    Industry 4.0's effect on engineering

    The manufacturing industry and the engineering field have always been connected - and industry 4.0 is changing both!

    IndustryWeek said, "The most promising emerging technologies of Industry 4.0 are improvements in operational processes, computational workflows, and new design tools that help engineers in manufacturing see the future more clearly than ever before."

    Notable changes stem from additive manufacturing, development of new computational models, and connections between analog and data structures.

    Using these computational models, engineers collaborating in different locations have access and transparency throughout the design and manufacturing process over the lifecycle of a product.Traditional ways of modeling new product designs make it too easy to break the models because they don’t incorporate the full complexity of the multiphysics involved; new Digital Twins are more robust, and enable designers to help maximize the manufacturer’s capabilities—and ability to innovate.Read More
