Turning designs into reality: The Manufacturability paradigm The role of design has become critical in the 21st century of innovation and knowledge based economy. Research also indicates that around 70% of the product cost is committed during the design stage itself. Hence, it is important to design and provide ideas for changes in designs at an early stage, in order to make it easy and cost effective during the manufacturing process. ‘Design for Manufacturing’ is the process of proactively designing products to optimize all the manufacturing functions; and assure the best cost, quality, reliability, safety, time-to-market, and customer satisfaction. In this paper, we describe how good designs can be manufactured with ease, the primary tool being a good CAD system accompanied by a virtual design assistant tool for DFM. It showcases how Creo and DFMPro give the designers the freedom and flexibility to create innovative designs; at the same time ensuring that it is in accordance with the recommended manufacturing guidelines. 0

The Role oF Product Data Management in Improving Engineering Efficiency Research on today’s manufacturing environment makes three things clear. The first is that manufacturers must innovate to capture their share of lower sales volumes. The second is that they must bring products to market faster to combat hungry, global competitors. The third is that manufacturers are running very lean due to price pressure from customers and the recent economic downturn. The combination of tough markets, reduced headcount, tight budgets, and aggressive new product development targets means that manufacturers need to be able to design and develop products extremely efficiently to get the most out of their engineering efforts. 0

PLM Neutral Customization Framework A Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) application is same for any organization's product information as an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) application is to the organization's human and transactional information. Proper selection of the PLM application and its effective implementation help the organization to manage multiple products efficiently. All PLM applications provide generic features mainly from product data management perspective. PLM vendors also provide Application Programmer Interfaces (API) and customization hooks to extend, configure or tweak the out‐of‐the‐box (OOTB) functionality in order to fulfill the business objectives of the organization. However, these APIs and customization processes are proprietary to the PLM vendor. 0
Plasma-Therm Completes Successful Management Buyout with Help from Adept Engineering Document Management In January 2009, four Plasma-Therm managers pooled their resources and bought controlling interest back. During that period, the engineering manager had to organize an entire engineering department, and replace the document management solution from the former owner’s PLM system as quickly and seamlessly as possible. “We knew we needed to purchase some sort of product data management system due to the complexity of our product and the dynamic nature of our business,” said Pizzo, engineering manager. “Our systems have anywhere from 2,000 to 10,000 parts on them. Trying to manage Inventor assemblies with that number of parts along with their various revisions and changes is impossible to imagine without some sort of a document management system.” 0

Knowledge Based Engineering across Product Realization Knowledge based engineering (KBE) is a technique that provides ways to capture and deploy knowledge across the complete product realization value chain. A proper implementation roadmap and maximum control at hands of engineers are the key factors for successfully leveraging KBE. Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) can be seen as a tool for capturing and reusing knowledge during the product development. It focuses on how to capture and formalize knowledge so as to enable shorter product development time. 0
