HD-PLM, Exalead, and Project Lightning, What Do They Have in Common?


There wasn’t a lack of big news in the product lifecycle management (PLM) industry in the past few weeks. On May 20th, Siemens PLM Software unveiled High Definition Product Lifecycle Management (HD-PLM) at the World Exposition Shanghai China 2010 (Expo 2010). On June 7th, PTC told PTC/USER 2010 attendees that a virtual launch event for Project Lightning was schedule on October 28th, 2010. Two days

While looking at PTC’s offerings on 2D modeling, direct 3D modeling, parametric 3D modeling, and product data management, it makes sense for PTC to leverage and integrate these existing capabilities. Users will have less concerns on which tool to use and can develop a product in a more natural and intuitive way. So, Siemens PLM wants to provide valuable real-time information; Dassault Systèmes is growing the synergy between search and PLM; and PTC Read More

Autodesk Jumps on the Browser-based 3D Design Bandwagon


Autodesk is executing well along its main messages: cloud offerings are doing well, there is ongoing expansion in manufacturing, and the complete suite offering is working. The vendor recently announced that its customers will now be able to access Autodesk design tools via a Web browser, allowing access to full-fledged 3D design, engineering, and entertainment work without sacrificing performance, power, or functionality.

Product Lifecycle Management: Expediting Product Innovation


The highly competitive product manufacturing market makes true product lifecycle management (PLM) inevitable. PLM helps companies map product requirements to features, obtain control over product data, preserve product knowledge assets, and enter into the new paradigm of modular product development.

cad converter  is storing the generated CAD data in a centralized, secure, and easily accessible place. It's also important for design engineers to be able to check in or check out these files on a daily basis during the design cycle. This gives designers more control over the product design, since the centralized storage of product data makes for an information-rich product development process. Furthermore, incorporating a strict approval mechanism enables designers to do things right the first time. Precise CAD data Read More

Lectra Fashion PLM Becomes the First TEC Certified Solution in PLM for the Fashion Industry


“I can name more fashion PLM solutions than PLM solutions.” This was what I told my colleagues last year when I was working on the creation of a product lifecycle management (PLM) evaluation model geared specifically to the fashion industry. Of course, this was intended as a joke—a fashion PLM solution is still a PLM solution! But, here is the first fashion PLM solution to receive TEC

A natural evolution for the vendor was its expansion to product data management (PDM) about a decade ago, with the launch of its first PLM suite in 2006. Four years later, with the release of V2R2, Lectra Fashion PLM became quite a comprehensive and strong solution—in TEC’s certification of Lectra Fashion PLM, six of the eight functionality modules evaluated scored above the average solution, with five of these modules located in the Dominant Read More

PLM Road Map 2009: What to Expect?


I went through the agenda of the PLM Road Map 2009 (September 22 and 23, in Detroit, Michigan [US]) when I submitted my attendance preferences to conference organizer Collaborative Product Development Associates (CPDA). Looking at the agenda, I’m convinced that the two-day event is well structured to cover critical issues in the product lifecycle management (PLM) field and to apprehend the future

CAD Visibility and Interoperability Managing and controlling product data is an important aspect of PLM, but it is not enough to lock the information (especially computer-aided design [CAD] data) in a vault. A key value in PLM, however, is the ability to extend this data beyond the desktop to other engineers, other departments, and other stakeholders–primarily customers and suppliers. I’m expecting that Dr. Ken Versprille’s session CAD/Visualization Trends: Dealing with Read More

Best-of-Breed Versus Complete CAD-PLM Suites: The Debate Rages On


The PLM world is currently witness to fervent debate on the most appropriate type of PLM/CAD software. Best-of-breed solutions offer the needed capabilities and hence integrate the necessary software modules as per the customer’s needs, whereas all-in-one CAD/PLM suites attempt a “one size fits all” approach. In his report, TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic provides his view on the intricacies of these two approaches.

Siemens’ JT Data Format Gets a Nod from ISO


The year 2012 ended with a major win for (and perhaps a sigh of relief from) Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division. Namely, in December 2012, Siemens’ JT data format, a lightweight data format that makes it possible to view and share digital 3D product information in real time throughout all phases of a product’s lifecycle, was approved by the
