In case you haven’t heard, Dassault Systèmes announced a really exciting acquisition today. The SIMULIA brand is expanding with the addition of FE-DESIGN to the growing 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This will extend SIMULIA market leading solutions for design optimization. Check out the News Release for the official statement.

If you’re unfamiliar with FE-DESIGN products, you’ve been missing out! :-) Headquartered in Karlsruhe, Germany, FE-DESIGN developed TOSCA Structure and TOSCA Fluid, two leading optimization technologies for both FEA and CFD simulations. These tools provide exceptional advantages to the simulation analyst, helping to create innovative and more easily manufactured design early in the product development process to deliver better products to the market faster.

  • TOSCA Structure is the market leading technology for structural optimization, leveraging a variety of FEA packages. It allows for rapid and reliable design of lightweight, rigid and durable components and systems. Using topology optimization with TOSCA Structure technologies can help determine optimal design proposals during the design concept phase. Further detail improvements through shape and bead optimization make these designs ready for production and manufacture.
  • TOSCA Fluid is so far the only available system for topology optimization of channel flow problems. Starting from an initial design space, an optimized design of a flow channel is determined automatically by TOSCA Fluid. With only one CFD solver run an optimized structure is derived (e.g. structural redesign with significantly reduced pressure drop). This unique technology allows an economic topology optimization of industrial large scale flow applications.

Imagine the possibilities for increased efficiency and creative design when using these technologies with in association with current SIMULIA products like Isight, our process automation and design optimization solution. Such a combination will provide a comprehensive suite of applications to support decisions ranging from the shape of a product to entire business processes.

You can learn more about design optimization from this SIMULIA webinar replay.

Last but not least, join us at the SIMULIA Customer Conference, May 21-24th, 2013 in Vienna, Austria to learn more about design optimization, TOSCA technologies and how they can improve your simulation & design efficiency. Looking forward to seeing you there! :-D

Boost efficiency by streamlining digital communication

If you’re more into comics, check out directly the bottom of this post :wink:

From our recent case study about Jakob Müller, thinkers of the international Industrial Equipment (IE) and manufacturing sector say that to satisfy customer requirements companies must be able to rapidly transfer development and production of a product to any of its globally located sites. A key element of companies’ demand and supply equation is easy access to data regardless of where it is located. It is a matter of efficiency. Any effective leader understands this especially in a world that is more connected than ever. But while being connected facilitates communication and opens new channels for consumers to express their needs it also puts pressure on companies to satisfy their customers’ growing expectations and still make a profit. Customize and cater to local preferences, yes, but not at any price.

A dilemma.

But not for everyone. IE companies in the know can produce more products tailored to customer expectations while keeping costs in check by using tools that provide all need-to-know actors with easy access to product data, previously designed components, intellectual property, and workflows from anywhere in the world, seamlessly and naturally. Products are released to market faster because bottlenecks inherent with inefficient management of a multi-site development organization are avoided.

Not possible you say?

Well, as a matter of fact, it is possible by working with a single source of product truth in a unique and unified environment. No more wasting time looking for information. No more errors because decisions were made based on outdated data. Single Source for Speed Industry Solution Experience is the answer for IE companies with a global footprint that deal with the complexities of industrial machine production in a digitally connected age and that need to integrate various disciplines like mechanical, electrical, piping and structural in the same data model. All actors can share, collaborate, exchange ideas and work as a community from anywhere on a single source of 3D product data. Utopic, you say? It is already being done thanks to 3DEXPERIENCE  :-)
