Solid Edge How Are You Adapting to Industry Changes

At the Next Generation Engineering Workshop series with Siemens, PROLIM presented on topics related to Solid Edge and the future of engineering at the University of Texas, Dallas. The University of Texas, Dallas has significant industry connections with companies like Texas Instruments, Erickson, Lockheed and Bell Helicopter.

On hand to speak to more than 200 students and customers were PROLIM CEO, Prabhu Patil, and Solid Edge application engineer, Ben Weisenberger.

If you weren’t able to attend the event, here’s a snippet of what they presented:

The Solid Edge Advantage

Solid Edge’s latest iteration, ST10, provides some incredible advantages for design engineers:

  • Solid Edge Flow Simulation: With FloEFD embedded in Solid Edge, engineers can front-load simulation in the design process, making it easier to fix problems sooner.
  • Manufacturing: You can integrate CAM and 3D printing tools with Solid Edge, making your CNC machine tools more efficient.
  • Technical Publications: Create detailed illustrations of your designs and develop work instructions, interactive part catalogues, product manuals and more. The best part: Your publications will update when you change your designs.
  • Data Management: Fast access to associated drawings, enhanced revision management and faster and simpler setup and administration. Plus, there’s room for upgrading to Teamcenter for a total PLM experience.
  • Solid Edge Portal: Take your work and files to cloud for better collaboration.

Exploring Solid Edge Capabilities

Change: Industry 4.0 and Adaptation

The way products are realized is changing: advanced robotics, intelligent automation and additive manufacturing. Now, the way ideas come to life is changing, too: crowdsourcing design, systems thinking and lifecycle analytics.

In order to adapt to an increasing technological world, there are four steps that every company has to achieve:

  • Engage with users. The right customer information at the right time.
  • Have intelligent models. Be able to accurately predict the product and manufacturing performance.
  • Realize the product. Integrate the virtual data and the physical product development.
  • Adaptive systems. Without intelligent, innovative systems to adapt to changing markets, products and customer needs, an innovative product is not enough.

This change isn’t a new phenomenon. The adaptation of industry is directly correlated to our changing technology.
