Streamlining decisions between designers and analysts

JEC Europe 2013 - Siemens PLM Software introduces a new workflow that enables analysts and designers to communicate unambiguously to make smarter decisions and better products.

In today’s competitive environment, there is less time than ever to get innovative products to market. Due to the complexity of designing composite products, organizations run the risk of failing to achieve first-to-market advantage. One of the most significant bottlenecks is the lack of communication between the analyst and the designer. The exchange of information between these disciplines is critical to the successful development of a composite product, but currently this exchange is not possible due to lack of interoperability and incompatible data formats.

 

The Fibersim 13 portfolio of software for composites engineering from Siemens PLM Software introduces a new workflow that enables analysts and designers to communicate unambiguously to make smarter decisions and better products. The analysis representation can be brought directly into the CAD design environment, allowing the designer to visualize, understand and compare their composite definition to the analyst’s. The designer is able to implement both information and geometry directly ensuring that only those changes intended by the analyst are applied. In addition, analysts often define ply requirements by elements or clusters of elements on a meshed surface, thus creating rough approximations of the boundaries. Fibersim 13 gives the designer the tools to refine the boundary definition as provided by the analyst to obtain ply boundaries that can be used for detailed design.
