There’s yet another chapter in the partnership story between Dassault Systèmes and aerospace giant EADS. The two, which have been collaborating around PLM for years, are extending their alliance to include many of the Dassault Systèmes’ simulation software offerings as part of EADS vision for PLM 2.0.
The EADS Phenix PLM Harmonization Center (PHC), a global PLM standardization effort to foster innovation and promote reuse between EADS divisions, will now include Dassault Systèmes’s Isight Fiper and Abaqus applications as part of the V6 open collaborative PLM platform. These tools will serve as the simulation engine in key programs within EADS divisions, such as Airbus and Astrium, in order to accelerate complex architecture development and new concept validation.
“It is our decision to continue to improve the cooperation with Dassault Systèmes in order to increase our PLM capabilities,” said Jean-Yves Mondon, head of PHENIX and PHC at EADS, in a prepared statement. “We believe that our related strategy, leveraging those new potentialities, will provide EADS with a real competitive advantage.”

Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
