Additive Manufacturing Modeling, Simulation, and Lifecycle Management

The expansion of additive manufacturing has created a need for simulation and data management tools that will help engineers optimize the 3D printing process in order to reduce production costs, increase robustness/reliability and improve performance by optimizing design. This blog post will explore how MSC’s simulation tools are currently being used by customers to advance 3D printing.

Materials Lifecycle Management for Product Innovation

Manufacturing has become much more complex than it was in the past. New designs are created every day, data flows during engineering processes are becoming huge and the number of engineers working together is growing. These improvements bring some challenges in tracing the data and managing the processes and workflows. A materials lifecycle management (MLM) system is a tool that focuses on capturing and managing data all the way from test data to the consumption of this data by CAE applications. It gives the ability to automate test processes, have complete traceability of all the data in the system, and it gives a very deep client integration. It ensures that engineers are using a consistent source of approved materials derived from traceable integrated processes. Furthermore, it is web-based and very easy to install. MLM eliminates a significant amount of tedious manual data management activities and gives engineers the ability to focus solely on innovations and new product designs.

Value of Simulation to Material Testing and Development

This article was originally posted by Bob Schmitz, Senior Business Development Manager for e-Xstream engineering on Composites World magazine. Traditionally we have designed, characterized new materials with physical testing by using simple coupon tests, which are affordable and the results have generally been accepted as fact, even if the sample size is small. However, material science has …

Composites in the Automotive Industry: Forum and Workshop October

Some of the most significant challenges facing the automotive industry include raw material cost, light-weighting and achieving mass production. These are direct consequences of environmental requirements becoming more rigorous as concern about carbon emissions grows. Moreover, the use of carbon fiber is an important part of the answer to these problems but brings on its own set of issues that need to …
