Do any of the following statements sound a little too familiar?
  • Additive manufacturing is disconnected from materials engineering
  • Materials engineering isn’t routinely practiced
  • Your additive manufacturing process relies on old design and simulation processes and tools
  • New materials are key to your innovation focus, but your PLM tools and processes don’t support their definition
  • Your current PLM solution doesn’t support the need to engineer new materials

Many would argue that we are in the Information Age, which has brought us the tools, techniques, and processes in PLM that support the way we define, design, engineer, produce, and support vehicles. Over the years, engineers have learned how to encode mathematics and physics in analytical programs that can accurately predict how things will work in the real world. Materials handbooks summarize this information, so that engineers and designers can pick materials with a high degree of confidence, and design components using them that will function as predicted. Using materials like plastics, ceramics, and composites in new applications and compositions required the development of new methods, analytics, testing, and other skills to ensure that these materials function as required. This webinar will introduce participants to how materials engineering affects PLM and its use within automotive and other similar industries.

What will I learn by attending this webinar?

  • You will learn how new materials and materials engineering are impacting the product lifecycle
  • You will gain insight into PLM’s future support of materials engineering
  • You will be able to understand how PLM and materials engineering support additive manufacturing

Join us for this webinar if you want to:

  • Understand the definition and importance of materials engineering
  • Understand materials engineering and its connection to ideation and innovation
  • Understand the connection between materials engineering, PLM, and additive manufacturing
  • Understand how PLM solutions need to evolve to support materials engineering and additive manufacturing

Who should attend?

  • PLM strategy and implementation managers
  • Materials engineers
  • Engineering managers
  • Manufacturing engineers
  • PLM software and service providers
  • PLM leaders and users
  • Anyone who wants to learn more about materials and PLM

During the webinar you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed.
