This educational webinar will consider the issues and the solutions that are being developed.   ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 16 July 2018—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, “Topology Optimization Changing the Face of CAD.” The webinar will take place on Thursday, August 9 2018, at 11:00 a.m. (EDT) and will last for one hour. Generative design is a process wherein the shape and composition of a product is determined by using physics-based simulation and other analysis methods that consider performance requirements and optimize objectives such as minimum cost and weight. Topology Optimization is the most familiar generative design process and its popularity is being driven by improvements in 3D printing. Such design approaches, however, challenge the traditional product development process in that many downstream tools do not understand the geometric output of topology optimization algorithms. This webinar will help attendees: To gain an

Empowering the Product Stakeholder Network with a user centric PLM system ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 3 July 2018—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces the publication of an eBook titled “Connecting the Value Chain to Accelerate New Product Introduction.” Many industrial and consumer engineered products comprise between 40% and 70% of procured-in content. Engineers must work with components, sub-modules, and whole products that come from outside their organization; that they did not design. These items must be evaluated for performance, price, availability, and form, fit, and function properties along with internally designed engineering content, yet PLM systems don’t manage the situation of mixed procured-in and internally authored content very well. An industrial engineering manager recently said: “90% of engineering design is shopping.” A reference to the amount of time engineers spend away from productive engineering design work, concentrating on non-productive activities related to procured-in content.
