To master the complexities of global competition, you need to employ tools for advanced performance and adapt leading-edge technologies. NX™, the product development solution from Siemens PLM Software, helps you do just that.
NX supports every aspect of product development, from concept design through engineering and manufacturing. You can rely on its integrated toolset to do it all: coordinate disciplines, preserve data integrity and design intent, and streamline the entire process.
NX’s broad-based, and powerful suite of integrated applications does all the heavy work and boosts productivity, freeing you to focus on making smarter decisions and delivering better products faster and more efficiently.
Sure, NX provides a powerful and adaptable toolset for computer-aided design, engineering and manufacturing (CAD/CAM/CAE). But there’s more. NX helps refine development processes and encourage collaboration among team members by offering integrated data management, process automation, decision support and other tools.
NX has gained an international fan base as more and more companies benefit from the same product development solutions you will enjoy, such as:
A streamlined product development process that allows you to work smarter, not harder, and to determine new ways to drive innovation and capitalize on market opportunities.
Up-to-date product information and analytics to help you make quicker and smarter decisions on engineering, design and manufacturing problems.
Accurate product performance and manufacturability evaluations through the use of virtual models and simulation.
Continuous validation of designs for compliance with industry, company and customer requirements so products are “right the first time.” Effective collaboration among partners and suppliers throughout the value chain through the use of technologies for sharing, communicating and protecting product and manufacturing process information.
A comprehensive, integrated toolset that streamlines the entire process, encourages innovation, provides seamless data sharing among team members, and offers continuous support from concept through manufacturing.
NX is very powerful. It gives us tools that move seamlessly between the different phases of design and manufacturing, and it integrates the whole cycle.

The NX Advantage
NX stands above all other software with its comprehensive and powerful toolset for product development.
The NX suite:
- Analyzes conceptual design, 3D modeling and documentation to produce advanced solutions.
- Tackles challenges in structural, motion, thermal, flow, multiphysics and optimization applications through multidiscipline simulations.
- Suggests solutions for tooling, machining, quality inspection – all aspects of part manufacturing.
Across-the-Board Product Development Integration
NX seamlessly shares the same product model data and tools with all technical domains to create unified solutions to every development task. This both enhances and expedites information sharing and process changes among all team members.
Employing Teamcenter® software, a collaborative product development management (cPDM) solution from Siemens PLM Software, NX establishes a single source of product and process knowledge, coordinates all phases of development, standardizes processes and accelerates decision making.
High-performance tools and leading-edge technology make it “Advantage – NX” when it comes to addressing extremely difficult problems. Complex geometry and massive assemblies are no match for the design tools included in NX. Other software wilts when faced with demanding CAE challenges; with its advanced simulation capabilities, NX thrives and significantly reduces the need for physical prototyping. In short, you will improve your manufacturing processes once you engage these most advanced tooling and machining technologies incorporated by NX.
NX’s open architecture freely imports solutions from other vendors in the digital product development process, and in doing so protects your existing IT investments.
- Customers increase the rate of new product introductions.
- Development times decrease by more than 30 percent.
- Design-analysis iterations shorten by more than 70 percent.
- Computer numerical control (CNC) programming time falls by up to 90 percent.
