APIs for the Modern Factory Floor

The modern factory floor relies on APIs because the technology allows manufacturers to effectively track and oversee every step of the value chain from start to finish. It also helps ensure machinery is working efficiently.

Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and Accelerating Your Quality System's Actionability

In absence of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), reporting is purely historical and is often available too late to take action on its findings. MES enables non-conformances to be addressed in the present and minimize their potential impact.

Offline Programming Software is Single Solution for Robotic Hammer Peening of Automotive Stamping Dies

Total programming time for one workpiece, including the time to import a CAD file and create a toolpath, was reduced from 12 hours to only 3.5 hours.

Webalo Launches No-Code App Generation Platform for IIoT

Chris J. Preimesberger for eWeek: Webalo 4.0 gives enterprise users the ability to quickly and automatically generate dynamic desktop and mobile persona-based apps using wizards and drop-down menus.

HPC Trends - Why the CFD Community Must Be 'Proactive' Not Reactive

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.

Industrial Software for Simulation and Emulation

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.

Automated Engineering

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.

Fanuc Leads The Way For Smart Factory Software For Now, Kuka And ABB To Follow Closely

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.

Seebo and Autodesk Forge Team Up to Help Product Developers Launch Connected Devices

This comprehensive software solution streamlines the entire smart product development process, dramatically decreasing development time and costs.

For Visio, PDF is the new DWG

During discussions with the Visio product team I realized that PDF is the new intermediate file format for Visio, not DWG. For example, PDF's from AutoCAD are plotted at a specific paper size and scale, perfect for Visio.

Emulate3D Simulation and Emulation within the Industry 4.0 Framework

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.
