One of the primary drivers of the increased use of automation is the lower cost of robotic solutions. While some manufacturers might still be spooked by cost, automation doesn't have to break the bank.
According to 65% of those polled, improvements in design tools, tech innovation and new design methodologies have simplified efforts over the past three-to-five years. Still, a multitude of factors continue to hinder design engineering progress and innovation.
Today, engineers have a lot more control over the direction of their products, and PLM is where they reflect these decisions. PLM is the only data repository where someone can get a holistic view of the entire product and its history of changes.
The augmented demand for the technology from several industrial verticals due to the increasing use of simulation in the design of industrial tools by OEMs has facilitated the penetration of 3D animation solutions worldwide
The company's unique objectives required PSbyM to modify its own processes for the six-month engagement. First, a far more detailed assessment of operations was completed by practitioners, including focus groups and deep dives into equipment-design elements.
Manufacturers of highly configurable products want to maximize engineering resources. By capturing knowledge and decision-making, the newest best-in-class engineering automation software speeds development of subsequent design iterations.
Mobility engineers will learn how to address the energy and environmental challenges of vehicles through the application of next generation electrification, emissions reduction, and lightweighting technologies.
Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: The desktop 3D printing space has become an interesting one in the last year or so, as manufacturers shift the focus away from consumers and towards professional and industrial users. The technology has proven that it may not quite be ready to produce consumer goods for every household—or perhaps households aren't quite ready for 3D printing at home. Those in the industry know, however, that low-cost 3D printing is still a powerful technology, if not for fabricating home goods, then as an early design tool and, in some cases, even for short-run manufacturing. Cont'd...
