I agree, Beth. From your article, it seemed there were a lot of features that might be important while used infrequently. Those type of tools may not need to be resident on the user's server.

Rob, this isn't available in the cloud, to my knowledge, but it does seem like a capability that might lend itself to a cloud implementation when and if engineering organizations get comfortable with that paradigm.

Nice article, Beth. Is this a tool that is available through the cloud? I would think with all the options and updates, it would be a good candidate for a cloud application.

Thanks for the perspective, Beth. I was thinking that process flow automation might be the next feature to start trickling down to lower-cost CAD/PLM suites, but I guess as you say it's more appropriate for larger projects. Interesting how the CAD space is one of the few software areas which hasn't become commoditized, at least at the high end.

This product is specifically for automating process workflows for high-end simulation and definitely tuned for Dassault own high-end SIMULIA CAE line. I don't think that small firms are any where near ready to take on this kind of process automation around simulation because they likely don't do the level of optimization and analysis that large firms like large automotive OEMs or aerospace manufacturers do on a regular basis as part of their design process. More likely, in small and mid-sized shops, engineers either do their own simulation with their own CAD tools or there are a few specialists in house that focus specifically on CAE. Even in that scenario, process automation around simulation is perhaps biting off more than they can chew or even have an appetite for.

Interesting and valuable approach. My perception is that Dassault is only used in large shops, so my question is, is this true? And if so, is streamlining of process workflows limited to high-end CAD/PLM products or is it being implemented across the board?
