As Seen In Automotive Design & Production

One of the companies that Fred Thomas and his DELMIA Apriso team are working with is Faraday Future. This is a company that has no legacy systems as it is a new company. According to the company, “Faraday Future seeks to redefine the automotive experience by delivering a range of smart, electric vehicles and usage arrangements.” Because they’re a clean-sheet operation, they have the opportunity to execute their manufacturing operations without having a concern for legacy. But while they may be an Industry 4.0 company right out of the box (they’re building a plant in North Las Vegas, Nevada), there are plenty more that need to undergo a transformation from how things have been done for years to  how they need to be done  going forward.

Transformation to 4.0
Let’s face it: there is a whole lot of existing infrastructure in factories around the world. Going from day-to-day, getting it done to Industry 4.0 will take technology, vision and leadership.

PLM and the Importance of Experience
People’s experiences—the product property that can lead to greater profitability—should be part of product lifecycle management, says Dassault Systèmes.

Dassault's Broadened PLM Offerings
Not only has Dassault been writing code for getting expanded PLM functionality for users, it has also been acquiring some companies. Here’s a look.

PLM Behind The Scenes
Must product life-cycle management (PLM) systems be up front and center? No. But by being there it can add assistance for collaboration and design.

CAD For The Small, Medium, and Large
Price, breadth of features, and product lifecycle management are what mostly separate CAD systems in corporate eyes.

The ABCs of PLM
Just what are the elements of a PLM system? Or could be? This article helps spell those out.

The Process Is the Key to the Future
Most companies use CAD models to develop products. A number of companies are using simulation software to figure out how to best arrange their manufacturing resources, such as people and equipment. Rakesh Mahajan thinks that a real competitive advantage will be found by companies that do the best job of defining and refining their processes.

What Makes Automotive CAD/CAM Systems So Special?
The high-end automotive CAD/CAM systems do a whole lot more than their name implies. In addition to design and manufacturing, they have the ability to support analysis, product data management, and more.

CAD Vendors Create New Solutions
Shifting alliances, the continued encapsulation of engineering expertise, and the drive to reduce the complexity of today's computer-aided design (CAD) systems are just some of the latest milestones on the path toward solids modeling becoming the de facto design engineering tool.
