CAD Interoperability
    The ability to share data among disparate CAD systems ? and especially among such programs Pro/Engineer, CATIA, Unigraphics, and SDRC I-DEAS ? has presented major challenges throughout the history of the CAD industry. Initiatives range from the use of direct translators, neutral file formats (ie. STEP, IGES), and native-to-native feature-based file translation, to facilitating data exchange via a common modeling kernel (ie. PTC?s Granite One, Spatial?s ACIS, UGS Parasolid.) Are we even close to achieving the goal of seamless integration, in which a model created in system A can be imported and used with confidence in system B? Use this forum to post your questions and comments, as well as any helpful tips and techniques you?d like to offer on CAD interoperability.

Design for Manufacturability (DFM)
    We?ve already received a lot of feedback from our readers on this subject. Whether it?s the need for better communication between design and manufacturing professionals, or the need for tools that more effectively link design and manufacturing, the goal is the same ? to design a product not only with respect to how well it will look and perform, but how it will be manufactured. Use this forum to post your questions, comments, and insights regarding DFM and to share how DFM initiatives are getting results within your organization.

PLM/PDM/CPC/CPD
    Product Lifecycle Management, Product Data Management, Collaborative Product Commerce, Collaborative Product Development ? all of these initiatives strive to make greater use of the digital product model throughout the enterprise to reduce costs and increase profitability. But the big question is, is it happening in your organization? What do you believe is needed to make it work? Use this forum to post your questions, comments, and recommendations regarding the integration of these kinds of methodologies alongside traditional CAD/CAM, CAE and PDM product design and development efforts.

Can the U.S. Afford to Export Its Manufacturing Economy?
    Global competition is driving an increasing number of small to medium-sized manufacturers either out of business or out of the U.S. and into places like China. Conventional wisdom says that this type of global competition ultimately drives costs down and benefits both buyers and sellers throughout the global marketplace. But what are the hidden costs? And what are the implications for the future of the U.S. economy if we continue to export manufacturing jobs?
