Garnering Success with Autodesk® Simulation Portfolio for Manufacturing
Success rarely happens by chance or accident, especially in the workplace. Strong management and leadership is essential to an organization’s success. That means, directing your team to use the right resources, with the right projects, at the right time. With the right pieces in place, you can use simulation to drive improved costs, warranty costs, time to market, and product reliability. But, where and how do you start?   Join us for a free webinar on Thursday, March 9 at 12:30 PM EST and learn insights on different styles and tools to help your team work proactively instead of reacting to problems as you encounter them. You’ll hear from Autodesk® simulation experts, Vince Adams and Ryan Abel who work firsthand with organizations similar to yours while helping them streamline processes to design innovative products on time.    This webinar will cover all domains of simulation including finite element analysis (FEA), computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and digital manufacturing. From strategies on how to help make your design engineers successful to coaching end-users to ensure the reliability of computed information, this is a webinar managers ...

Importance of IoT in Manufacturing: Get There with Fusion Connect
By now, you’ve probably heard of the Internet of Things (IoT). You may even be a bit tired of hearing this buzzword. Like it or not, it’s much more than a buzzword, and it’s changing the way we work from product design to consumer use—and it’s not going away. Let us break it down for you: IoT is a network of devices embedded with sensors and software that connects them to the internet, which connects them to each other, allowing real-time data collection and exchange. What does this mean for the manufacturing industry? And for you as an engineer? For starters, IoT makes data more cohesive and digestible. While data collection is not new, IoT offers a new way of organizing data so you can use it to your advantage without becoming inundated. This leads to an improved customer experience, predictive maintenance, and new service lines to help you design and create better products, as well as additional streams of revenue.  It makes perfect sense for manufacturers to get on board, but how do you get there?  Autodesk® is on the forefront of embracing ...
