We're proud to be working with Aerion Supersonic during their rollout of the Siemens portfolio. Providing a broad engineering software portfolio and an extensive history of implementation, Applied CAx and Siemens Digital Industries Software will allow Aeron Supersonic to realize the digital thread from design, analysis, test, and certification to streamlining of future manufacturing.

Applied CAx and Predictive Engineering have been working closely with our customer SHB Power Plant Engineering on the modeling of bio-fuel power generation in STAR-CCM+. A local company in Portland, Oregon, SHB specializes in upgrading boilers to increase efficiency and reduce emissions. This has been a unique project that has involved software support for Simcenter STAR-CCM+, engineering consulting services, and technology transfer so that SHB can run the models in-house for further design exploration.

In this case study, the focus was a sea-water dredging system and the purpose was to evaluate the sediment flow path of fine silt injected into the stream. The client was concerned that inline concentration measurements of sediment were far lower than expected values. They were interested in gaining a better understanding of how sediment was distributed through their pipe system. For the CFD consulting team at Predictive Engineering, this analysis was an interesting opportunity to showcase the multi-phase capabilities of STAR-CCM+.

In a seamless transition, we recently set up a new support system for our customers. The good news? From the outside, nothing has changed. Customers can still use their existing methods to reach us for FEMAP, NX CAD, NX CAM, Solid Edge, Simcenter, STAR-CCM+ and Teamcenter support questions.

But from the inside, there are many advantages with our new support system. With an intuitive design and top notch features, Freshdesk lets us integrate various channels into a single ticketing platform.

When was the last time you evaluated your relationship with your CAD vendor? The most powerful, flexible, and innovative product development solution in the industry, NX for Design has the features, performance, and capabilities to help you get product to market faster than ever before.

With NX, you can consolidate on a single solution with a single data set, a single user interface, and lower total cost of ownership. You are concerned about data. We understand. We have the tools needed to help you bring all of your data forward to NX with the highest quality, and minimum amount of effort. With synchronous technology, you can make any changes needed to the data to help you execute your design changes.

Siemens Digital Industries Software has put together a good succinct article on moving from Creo to NX, and includes a profile on Team Penske and their managed migration process from PTC to NX.

RandyEllsworthSiemens' blog series, Beyond the Forum highlights the champions and community members working in the forum mines day & night.

And in exciting news, the very first article features Applied CAx’s Randy Ellsworth. Randy is known far & wide for his PLM prowess, but in this revealing Q&A, Randy talks about his early days as a painter in Eugene, Ore., his decade-plus as an enlisted sailor in the Navy, and how he came into the world of PLM.

Says Randy: “Most Teamcenter administrators fall into the job, coming from either Engineering or IT, and don’t necessarily choose it. It chooses them and I’m no exception as you’ll read later. But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy it and am extremely thankful for the experience and relationships I’ve built over the years.”  

Randy provides strategic consulting, aligning Teamcenter with business needs to generate an architecture, landscape and road map.
