ERP for Services (Non-manufacturing)

Typically, ERP systems designed for services industries offer modules that provide back-office support, customer relationship management, time management, expense management, resource management, and project management capabilities. Depending on the vertical market, additional industry-specific functionality may be included to address unique business requirements. Consequently, project-centric systems for accounting, architecture, construction, engineering, and professional services industries will support project management functionality; whereas health care, field service, distribution, and government systems will support functionality unique to those vertical markets.

Engineering Change Management 2.0: Better Business Decisions from Intelligent Change Management


Traditionally, change management in product development and engineering has been viewed as a way to control cost and improve efficiencies. But companies are becoming aware that better change can drive top-line benefits—and are developing processes with an eye towards improving speed-to-market. Find out why good change management is becoming more important—and how you can use it as a tool to increase product profitability.

To this end, Best-in-Class companies are considerably more likely (2.3 times) than Industry Average Read More

What Could Be Some New Frontiers for Large CAD/PLM Providers?


My attendance of Siemens’ two-day product lifecycle management (PLM) analyst summit in the late summer of 2011 was like trying to drink from a fire hose.

For example, some companies have robotics engineers that are tied to controls engineers 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

Engineering and Environmental Simulation Software for the Mining Industry


Mine evaluation studies, including those that support mine water management or environmental compliance, are rife with challenges. The biggest: to quantitatively evaluate alternative approaches for completing projects, and to identify and manage associated risks. Models must be accurate, and yet still take uncertainty into account. Learn how a simulation tool can you help forecast the behavior of complex mining systems.

The Practical Realities of Automating ETO Business Processes


Today, engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturers—also known as project-based manufacturers—experience significant market pressure across their sales, engineering and manufacturing groups as they strive to win business and streamline end-to-end processes. But by capturing engineering knowledge and using it to automate key business processes, manufacturers can increase sales bid and win rates, decrease internal operating expenses, and shorten lead times.
