Innovation in ManufacturingMicrosoft | Web Event Ed Miller of CIMdata explains how other organizations are reaching better maturity levels through best practices in collaborative product development, along with the methodology behind CPD technologies that have skyrocketed collaborative teams into greater productivity and financial achievement. Attendees can access a one-year FREE trial of Microsoft Office Groove 2007!
Siemens PLM Webcast on Mechatronics Process ManagementSiemens PLM Software | Web Event Building intelligence into a product requires software that is integrated with certain functions of the product. The addition of wire harness, electronics and software to an already complex product development process adds new challenges for the product development schedule, cost and quality. All of these different types of data, as well as their change processes, must be managed and shared.
As 3D models and images take root in engineering departments and beyond, all variants of design tools are building bridges to integrate with traditional CAD packages. There’s integration with electrical engineering tools, with mathematical programs and even with specialty applications that manage compliance data. What bridges does your engineering department require in the CAD world? Drop me a line.

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.
