 PDF Key takeaways: Up-front performance analysis and optimization, starting early in the product development cycle, requires both a systems view of the product and simulation and co-simulation models of varying degrees of fidelity. Leading thinkers are turning away from the creation of CAD geometry as “the design starting point” to an up-front engineering process that focuses on optimizing product functional capability versus requirements before committing to design decisions that lead to detailed 3D assembly and component design. Altair is rapidly rounding out its systems modeling and simulation portfolio, through internal application development, acquisitions, and partnerships, to enable this vision of model-based and simulation-driven design. Tightly integrated optimization capability is a key factor in this vision, as is enabling early exploration of system-level designs across multiple disciplines. With the relentless improvements in engineering software and computer capability, simulation can now be effectively applied well ahead of detailed component design. As Mr. Jim Scapa, CEO of Altair says,

 PDF Key takeaways: Dassault Systèmes’ continued investment in SOLIDWORKS, as well as its connection to their 3DEXPERIENCE platform, illustrates a long-term commitment to add value and ensure that SOLIDWORKS remains a design platform of choice for its customer base. Dassault Systèmes is driving to reduce the distance between the virtual and the physical to zero. SOLIDWORKS World 2017 demonstrated the strength and size of the SOLIDWORKS community and greater eco-system that continues to develop around it. The 19th annual SOLIDWORKS World conference was held February 5-8, 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, California, USA. A large and enthusiastic crowd of over 5,000 SOLIDWORKS users attended the conference, reportedly the largest crowd ever. This year’s theme was “The New, The Next, The Never Before.” The general sessions focused on how specific SOLIDWORKS engineers and innovators have used it “to break the bounds of the ‘possible’ and create the next great things that has
