MCADCafe Weekly Review June 19th, 2014

Along with over 2,000 other attendees, we just returned from the PTC Live Global 2014 conference and exhibition in Boston. It was a very good show at a very good venue — the Boston Convention Center.

The two biggest things we noted at the conference were PTC’s involvment and commitment to the Internet of Things (IoT) and the introduction of PTC Creo 3.0. We also noted a more upbeat crowd attending the show this year than in years past. The attendees we spoke with said the lighter attitude was due to PTC’s announcements, PTC’s corporate direction, and an economy that continues to slowly improve.

On-Demand Communication For Design Teams
June 17, 2014  by Nathan Dunn

Social, connected, conceptual, and instinctive are the four pillars of the 3DEXPERIENCE—the next step for the design community!

We should all know what these words mean on their own, but how does that definition change in the context of the design environment?

Let’s explore the definitions of the first two pillars: social and connected.

MIL-STD-31000A is released, but now the creators are focused on pushing out the message of MBE. Vendors are developing great presentations that circulate around how their software products support MBE. And now, the original Model-Based Enterprise creators, have put together a slick new website. This information is all software tool agnostic.

The Pioneer Spirit Prevails!

For hundreds of years, ordinary people have forged new paths, pioneering ahead of the masses to find new ways—explorers, innovators and entrepreneurs. Every field of study has those special individuals who show us better & brighter ideas. Some of my revered pioneers are a little eclectic: Leonardo da Vinci, Eli Whitney, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Erle Halliburton, Ray Kroc, Ed Malzahn, among many others.

I am proud to say that I’ve had the opportunity to work for companies founded by two of these greats.

Editor’s Note: This is the third installment of a series of four evaluation articles of CAD/PDM systems for SMBs.

Overview

Siemens’s Teamcenter Rapid Start is a product data management (PDM) solution that is preconfigured, yet extensible. As a preconfigured deployment option of Teamcenter, it is intended to address the most common PDM needs of SMBs. With its “simplified” installation process, Teamcenter Rapid Start applies preconfigured best practices to common engineering tasks and processes for SMBs.

In a stand-alone environment, all server and all client applications are installed on each machine. In a shared environment, server applications are installed on a single server. Each machine has network access to the server and has only the client applications installed.

The video that follows shows how to get started with Teamcenter Rapid Start PDM, and includes demos on CAD data management, document management, and process management.
