In this article, we look at ways in which the world of HPC (High-performance computing) is approaching the latest disruptions and trends, and how the world of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) must match this proactive rather than reactive stance.
Companies who do not carry out emulation (or virtual commissioning) can only start controls testing when the real system is at least predominantly assembled, which means they are near ramp and handover, with a large amount of unpredictable testing yet to be started, and probably onsite and under close client scrutiny. Hardly the best of conditions for carrying out the methodical task of analytical verification, debugging and repair.
Automation is worthwhile particularly when there are large amounts of data, the tasks are repetitive or certain data is already available electronically in databases or other systems.
Kenkyo Investing via Seeking Alpha: For the purpose of getting the conversation flowing, I'll focus on what the big 4 players are doing in the race for smart factory software development.
Cloud based systems lead the way to more agile development - with simplified collaboration, decrease product development time by working together.
This comprehensive software solution streamlines the entire smart product development process, dramatically decreasing development time and costs.
During discussions with the Visio product team I realized that PDF is the new intermediate file format for Visio, not DWG. For example, PDFs from AutoCAD are plotted at a specific paper size and scale, perfect for Visio.
Wherever new ideas surface to bring Industry 4.0 to life, the simulation of these ideas to test, develop, and demonstrate them is the logical next step.

Design automation is highly beneficial to such industries that develop products which although look the same, have the provision of customization for specific customer requirements.
"Digital Factory" solutions - blazing the trail for new manufacturing technologies and production concepts.
Freed from the isolation of the real-time system and from other functions such as the user interface, OEMs are able to explore more innovative solutions with less risk and overhead.
In the relentlessly changing world of technology, several important advances and trends have emerged that allow OEMs to transition to a soft control architecture that will not only move them away from dependence on FPGAs and DSPs, but also change the basis of competition in the equipment and machine tool industries.
This paper seeks to determine which standard offers the best value and has the best chance of being viable in the long term.
These days almost all industrial automation engineers fall victim to three toolset options to build their applications

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
