Four Ways Simulation is Improving Product Development

Growing up, one of my friend’s parents was a structural engineer. I can still remember him laboring away at his desk, measuring and calculating any number of design options to determine which was the safest. When CAD was developed, it felt like a God-send. None of us would have guessed the industry could get more […]

How 3D simulation can improve our cities

Successful smart city projects are scarce. An excessively one-sided approach to complex issues and a fragmentation in stakeholders create an ideal breeding ground for failure. Moreover, the term is now used for lots of things, and so any practical possibilities remain vague. Who will take the initiative? Who will invest? A 3D platform for simulating […]

The 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace – The Amazon of Manufacturing

Ask any engineer or designer about creating the next new thing, engineering it, and prototyping it, and they will tell you countless stories of trial and error before they succeeded making their ideas a reality. In the past decade,  the internet has become an integral part of the design process and when it comes to […]

What’s to be Done About AI and Machine Learning?

AI and machine learning are the new “big data.” Business executives are being told that if they don’t adopt the latest artificial intelligence tools, their companies are going to be disrupted, left to struggle and perish in the dustbin of the digital laggards. Except that AI and machine learning are not “the latest” and without […]

The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform: The Secret behind the Design of Every Electronic Vehicle?

The past several years have seen a surge in innovation across the automotive industry, with the greatest shake-up in the status-quo coming from Electric Vehicles (EV) with Tesla leading the charge. But it isn’t just the change from traditional gas engines to electric. The entire market is seeing changes. Autonomous vehicles are under development by […]


Simulation in Architecture, Engineering and ConstructionProduct, Nature and Life in Architecture, Engineering and Construction Modern architectural designs involve innovative shapes and new materials. The structural behavior of such structures needs to be predicted accurately in order to achieve and maintain structural safety, reliability and utility. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a seamless way to model and […]

How The Aerospace and Defense Industry is Using Tomorrow’s Tech Today

Given how ubiquitous flying is today, we often forget that humans have really only been able to fly in a practical sense for about 70-years. In this short period of time, we have seen remarkable leaps in technology, not the least of which being wireless internet at 35,000-feet. The aviation industry is poised for another […]

Making the Enterprise Digital-Friendly

A recent Harvey Nash/KPMG worldwide survey of 4,500 CIOs and technology executives found that 43% thought “resistance to change” was the biggest impediment to digital transformation. Resisting the resistance, 41% of the organizations surveyed reported they have an enterprise-wide digital strategy in place, up from 27% just two years ago. Digital transformation is what currently […]

The Need for Speed: New Innovations Will Make Travel Faster

“I feel the need, the need for speed,” was the iconic line from the 1986 blockbuster “Top Gun.” Fortunately for Maverick and travelers alike, air travel may become much faster, thanks to a new ceramic coating developed by researchers from China and the United Kingdom. Air travel has come a long way in the short […]
