Suites containing Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Inventor software allow customers, such as building product manufacturers, to simplify and export an Inventor model into a Revit file Read More

A Glance at AVEVA’s Future of Plant Design


AVEVA, a computer aided design (CAD) pioneer, opened its doors under the name CADCentre in 1967 as a breakaway of a research initiative of Cambridge University. Its history is closely related to the Silicon Fen phenomenon, which is the UK equivalent of the high-tech and information technology (IT) hub Silicon Valley. Important milestones in the history of the company include the release of the

I will be following the evolution of the project and will provide more details when the solution is officially launched. Read More

Siemens PLM Analyst Conference 2014—Blending Virtual and Real Worlds—Part Two


Last week on the TEC blog, TEC's P.J. Jakovljevic looked at the main themes of the Siemens PLM Conference 2014 he recently attended, including Siemens’ “realize innovation” strategy. Here are his thoughts regarding the rest of the conference, with a look at what’s new with “catalysts” and Teamcenter, and what else can be expected from the product lifecycle management (PLM) vendor in 2014 and beyond.
