Reverse REVERSE Engineering: Beat out the Competition

OEMs and Services Companies are competing for their customers’ in-service products. Often, challenges include:

• Getting a detailed analysis of competitive products to find an edge
• Legacy designs often exist only as drawings, outdated CAD models, or have no documentation at all
• Competitive advantage continues to increase as other manufacturers reduce costs and speed up time-to-market

How Do You Efficiently Meet the Personalization Needs for Medical Equipment?

medical-manufacturing-personalization

The medical device industry in the United States is expected to reach $208 billion by the year 2023 and regulatory inspections are increasing at a rate of 300%. Along with increasing demands and liabilities, the growing need for personalization in the medical industry requires CAD models that can conform to patient-specific anatomical structures.

Due to the reliance on physical and clinical testing, both of which are extremely expensive and add significant time to the development process, NX Convergent Modeling provides a single virtual testing environment that can speed up the personalization process without neglecting safety concerns.

What Is Virtual Commissioning?

what-is-virtual-commissioning-manufacturing

The challenges in the manufacturing and logistics industries are mounting. To keep up with the unprecedented pressure of competition, many companies introduce increasingly sophisticated automation systems. However, this tends to be a complicated task. In order to get automation systems working fluently, Virtual Commissioning is imperative to manufacturing businesses.

Nearly two-thirds of commissioning time is spent testing and fixing errors within the control software once the hardware has already been assembled on site. By utilizing both the software platform for Digital Twin modeling and virtual commissioning- testing, debugging, and validating can be done from your computer, before even connecting it to the real system.
