The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is leading a collaborative project with industrial partners to standardize 3-D models to exchange information across design and manufacturing in one seamless “digital thread.” The Design to Manufacturing and Inspection Project will make use of a new international standard for incorporating computer-readable product and manufacturing information (PMI) into 3D models that do not require human interpretation of graphical depictions and data re-entry.

The Past, Present and Future of Engineering Simulation

Bill Clark, EVP at CD-adapco

“Whereas previous generations of engineers could take some comfort in the ‘safety net’ of extensive physical testing to rescue them from the occasional poor prediction, CAE is increasingly the victim of its own success as simulation continues to displace hardware testing as industry’s verification method of choice. Although this increased confidence in simulation is well-deserved (and has been hard-earned through many years of successful prediction), it brings with it a great deal of pressure to ‘get the answer right’ every time.”
