SolidWorks and IQMS Partner Tightly
IQMS is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) and manufacturing execution systems (MES) vendor that tries to deliver as much native functionality as possible

solidworks draftsight  IQMS has just released its SolidWorks PDM add-in . With more than two million license on the market,  SolidWorks is an established 3D CAD application owned by Dassault Systèmes . Manufacturers use SolidWorks rendering tools to create, simulate, publish, and manage product data, parts, and tools. From within the SolidWorks menu (without the need for a separate CAD-ERP linking program), users can link parts, tools, and other assembly file details and configurations to create engineering change orders

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.

Shifts 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

What’s New in the World of Design Components and Kernels?


Those folks that follow the 3D and 2D computer aided design (CAD) space are aware that all major design, manufacturing, and engineering software products are based on geometry modeling kernels and a variety of other development components. Spatial Corp., a Dassault Systèmes subsidiary, is one prominent provider of 3D development software components for technical applications across a broad range

solidworks draftsight  SIMULIA as well as SolidWorks V6 . I don’t know who originally created CGM but it is now under Spatial Corp. (which was acquired by Dassault Systèmes in 2000). Most recently, Spatial Corp. joined Geometric Limited in announcing Geometric DFX , a standalone application for carrying out the DFX validation of product designs. Geometric describes DFX as “Design for X” where X represents various downstream process checks related to design goals such as manufacturability, assembly, quality, Read More

Bentley Extends Commitment to Siemens PLM Software


The 3D computed-aided design (CAD) world continues to be co-opetitive. Many of the situations where fierce competitors end up using each other’s tools in their competing products are circumstantial, i.e., those products were using tools supplied by a software company before it was acquired by a competitor. For example, the Parasolid 3D geometric modeling kernel was developed

solidworks draftsight  and was used by SolidWorks well before Dassault Systèmes acquired Solidworks and before Siemens acquired Parasolid via UGS. In any case, in support of its MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3) software products, Bentley Systems, Incorporated, will now add Parasolid Bodyshop, and D-Cubed Profile Geometry Manager (PGM), and expand the deployment of the JT Data Format. Bentley expressed its interest in the ability of Bodyshop to “heal” (i.e., repair, optimize, and validate) imperfect 3D geometry imported Read More

PTC Live Global 2013: All About Design for “Servitization” —Part Two


Last week on the TEC blog I talked about market shifts and technological changes that are reshaping the competitive landscape for manufacturing firms, based on PTC CEO Jim Heppelmann’s seven trends, which formed the backbone of his keynote presentation at the PTC Live Global 2013 event held in California in June. PTC Live Global also had a companion Service Exchange (formerly Servigistics Exchange

One can then decide to either make changes around these native files (via wrappers) in Creo or change them directly, but then you must save them as Creo objects. If PTC can pull this off, it would be a major breakthrough, since now companies could use Creo instead of having four different CAD systems and designers (i.e., to handle the Creo, SolidWorks, NX, and older CATIA files). Other CAD formats, say, Autodesk Inventor and CATIA Read More

Needless to say, prior to being acquired by Oracle , Agile PLM has been an incumbent mid-market product. To be fair, at PlanetPTC Live 2010 there was a hint of a major (even revolutionary) new product design “uber” suite in the making, code-named Project Lightning , but in general, the annual event was fairly subdued.

Meeting Configure One at PlanetPTC Live 2011


My recent attendance of the PlanetPTC Live 2011 event was a great learning experience. Look for an article with my impressions on the conference and on PTC’s strategy with regards to the novel PTC Creo suite of design applications leveraging both the direct and parametric modeling (and in the wake of the release of nine Creo 1.0 applications), embedded software lifecycle management (with the MKS

Social PLM and CRM - Dassault Systèmes and Netvibes (Under the Exalead Brand)


The voice of the customer (VOC) concept has been around for decades, but the Internet and social media technologies have finally enabled it to its fullest degree. We have all heard of (and perhaps even contributed to) customers venting their anger or expressing their delight with some vendor’s service or some product’s characteristics and performance via online forums. A company’s ability to

The situation is similar at all other PLM providers that stem from the CAD world (i.e., PTC, Siemens , and Autodesk ): about two third of their revenues come from non-CAD tools, i.e.  non-PLM apps. Additionally, about one fifth of PLM user licenses can be attributed to CAD requirements and users. After following the shopping sprees of many vendors’  in the past (e.g., Infor, SSA Global, CA , etc.), it is easy for any market analyst to become a little jaded. I Read More

Inforbix - About Smart Product Information Discovery and Consumption


Anyone who has been covering the product lifecycle management (PLM) market will have likely met Oleg Shilovitsky at some industry events or at least read one of his impartial and knowledgeable blog posts on the available PLM vendors, solutions, and market trends. Shilovitsky has been building software products for product data management (PDM), engineering, and manufacturing for the last 20 years

solidworks draftsight  such as Autodesk Vault, SolidWorks Enterprise PDM , and ENOVIA SmarTeam . Other PDM and PLM systems will be available later this year. Our sales model is indirect (via web downloading). However, we have currently recruited a reseller ( Novedge ) and will continue to look into recruiting more value added resellers (VARs) and partners in the future. PJ : How long do you think it will take large PLM vendors that have semantic search capabilities of sorts (e.g., Oracle/Endeca, SAP/HANA/T-Rex , Dassault Read More
