Introducing Autodesk Fusion Production: Applying the Power of the Cloud and IIoT to Make Manufacturing Smarter

The manufacturing industry is experiencing unprecedented change and the convergence of design and manufacturing is creating new opportunities to reduce costs and shorten product lifecycles. Traditional supply chains are being replaced by more flexible supply networks – but only for companies that can adapt to this change. Many still struggle just to keep up with what is happening on their own shop floors. Experts at Autodesk have been working on a thoroughly modern solution that uses the power of the cloud and the Internet of Things to address the new challenge presented by what they like to refer to as the “uberization” of manufacturing.

Siemens’ latest release of Simcenter 3D advances computer-aided engineering and simulation

Siemens announces the latest version of Simcenter 3D, its flagship environment for multi-disciplinary computer-aided engineering (CAE), with new comprehensive solutions across multiple simulation disciplines. Simcenter 3D is an advanced stand-alone CAE application for analysts and discipline experts that works with data from any CAD source. Because it is built on the Siemens NXTM platform, it also works seamlessly with NX CAD. With more enhancements than any previous release, Simcenter 3D, part of Siemens’s Simcenter portfolio of simulation and test solutions for predictive engineering analytics, looks to revolutionize how simulation engineers can help drive design direction in industries such as automotive, aerospace and industrial machinery.
