3D CAD Tools Meet Target Times and Costs Efficiently using CAD tools has a dramatic impact on a company's success. A pair of recent studies by Boston-based Aberdeen Group show how best-in-class manufacturers met their target times and costs nearly 90 percent of the time. Full Story
The Hot Trends in 3D CADRay Kurland, president of TechniCom, Inc., tells clients a cautionary tale of a company that used only a few dozen unique parts but pre-built hundreds of assemblies. But inventory was high, manufacturing costs were excessive and engineering costs were out of control. Full Story Stretching R&D FundsStudies show high-tech companies can improve their financial performance by streamlining the front end — mainly product development and R&D.

In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
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.
