What’s All This Benchmark Stuff, Anyway?


Vendors love to quote benchmarks in their product literature, press releases, and any place they think someone will use the numbers to make a buying decision. But what do the benchmarks mean, and which ones really matter?

What we now find is that, in addition to industry/consortium-originated benchmarks, tests are developed by non-vendor groups. A key example is the ZDNet eTesting Labs a.k.a Ziff-Davis Media Benchmarks (formerly known as Ziff-Davis Benchmark Operation [ZDBOp] and the suite of benchmarks they have built. ZD is Ziff-Davis, publisher of computer-related magazines such as PC Magazine , PC Week , and PC Computing . ZDBOp Read More

Dassault Systèmes-Expanding Product Development and the 3D Experience


The Dassault Systèmes vision is to enable everyone—from product designers, engineers, and suppliers to end users and their respective communities—to create, share, and experience the three-dimensional virtual world, thereby maximizing the value of their intellectual property and digital assets. In this article, TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic reports on the 3D design tools he recently saw demoed, how they enable collaboration, and their application to manufacturing and other sectors.

Subtle (or Not-so-subtle) Nuances of Microsoft .NET Enablement


The Microsoft .NET strategy continues to confuse many, due to the lack of understanding of the technology. Indeed, because of the massive marketing campaign undertaken by Microsoft, many vendors have adopted a "too liberal" approach to marketing .NET Framework-based initiatives.

ECAD/MCAD Collaboration Solutions: Integrating Mechanical and Electrical Product Design


Electro-mechanical design continues to gain importance, as the majority of today’s products have both electrical and mechanical components and systems. Designing and stimulating these products collaboratively across both domains is essential to producing high quality products. Learn how implementing an electro-computer-aided design (ECAD) and mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) strategy—now—can help you later.

Siemens’ Active Workspace Handles PLM Data Complexity


Today, many companies have massive amounts of information generated from their product lifecycle processes currently lying dormant, often spread across many sites, departments, and divisions, and located in several different unconnected databases. This information overload, resulting from the increasing speed, variety, and volume of data coming from multiple sources, could and should be used to

Siemens to Rule the Plant via Kineo, VRcontext, and LMS Acquisitions


Siemens’s Industry Automation division, which includes Siemens PLM Software, continues with its strategy of offering manufacturing organizations virtually anything they might need—from product ideation and design to actual manufacturing execution and plant automation (including even the actual hardware products from sister divisions at Siemens). Still, the giant knows that hardly any large

In other words, once a company heads down the robotics path, does it need to own both robotics hardware and software? If so, Siemens Industrial does hardware (whereas PTC and Dassault Systèmes don’t) and could be uniquely qualified in this regard. Miscellaneous BoB Solutions Also in early October 2012, Siemens acquired VRcontext, a Belgian company specializing in 3D visualization and training software for Read More

Dassault Systèmes Introduces Perfect Shelf, a CPG and Retail Solution Experience
