Hi guys am owner of Flarian and PromotionalDrives.I am looking secure cloud system that can save my design data.I think Arena is best for that purpose.Any body have experience with Arena just I need feedback of this firm
Thanks Charles and far911. I've also seen how a well-documented audit traceability system can be used by younger engineers to quickly develop the skills needed to become contributing team members. A well written system can help 'mentor' others by laying out a structured framework and a proven process to abide by.
I appreciate the audit traceability and knowledge capture on this system. In many of today's fast-paced environments, good knowledge capture is very important because new team members must quickly learn how to support or modify the design when the previous team members are not present. This type of system will help companies be more efficient when faced with dynamic and changing resource allocations.
I don't know if GM used product quality software in its system, but it seems like this kind of system might have helped GM make the link between the faulty ignitions switches and its airbag issues. It took GM about ten years to connect the two.
Rob, this is a good example of a topic that has appeared in Design News over the last couple of years. PLM systems that can integrate all phases of a product lifecycle, including a flexible ability to get information into the system will help increase effieciency and quality.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
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.
