Credit Card Fraud Detection: Advanced Analytics in Action or Pure Luck?
Have you ever wondered how credit card companies are capable of detecting purchases that a particular card holder did not make? Do these companies make use of

cad guy  an amount of $8.00 (CAD) from a McDonald’s restaurant. I can understand how a transaction of $1,000.00 (CAD) would trigger an inquiry, but how on earth could a transaction made at a McDonald’s restaurant for an $8.00 (CAD) meal raise eyebrows? Here are my hypotheses on this: 1 .    Credit card companies compile a consumer profile for each and every card holder based on purchases he/she makes using his/her credit card over the years. In my case, if my credit card company compared this transaction Read More

Though Geomagic by itself does not offer traditional CAD packages, it does offer software for scanning physical objects. Geomagic’s rich product portfolio includes its acquisition of Sensable, a company that developed haptic feedback tools (tools that give users the feel of sculpting forms). Laser scanning has gained popularity in many different Read More
Dalian Shipyard Transforms Shipbuilding in China with PTC Product Development Tools
After adopting two-dimensional computer-aided design (2D CAD) in the 1990s, Dalian Shipyard discovered that 2D technology didn’t meet the real-world challenges

Where Does PLM Fit in the Extending LMS Formula?
There are two reasons which led me to write this blog. Firstly, I recently had briefings with vendors such as Learn.com and Xyleme that made me realize that the

cad guy  used. The existing 3D CAD assets have the potential to be used for learning purposes, but sophisticated CAD systems are usually expensive thus not available for a wide range of audiences. Actually, for most learning purposes, a learner only needs a very small fraction of what today’s 3D CAD systems offer. Based on 3D models, 3D learning content needs to be generated and communicated conveniently and inexpensively, and I see 3DVIA as a good candidate for this task. Certainly, this is not the only thing Read More

cad guy  in Payment Models for CAD Deployments Given the  recent desktop virtualization move for PTC Creo , it will be interesting to watch whether PTC will start offering subscriptions for some Creo apps (and Dassault Systèmes for SolidWorks ). This is especially interesting in light of the recent move of  Siemens Solid Edge to subscription licensing , and also since Autodesk is now offering its desktop and other design products on a pay-as-you-go basis . In terms of comparing 3D computer-aided design (CAD) Read More

But as in the case of rigid and monolithic old ERP replacements (e.g., see  Workday ’s recent ongoing success ), the fact is that some companies are switching PLM systems when they have a failure condition. I believe that the economic/political reality moving forward into the future will make the multi-million dollar big Read More
The Different Evolutionary Stages of ERP and PLM

While CAD involves the use of high-resolution graphics in a wide range of product design activities, allowing quick evaluation and modification of the designer's intent, PDM systems are merely vaults for storing and updating data, which replace paper-based processes and information storage with a single, centralized data repository that enables authorized users throughout a company to access and update current product information, while ensuring they follow specific procedures.
