Charles, this is Abhijit Dastidar from Siemens, responsible for Tecnomatix marketing. We offer robotic path planning in our Tecnomatix Process Simulate application. In fact, we use the same Kineo engine for path planning algorithm. Check out the Tecnomatix Process Simulate web page

Chuck: The capability in terms of software has definitely existed (the Kineo CAM) was/is a popular product, albeit in a niche, on its own and the company has partnerships with other PLM vendors. But the point is that the capabilities are separate or siloed from the rest of the engineering applications. Given Siemens' acquisition of the PLM software group several years back, it's not surprising and actually part of their stated intent, to deliver tools that integrate engineering/development work and processes much closer with manufacturing and the factory floor in terms of closing the loop between those functions. This is meant to ensure that designs can be manufactured and serviced effectively as part of the development process, eliminating subsequent costly rework and nasty, late-stage surprises.

Beth: What kind of software have engineers used up to now for path planning and optimization of robot movements? Has this capability existed within any of the current PLM offerings?
