Prep Work+

  1. Write your paper/presentation first – You will be able to give a much more accurate summary
  2. Review and understand any requirements for writing your abstract (length, style requirements, audience)
  3. Consider the audience – Will other academics in your field read this abstract? Should it be accessible to a new reader or somebody from another field?
  4. Determine the type of abstract you must write- informative or descriptive?
    • Descriptive abstracts explain the purpose, goal, and methods of your research but leave out the results section. These are typically only 100-200 words.
    • Informative abstracts are like a condensed version of your paper, giving an overview of everything in your research including the results. These are much longer than descriptive abstracts, and can be anywhere from a single paragraph to a whole page long.

Writing the Abstract+

  1. Explain the problem at hand and your methods - What problem is your research trying to better understand or solve and can you describe the evidence to support the claim
  2. Describe the results – General findings, what answer did you reach from the research
  3. Give the Conclusion
  4. Provide helpful information and write the abstract separate from the paper
  5. Avoid being to specific - You should not need to explain or define any terms in your abstract, a reference is all that is needed. Avoid being too explicit in your summary and stick to a very broad overview of your work
  6. Edit your work and get feedback from someone

Hot Topics

1. Model Based Systems Engineering

Model Based Systems Engineering on the 3D Experience platform has  the potential for providing significant insights into what our real product requirements are.  It provides a framework for linking those requirements to product functions and helps us organize these elements into Functional, Logical & Physical architectures for trade study analysis.

  • Addressing needs to manage increased complexities with system &  system of systems definition
  • Addressing requirement verification challenges through product qualification/certification
  • Leveraging simulation & automation of virtual product testing in advance of physical testing prior to production
  • Addressing analysis of product architectures trade studies for optimizing design concept architectures

–Architectural Centric Virtual Integration Process (ACVIP):  Demonstrate how to leverage this concept with the 3DX Platform

2. Virtual Twin

Virtual Twin or Digital Twin have many different & similar definitions when it comes to being implemented within our industries.  Suffice it to say, we want to leverage how we define, analyze, test, fabricate, support & improve our products utilizing data connections between the various artifacts.  The 3D Experience Platform plays a significant role with connecting these artifacts together.

  • SIMULIA capability integrated into the platform enabling virtual qualification of design modifications
  • Leveraging Model Based Engineering (MBE) with virtual factory design/planning
  • Predicting product performance while in service
  • Obtaining real performance data from products in service to adapt the next product version
  • Designing health awareness systems to measure actual product cycles to eliminate unnecessary maintenance
  • Explore “what-if” scenarios to explore additional applications of current products

3. Sustainability

Leveraging the 3D Experience Platform to improve how our industries do business while improving the world we live in.

  • Optimizing Factory Design to reduce our Carbon Footprint
  • Optimizing products to eliminate waste
  • Recapturing or salvage of products used in production (3R’s)
  • Re-use of design equity on new product development
  • Regulations & REACH Compliance: Leveraging PLM to quantify product contents

–Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC)

–Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS)

–Hazardous Material Management (HMM)

4. Manufacturing Operations

Manufacturing Operations have become much more inclusive on the 3D Experience Platform.  Extending the CAD/CAM strengths through process definition, manufacturing instructions, shop floor execution & manufacturing operations management.  This transformation has created many opportunities to leverage the digital thread through to product delivery.  With these opportunities, come additional challenges to transform how we produce products.  Help the community by bringing your experiences to address the following & more!

  • DELMIA Process Planner: Leveraging collaboration with design while creating the manufacturing BoM and instructions
  • Interfaces with other MES/ERP systems for shop floor execution
  • Lifecycle and Configuration Management of manufacturing artifacts
  • Additive Manufacturing  (Former Hot Topic)

–Leveraging AM with manufacturing tooling

–Challenges with maintaining quality during AM production

5. Digital Asset Management

A company's equity is not just in financial equity & capital assets.  The information we have and create are of vital importance to the ability to sustain and flourish.  We need to explore how the 3D Experience can retain our digital assets and leverage them for creating new and novel products and services.

  • Migration to the 3DX Platform
  • New to the platform: Getting Started with the 3DX Platform
  • Managing object lifecycles in the 3DX Platform:  How to customize or configure lifecycles for various types of objects
  • Implement company processes into the 3DX Platform
  • Integration into other Data Centric applications i.e. SAP
  • 3DX Interoperability with 3rd party applications & how to integrate with systems that are not Dassault Systemes’ Products

Track Descriptions

Click each track description to learn more.

Analyze & Simulate+

Breakout sessions included in the Analyze & Simulate track are focused on the processes, methods and tools for modeling and synthesis of engineering systems and for engineering analysis and simulation of products. Typical sessions describe end-user scenarios of how realistic simulations are developed to depict a product's physical behavior including static, dynamic, mechanical and thermal operating-load environments, as well as the performance of ergonomic studies for a product's assembly, operation and maintenance. Techniques that are covered include finite element analysis of structural components, fluid dynamics, kinematics, multi-body dynamics, multi-disciplined optimization of a product's shape, performance, cost and knowledge-based engineering as related to the functional performance of a product. Best practices are shared for virtually simulating and optimizing products by accommodating multiple concurrent, and generally conflicting, operational requirements of a product.
