Ann Arbor, MI, May 12, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces that Dr. Andreas Vlahinos, Principal at Advanced Engineering Solutions, will make a keynote presentation at the upcoming Product & Manufacturing Innovation Driven by Digital Design & Simulation Workshop. The workshop will take place at the UI LABS Innovation Center, home to DMDII, in Chicago, Illinois, on June 6 and 7.
In his presentation, Computer-Aided Innovation Tools, Dr. Vlahinos will describe and demonstrate a practical set of computer-aided innovation tools that assist engineers and manufacturers in increasing their innovation skills. These include:
* Tools that use the “Theory of Inventive Problem Solving” (TRIZ) to generate innovative ideas for the most difficult engineering and manufacturing challenges.
* A Mechanism Synthesis tool, that generates, in seconds, several concept mechanisms that follow a given path while its supports remain within a given domain.
* Interactive Multi-Physics Topology Optimization tools that generate the optimum topology/shape of a component for a given structural, thermal, or fluid requirement.
* Tools that generate Programmable Materials (meta-materials with predefined properties).
CIMdata’s Product & Manufacturing Innovation Driven by Digital Design & Simulation Workshop, is the must-attend event for industrial organizations and solution providers interested in learning more about model-driven engineering strategies and the solutions that will enable on-going product and manufacturing innovation to create competitive advantage, minimize total lifecycle costs, and drive top-line revenue growth. It will provide attendees with independent experiences from industrial companies and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and critical relationships germinate and take root.
CIMdata’s thought-leadership team of Don Tolle, Dr. Keith Meintjes, Dr. Ken Versprille, Dr. Suna Polat, and Frank Popielas, will be on hand in Chicago to facilitate the workshop and associated discussions.
