It does mean more work for the engineer, but in the long run it will actually mean less.  Isn't that just a wonderful statement? :)

 

Actually, when we submit a new design, we have to attach quite a bit of data already for the designs to be reviewed.  Having that data quickly searchable would definitely increase our time at reviewing and designing new product.

Actually, SoCalPE, I think the idea is to get those requests off the engineer's plate and create a standardized service or product to strip it out and automatically input into whatever the target enterprise system is. But yes, the idea of having to standardize the way data is input into the CAD model is likely something engineers and designers will have to pay close attention to. And that could be more work.

I like it.  I can see the real benefit of this capability within an organization.  Many times has an interdepartment request for information from a CAD file found its way to me.  Of course, this will rely on accurate data input and coordination and standards for what data needs to be attached to any given CAD file.  More work for us engineers!

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
Fifteen European research centers have launched EuroCPS to help European companies develop innovative products for the Internet of Things.
Get your Allman Brothers albums ready. The iconic Volkswagen Microbus may be poised for a comeback, and this time it could be electric.
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
