process automation meets engineering. Dassault
Systemes' Isight simulation process automation and design
has been upgraded with new methods and capabilities to exploit
processing along with a new licensing model designed to reduce cost.
SIMULIA brand, gives designers, engineers and researchers an open system
integrate design and simulation models created with diverse CAD, CAE and
design tool applications. The software is designed to help automate the
execution of hundreds or thousands of simulations, saving time and
improve designs by optimizing against performance or cost variables
methods such as Design of Experiments or Design for Six Sigma.
The new Isight 4.5
upgrade provides new scalable parallel algorithms for leveraging
computing resources, enhanced approximation and reliability methods to
product performance across a range of real-world operating variables,
improvements to multi-objective optimization and data mining which
deeper insight into performance attribute tradeoffs. Dassault also
SIMULIA Execution Engine (formerly Fiper) 4.5 for executing Isight
process flows across computing resources.
Customers will now
be able to leverage the new parallel algorithm and optimization features
Isight combined with the distributed computing capabilities of
Engine to evaluate more design alternatives in less time, according to
Crowley, director of product management, SIMULIA, Dassault Systemes.
result in developing better products at a lower cost, he said.
In a related move, users of SIMULIA's Abaqus
Unified FEA will benefit from a new licensing policy that dramatically
the cost for using SIMULIA's Abaqus Unified FEA in automated design
with Isight. Using the combination of these products allows customers to
their Abaqus token usage as much as 60 percent.
Dow Chemical and several other companies have launched a program in Omaha, Neb. to divert about 36 tons of plastics from landfills in its first phase, and convert it into energy used for cement production.
Both traditional automation companies and startups are developing technologies to improve processes on the factory floor, while smart sensors and other IoT-related technologies are improving how products are handled during transport and across the supply chain.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
