Discussion will take a look at what optimization is and why some engineers are anxious about it. ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 26 January 2017—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces that Dr. Keith Meintjes, CIMdata’s Practice Manager for Simulation and Analysis, will join a roundtable discussion that will consider the outlook for Optimal Design Technology. Dr. Meintjes will be joined by Advanced Engineering Solutions’ Dr. Andreas Vlahinos. Historically, engineers have been able to rely on industry knowledge, expertise, and aesthetics to decide how a product looks. Now, they have an alternative path available—one that involves generative design, a process where product shape is determined using physics-based simulation methods that consider performance requirements and objectives such as minimum cost and weight; topology optimization, a technique for generative design; and and other technologies that look for input from AI-like algorithms. The roundtable discussion will be moderated Kenneth Wong of Digital

Presentation will include a discussion on the challenges and opportunities associated with the “single digital thread” vision. ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 25 January 2017—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, is pleased to announce that Don Tolle, CIMdata’s Director for Simulation-Driven Systems Development Consulting Practice & Knowledge Council, will make a presentation at the INCOSE International Workshop which takes place in Torrance, California from January 28-31. Mr. Tolle will make his presentation titled, The intersection of PLM, MBSE, SMS: What’s next, on Sunday, January 29 as part of the MBSE Workshop: SE Transformation & MBSE Initiative. The large number of acronyms being used to define the digitalization of product development processes throughout the lifecycle is confusing. As industry moves towards the adoption of model-centric and systems-driven development processes they may be regarded as becoming counterproductive. Mr. Tolle’s presentation will highlight the differences and overlap of these different viewpoints

Educational webinar will provide an overview of semantic web technology that is relevant to product failure knowledge capture and reuse. ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 5 January 2017—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, “Why Connected Intelligent Products Need Semantic Web Technology.” The webinar will take place on February 9, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. (EST) and will last for one hour. The development of trustworthy connected intelligent products needs a knowledge system based design-for-reliability capability. Such a capability demands a seamless integration between the processes and tools of systems engineering and reliability engineering, as well as a knowledge system that can be used to transform implicit product failure knowledge into explicit machine-readable knowledge. The knowledge system must enable the capture and reuse of product failure understanding not only from previous generation products, but also from the verification and validation cycles of those currently
