business with existing customers is much more common. To that end, PTC recently announced that Hitachi, Ltd. Rail Systems has selected the PTC Global Product Development solution based on PTC Windchill PLM technology as its single enterprise platform for global product development throughout its railway vehicle engineering and manufacturing business.

The company also required the capability to manage the engineering bill of materials (eBOM) and the manufacturing bill of materials (mBOM).   The implementation of the PTC solution has reportedly increased Hitachi’s visibility into daily workload on the shop floor by improving the accuracy of bill of material (BOM) information, resulting in part inventory level, component, and materials procurement process optimization. The Hitachi manufacturing team is Read More

What Does the “M” in PLM Really Mean?


In the two previous blog posts (What Does the “P” in PLM Really Mean? and What Does the “L” in PLM Really Mean?) I discussed the object being managed within the product lifecycle management (PLM) methodology. Now, it is the time to move on to the last word—“management.” Management is such a general term nowadays, that simply looking at it won’t give you much idea of what it is about in the PLM

cad drawing  such as computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and computer-aided engineering (CAE) are the most direct contributors to the productivity of generating product definition information. However, these are not enough. It is not rare to see a manufacturer send part drawings to a supplier through e-mails and for the latter have a hard time loading the files, or for a design engineer to spend one hour to find an existing drawing that he can simply re-create in half an hour. These two Read More

PTC Creo Elements/Direct 19.0 Is Available


PTC announces the availability of version 19 of its direct modeling computer aided design (CAD) software PTC Creo Elements/Direct. P.J. brings you the details from the PTC Live Global 2014 conference.

The use of optimized design workflows for regularly used features increases productivity. In addition, the introduction of template-based drawing creation enables the reuse of existing Read More

What’s Happening on Your Shop Floor?


While many ERP software companies claim to support manufacturing companies, their solutions do little more than accounting, order entry, and other office tasks. They are not suitable for use on the shop floor. Fortunately, today’s integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems can provide the shop floor control and manufacturing execution systems (MES) functionality that manufacturers need. Find out more.

cad drawing  special feature within your CAD system to number and name each dimension on the part drawing. Then, whenever the drawing is saved, it synchronizes the dimensions and their tolerances to the part specification list, which in turn drives the control plan, checksheet, and data collection systems. The CAD integration subsystem saves you from having to type dimensional data and adds a high degree of advanced integration between engineering, quality and manufacturing.

Facilities Management is Moving Forward with Technology


Information is one of the most valuable resources for facilities management departments, so it’s essential to have a process that lets you achieve full value from it, and to urge your company on from weak paper-prone processes. Facilities management systems can now integrate with other systems. Find out the points you should consider when choosing and implementing a computer-aided facilities management (CAFM) solution.

PTC Live Global 2013: All About Design for “Servitization” —Part Two


Last week on the TEC blog I talked about market shifts and technological changes that are reshaping the competitive landscape for manufacturing firms, based on PTC CEO Jim Heppelmann’s seven trends, which formed the backbone of his keynote presentation at the PTC Live Global 2013 event held in California in June. PTC Live Global also had a companion Service Exchange (formerly Servigistics Exchange

PLM: A New World of (More) Collaboration and Innovation


It used to be the case that PLM was perceived as being principally about CAD tools and 3D drawings and complex technical specs that no one really understood except the geekiest of PLM geeks. This perception was justified, to an extent. After all, PLM and CAD tools can be complicated, engineers and designers tend to operate in highly specialized environments, and there's a common misconception

Even though both speakers approached the topic from different angles, they showed that PLM also faces the same technological disruptions (e.g., cloud, mobile, social media) as any other business software type. But they highlighted the fact that the same technologies are also enablers for innovation and collaboration across the enterprise and even outside its walls. The closing keynote was presented by an astronomer work 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?

cad drawing  customer-specific requirements. By developing CAD product models that incorporate design rules and flexibility, the order-specific design work can be more easily automated. For example, the number and spacing of the grids in a window should be calculated based on the window dimensions, as should the number and location of the window latches. If three-dimensional CAD models are used for these calculations, the engineering automation can also include the dynamic generation of production-ready drawings and Read More

Bentley Extends Commitment to Siemens PLM Software


The 3D computed-aided design (CAD) world continues to be co-opetitive. Many of the situations where fierce competitors end up using each other’s tools in their competing products are circumstantial, i.e., those products were using tools supplied by a software company before it was acquired by a competitor. For example, the Parasolid 3D geometric modeling kernel was developed

For its part, D-Cubed is a geometry constraint solver and a set of calculation libraries that have been modularized and can be used with other Siemens and non-Siemens modules or solutions. It is often used together with Parasolid by CAx developers. The interoperable JT data format is widely used throughout the world for sharing mechanical 3D information among multiple organizations and throughout manufacturing supply chains. Due to the widespread adoption Read More

Autodesk to Bring Microsoft Business Solutions Closer to PLM


While the recent joining of complementary forces by Microsoft Business Solutions and Autodesk will make many heads turn, a lot more detail and clarifications are needed for the alliance to establish itself as an ERP-PLM superpower in the mid-market.

Consequently, the companies' mutual customers should be able to more easily track product data by linking the engineering bill of materials (EBOMs) and engineering change orders (ECOs) that will be created Read More

Gaining Competitive Advantage through Global Product Development


Product development is a mission-critical process. And it can also be very expensive. But thanks to modern computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided engineering (CAE), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and product lifecycle management (PLM) systems, many manufacturing companies now have the tools that allow better alignment of cost and value-add. This is what’s referred to as “global product development.” Learn more.
