Traditional tools of the engineering trade donít accommodate todayís need for cross-team collaboration. From using different mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) applications to working on projects with stakeholders located all over the world, engineers have to overcome various obstacles to get the job done. Learn how technology can help streamline communications and collaboration, ultimately setting up your team for success.
To be more competitive, small and medium suppliers are increasingly using Computer Aid Engineering (CAE) solutions. Download this white paper to see how IBM Cluster Solutions, powered by Intel Xeon 5500 Series maximizes the total cost of ownership for CAE environments and extend innovation in virtual products for manufactures and suppliers alike.
CPDA’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) research programs target the critical decisions in Product Lifecycle Management challenging Design, Engineering, Manufacturing, and Information Technology managers and executives. CPDA’s PLM collaborative research programs provide indepth analysis of strategies, products, issues, processes, technologies, trends, case studies, and surveys for assessing technology, business goals and objectives, and implementation road maps.
The ABAQUS/Explicit simulation to predict tracking consists of several steps. First, find the belt shape, as it is stretched around the rollers. Second, apply tensioning device forces and roller misalignments. Finally, initiate belt rotation, transient and steady state.
The dynamic interaction between these parts is simulated using ABAQUS/Explicit. With the model, it is possible to predict the kinematics of the impact mechanism, including torque spike characteristics and driving speed. Key characteristics of the model have been validated by tests.
This "paradigm shift" includes a move from a predominance of physical testing for product prototype validation to simulation-led problem solving and performance validation, using Computer Aided Engineering, and Design (CAE and CAD) tools.
Today 3D CAD models are driving the world's product development processes. Finite Element Analysis, Rapid Prototyping, NC programming, Data Exchange, and other downstream applications rely to a growing extent on the direct use of CAD models to streamline processes saving time and money.

Capturing product knowledge has proven to be very difficult and early attempts at building systems to capture and reuse knowledge have failed because they were too limited technically, required users to be able to develop computer codes (or programs) to embody knowledge rules and actions, and they did not work with common product design tools such as CAD and PDM systems.
