How Key Technologies are Converging for a Smarter, More Connected World

The future of smart, connected product development is where data analytics, simulation, and high-performance computing converge to a unified discipline, sometimes referred to as Computational Science and Engineering. How far away is the future? When will broad adoption start? What does it mean for you? To answer these questions, CIMdata collaborated with Altair to survey business leaders, technologists, researchers, and the global development community for insights into our future smarter, more connected world.

Data Analytics, Manufacturing Operations, & Quality

The ever-changing worlds of manufacturing and data analytics are now converging—and this intersection will soon greatly influence process management and quality engineering. Yet at all levels, quality professionals are grappling with the what and how of integrating data analytics. Altair Data Analytics recently partnered with ASQ to bring you a forward-looking discussion on data analytics, featuring special guests Sony Pauly (Technical Director—Northeast) and Dr. Tom Zougas (VP Worldwide Data Analytics Services) from Altair.
Listen as they discuss the questions and definitions that matter:

  • What does “data analytics in quality and manufacturing” entail?
  • What is smart manufacturing, or Industry 4.0?
  • How will the shift from preventive to predictive impact quality professionals?
  • How does data analytics impact anomaly detection, root cause analysis, predictive maintenance, and warranty analytics?

Bridge the Gap Between Tests and Simulation

An Introductory webinar to EikoTwin DIC by EikoSim, available through the Altair Partner Alliance. EikoTwin DIC allows image processing (digital image correlation) based on the finite element (FE) mesh of your simulation. DIC is an image processing technique that allows users to measure displacements and strains of a structure during mechanical testing. Compared to strain gages and extensometers, DIC drastically increases the amount of information gathered and the ability for the user to understand the mechanical behavior of their structure. But traditional DIC software produce a measurement of displacement and strains of a cloud of points. Thus, users often have a hard time comparing experimental data with simulation results. EikoTwin DIC is simulation-oriented, which means these displacements and strains are directly measured from the images on the FE mesh. As a result, EikoTwin DIC directly compares these deformations to those predicted by numerical simulations. Through a single test, EikoTwin DIC users are able to understand immediately how to improve their simulations, thus avoiding trial and error and wasting time.

Design High-Quality Plastic Components Faster Using S-Life Plastics

An Introductory webinar to S-Life Plastics by PART Engineering, available through the Altair Partner Alliance. S-Life-Plastics is an easy-to-use software that conducts a short-term, long-term and fatigue strength assessment based on FEA results for plastic components made out of unreinforced or reinforced thermoplastic materials. In order to conduct a strength assessment S-Life Plastics only needs the local stress tensor, provided by the appropriate result file of the particular FE solver. Additionally the user has to enter some basic information about the material and loading conditions. With that S-Life Plastics provides the resulting static and cyclic utilization ratios as contour plots. For every individual node a comprehensive numerical report of the most important assessment variables can be requested for documentation purposes.

Smart Product Development

The benefits of launching a smart product line are unquestioned – recurring revenue, data-driven product decisions, post-launch feature updates, new user experiences, and many more – but developing and maintaining a smart product line brings new challenges. Where should you put sensors to collect data? How will you connect to the internet? Is your connection secure? Is the signal strong enough? How do you know your smart product software will work for 10,000 devices? 100,000? 1,000,000? You will need to find technology and expertise to help you overcome these questions and the thousands of others that come in developing a smart product. Traditional product development will only go so far for smart products; instead, smart products need “smart” product development. This “lunch and learn” will explore some of the considerations and expertise needed for smart product development and the technologies that can help.

Improving the Lightweight Design of an Electric Drive System Using Fatigue Analysis

Innovative lightweight design is the key to reducing consumption and pollutant emissions. Especially the paradigm shift currently underway towards more electrification demands new possibilities for saving weight to be explored. Thus the aim of this webinar is to show how a fatigue life analysis can be carried out for a modern electric drive system. Since vibration phenomena play an essential role here, a modal fatigue analysis is carried out. We present all the necessary steps to set up the modal fatigue analysis in FEMFAT channelmax and the fatigue results. The e-drive system will be subjected to an engine run-up simulation. The add-on tool HARMONIC is used for the data preparation.
