Additive Manufacturing

The scope of additive manufacturing – a.k.a. 3D printing – is now expanding beyond rapid prototyping into industrial applications of both tool-product and direct-part production. How can simulation help get reliability back into AM designs? Covering topics like generating lattice structures, calibrating the material, optimizing the manufacturing process, and in-service performance, effective AM design gets it right the first time. 

Additive sessions may include (but are not required to have) content on composite materials.

Data Analytics

We live in the age of Big Data, which now encompasses internal and external sources, structured and unstructured formats, and with the growth of the Internet of Things, the volume of data available is exploding. What is the best way to deliver that information the way users want to receive it? Through tools like predictive analytics, machine learning and data mining, organizations can deliver real-time information intelligence to help improve business processes and gain competitive advantage.

Generative Design

Generative design is a form finding process that can mimic nature's evolutionary approach to design. It can start with design goals and then explore innumerable possible permutations of a solution to find the best option. 

Generative Design sessions may include (but are not required to have) content on Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and/or Topological Structure Optimization.


Making the Leap to 3DEXPERIENCE

The shift to 3DEXPERIENCE is more than a new release; it’s a new structure and architecture for the product development process. With a stronger focus on industry-specific solutions, new features, and a stronger integration between products, 3DX represents a more holistic, efficient, and effective approach. 


Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM)

Companies spend a lot of time and effort on 3D solutions, but barriers remain between different teams and components of the manufacturing process. Implementing a Manufacturing Operations Management system can improve your manufacturing processes through improved work instructions, new automation opportunities, and enhanced data collection and analysis.
