After a long dry spell triggered in part by the global downturn in the economy, manufacturing is enjoying an economic and technological resurgence. According to the Institute of Supply Management (ISM), American manufacturing continues to improve.
“Display Manager is our most significant functionality update since the move to HPC itself,” said Eric Morales, Engineer and Design Analyst at Ping Golf. “In most cases we are saving a full day of time or more. We get instant feedback, make the change and have enough time to view the results of those changes the same day. Before the upgrade we wouldn’t get those results until mid to late morning the next day, and wouldn’t get the updated structure until end of the next day. Display Manager has greatly improved the speed and efficiency of our process.”
This Week in HPC: HPC Gets the Drop on Design Simulation: Collaboration with Dell, Intel, and Altair
“Impact analysis or drop testing is one of the most important stages of product design and development, and software that can simulate this testing accurately yields dramatic cost and time-to-market benefits for manufacturers. Dell, Intel and Altair have collaborated to analyze a virtual drop test solution with integrated simulation and optimization analysis, delivering proven gains in speed and accuracy. With this solution, engineers can explore more design alternatives for improved product robustness and reliability.”
