For the one-day Design & Simulation Summit in October 2021, Digital Engineering put together a stellar lineup of knowledgeable speakers and informative presentations, to help you identify the right tools for your job and avoid the common pitfalls. Here are some highlights from the tracks.
Digital Engineering Magazine has compiled the workstation reviews from the past year, along with some feature content relevant to evaluating new design and simulation workstations.
The need for high-level customization with superior machine complexity drives manufacturers to support a global machine design to implement manufacturing strategies.
Enhancements and new features focus on increased flexibility for various simulation-driven design workflows.
Simulation, modeling, visualization and sensor-based data converge to close the design-to-manufacture loop.
With many organizations redefining the future of work and collaboration, cloud-enabled teams and tools are increasingly the lifeblood of business continuity.
New simulation and optimization tools (leveraging GPU acceleration) are improving 3D printing performance and predictability.
To better understand how and why the nonexperts are embracing the technology, Digital Engineering's Kenneth Wong spoke to various simulation software users on the frontier of the movement for democracy.
Digital Engineering's Beth Stackpole writes that a focus on post-processing capabilities and creative use of emerging technologies takes the democratization of simulation to the next level boosting accessibility of analysis-driven insight.
The evolution of digital thread is still very much in flux. A number of essential components have yet to be clearly defined, and industry leaders and technology providers still have to agree on the best way to implement the concept to enable broad adoption. As a result, engineers are often left with as many questions as answers.
The digital twin continues to proliferate and is a concept often associated with Siemens, and given our investment in software, additive manufacturing and the digital industries, this is good news indeed. But sometimes these terms can be too ethereal and my interest is piqued when I see this concept in action.
Boosted by new, easier to use tools and more readily available computer resources, simulation technology is increasingly used more frequently and earlier in the design process, and by a wider array of professionals.
