Tentative Unification in Server I/O Architecture Battle
The Next Generation I/O (NGIO) and Future I/O groups have agreed to unify their efforts to develop the next I/O architecture.

Market Impact With the development of very fast and powerful CPUs, I/O has become the biggest bottleneck in system performance.

Assuming the unification is completed

Whirlpool Selects aPriori for Product Cost Management


Whirlpool Corporation, a world renowned manufacturer of major home appliances, recently announced it would use aPriori to automate its product cost estimating processes, drive global consistency in costing practices, and provide a central cost management database for use by cross functional product development teams. Using aPriori’s real-time product cost assessments, employees in design, engineering, sourcing, cost engineering, and manufacturing can make better informed decisions that drive costs out of product pre- and post-production.

As is the case in many other enterprise software areas, many companies are simply outgrowing what they have developed internally.   One of aPriori’s unique differentiators is that the software can leverage both 3D solid computer-aided design (CAD) models and engineering knowledge and experience to automatically generate detailed manufacturing analysis and cost estimates that quantify the impact of changes to Read More

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

siemens and plano  JT File Format Reference. Siemens will continue to work with the JT Open organization and keep JT useful for industry. All changes made to the reference will be submitted to ISO for acceptance and publication in the ISO specification. ISO standards are forward compatible, so moving to the new versions of JT should not be disruptive to any business.

Tacton Systems AB


Tacton Systems is a world leader in advanced sales and product configuration. Tacton develops and sells embeddable software for sales and design configuration. Tacton’s solutions redefines how product configuration is managed, making it radically simpler to design, configure and sell complex products online as well as offline. Tacton’s solutions integrate easily with surrounding systems and have standard integrations for many leading e-commerce, ERP, CRM, PDM, PLM, and CAD systems.    Tacton’s Story starts in 1987 when a group of engineers and programmers at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science were doing ground-breaking research in the field of knowledge-based systems, and the application of artificial intelligence to solve industry challenges. The researchers were convinced that there were great gains to be made by applying the principles to the field of product configuration. The research team worked in close collaboration with companies such as Ericsson, ABB, and Alfa Laval. By 1993, the group had developed a configurator for a pilot project that was causing quite a stir. Both the researchers and the Institute saw the commercial potential of what had been developed. After a further five years of prototyping and evaluation, Tacton Systems was formed as a spin-off from the research institute.   Tacton has an impressive customer roster with impressive results gained with the offered technology. Many of the customers are leading industrial manufacturers such as   Siemens, ABB, Scania, Aker and Alfa Laval. Tacton works closely with their customers, large and small, to help them revolutionize their processes, to grow, and to become more competitive.   Today Tacton is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, with customers and resellers across the globe.

Dissecting Dassault Systèmes’ V6 R2013x 3DEXPERIENCE Platform


In late November 2012, Dassault Systèmes, a world leader in 3D design software, 3D digital mock up (DMU), and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, announced the latest release of its 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Siemens Teamcenter Going to the PLM Cloud


What Siemens alluded to us at its two-day Siemens PLM analyst summit in early September 2012 is now official—the vendor has announced that its flagship product lifecycle management (PLM) software Teamcenter is available on the cloud, adding another platform option for Teamcenter customers.

The dynamic scalability of Teamcenter on the cloud should provide faster time to value and a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for customers. Teamcenter on the cloud provides Read More

Autodesk Ushers In the Era of Cloud CAM


As manufacturing is one of the major growth opportunities for Autodesk, during the recent Autodesk University 2013 conference the vendor unveiled Autodesk CAM 360 , the industry’s first cloud-based solution for computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), based on the 2012 acquisition of HSMWorks Apps.

PTC Embarks on Internet of Things Journey via ThingWorx Acquisition


PTC ended 2013 by announcing it had acquired ThingWorx, creators of a platform for building and running applications for the Internet of Things (IoT), for approximately $112 million (USD), plus a possible earn-out of up to $18 million (USD). The acquisition of ThingWorx positions PTC as a major player in the emerging IoT era.

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

Other than Siemens and Dassault Systèmes (the latter might be a tad newer to the game), I don’t think any other PLM providers go to this level of manufacturing complexity and that any other PLM providers would be Kineo partners.

With the acquisition of Kineo, Siemens PLM Software strengthens its openness by extending its delivery of component technology to better support computer aided Read More
