Invention Machine continues its quest to draw its innovation platform into the more well-known sphere of PLM, announcing a new partnership with Siemens PLM Software to create tighter integration between the two platforms.
Invention Machine, which announced a similar deal with PLM vendor PTC in February, is pursuing these partnerships with PLM vendors to help engineers better leverage design data to bring more innovative products to market faster, officials claim. Siemens PLM Software and Invention Machine will offer the Goldfire Innovator Connector to Teamcenter software, which delivers direct access to data stored within the PLM platform, allowing design engineers to integrate engineering documents and reports while leveraging Goldfire Innovator’s problem analysis workbench and semantic knowledgebase to build structure around the innovation process.
Goldfire Innovator 4.5 offers industry-specific Risk Analysis templates, improved multi-lingual support and enhancements in the areas of search performance.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
