UGS and its open PLM strategy got a big nod this week when auto giant General Motors Corp. named the company among its top suppliers for 2006.
UGS, the only IT supplier to be honored among the 64 winners, was recognized, according to GM officials, for the impact its Teamcenter Product Lifecycle Management software, NX CAD software, and Tecnomatix digital manufacturing software have had on helping GM transform its innovation processes. Specifically, UGS was lauded for helping GM reduce its up-front vehicle development time.
UGS and GM have long been partners around PLM software. GM had been working for years on deploying Teamcenter across its enterprise to facilitate collaboration and the sharing of design data, and in 2005, the pair extended their relationship to include UGS’ Tecnomatix digital manufacturing software for handling factory layout, simulation and planning.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
