 PDF Key takeaways: The rapid pace of technology change associated with scientific computing and digital engineering has led to a profound change in the skills that engineers need to effectively perform their roles. CIMdata believes that U.S. universities are not adapting engineering curricula quickly enough to meet the needs of industry, particularly for mechanical engineering. Today's engineers need to learn how to effectively apply digital (virtual) modeling and simulation technologies within the context of their core engineering courses, in hands-on applied research projects and co-operative education programs. The reward and recognition system for faculty at many universities is not in synch with producing engineers who are “job ready” to apply today’s cutting-edge engineering technologies. While there are several university success stories, academic leadership must work more proactively and closely with industry to define and implement a next-generation 21st Century engineering curriculum. CIMdata consultants, as well as representatives of the product lifecycle management (PLM) software industry, have

 PDF Key takeaways: Dassault Systèmes continues to extend their 3DEXPERIENCE Platform with new coverage of MES and ERP. 3DEXPERIENCE.Works represents a continuation of Dassault Systèmes’ platform enablement journey, as well as its long-term commitment to the SOLIDWORKS community. SOLIDWORKS World 2019 grows on its success and is positioned for more growth as it becomes 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020. CIMdata attended SOLIDWORKS World 2019, which took place from 10 to 13 February in Dallas, Texas. The event continues to grow, with over 6,000 physical attendees and many others attending by remote connection. Dassault Systèmes clearly stated that it intends to expand the event further, both in technological scope and number of attendees. Hence, they announced that next year’s event will be called 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020. While some in the community will potentially question Dassault Systèmes’ expanding the focus beyond SOLIDWORKS, but those who have been attending for years will note that this is a natural step for
