Integration of Data

I can relate to the discussion about the major obstacles of integrating data with multiple vendor's tools across multiple domains.  With design cycle times becoming more and more compressed, it is so important to have the right data immediately available at a designer's fingertips.  As the article stated, too often it seems that we have to spend excessive time digging up, verifying and converting design data instead of spending more time on the actual design itself.  The right PLM tools and system can be very beneficial.

Agreed.  PLM systems have helped streamline the design process.  Being able to share files across multiple platforms is very useful.

@Nadine: Yes indeed plus it saves time as well. Time is precious but mostly gets ignored but in real terms, it gets calculated.

Very interesting article, mechatronics design could greatly benefit from implementing some form of PLM.

I agree. It seems as though PLM can help manage all development cyles for mechanicals, electronics, and software as well as assist in the seamless integration of these three product based components.

Latest Analysis
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
A decade from now, firmware development may be nothing more than software integration, grabbing vendor and third-party components, and meshing their APIs together to form a final system.
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.

Researchers in Australia think new types of plastic materials instead of silicon may be the key to building more efficient solar cells.
