New student-run digital enterprise group manages engineering projects for clubs across Purdue

Purdue.edu

An organization comprised of six students, founded in Purdue Polytechnic’s digital enterprise systems major, is teaching several Purdue engineering clubs how to use product lifecycle management systems (or a PLM).

“ARAS has been really amazing throughout this process,” Travis Fuerst, a professor in engineering technology specializing in digital enterprise systems, said. “ARAS themselves and one of their partners, Razorleaf, have financially supported this group—they actually funded the trip for them to go to Fort Worth and present at their 2024 conference called ACE.”

How PLM Can Improve Supply Chain and Design Synergy and Move Goods Faster

MachineDesign

Interoperability is not a buzzword. There’s a case to be made for integrating 3D CAD/CAM/CAE software to ERP and production planning.

In these challenging times, product value can also be measured, beyond cost and function, by the ability of a manufacturer to quickly make and ship to a customer. With components and labor still not fully able to meet demand in a number of industries, manufacturers need to step up their use of digital automation software tools to achieve what’s now become a critically important synergy between design and production. Improving this synergy will increase agility, reach across domains, and deliver higher performance in creating and making goods more quickly and reliably.

Read Jonathan Scott’s article on the importance of effectively leveraging product data and how this is key to realizing excellence, speed and profitability.

Building a Model-Based Enterprise — and Knowing Why

American Machinist

Too many organizations lack a strategy for shifting from document-centered development, a shift that allows them to build out a digital information thread, and drive more innovative activities and products.

Read Derek Neiding’s, Vice President at the Razorleaf Corporation, article on why there is no question that the model-based enterprise (MBE) is the preferred track for organizations aiming for best-in-class development practices and, ultimately, more innovative products.

The Digital Thread: Building a Foundation for Digital Twins

MachineDesign

Before we talk about digital twins, we need to understand the Industry 4.0 concept that supports them: the digital thread. Systems integrator and consulting firm Razorleaf describes the digital thread as a set of connected records capturing the data and activities that define a product, or in some cases, a process. The first of these—the data—refers to the requirements, models, drawings, specifications, bills of material (BOMs), analyses and product manufacturing information (PMI) used to produce a manufactured good.

Start Now: Profiting From the Digital Twin Can Take Time

Manufacturing.net

The concept of the Digital Twin is still evolving but it is powerful and self-evident enough that most manufacturers believe that they need it. Leading organizations expect that digital twins will help them deliver better products, services, and experiences to their customers, at lower costs than are currently possible. As digital replicas of physical (or cyber-physical) products, digital twins should act as crystal balls allowing engineering teams to understand how their products will behave and respond to real-world use and abuse, long before that information is needed.

What Does Additive Manufacturing Mean To Your PLM strategy?

Manufacturing Net

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a hot topic in the engineering, manufacturing, and product development worlds right now. People are excited about it for many reasons, and there is no doubt that it will be disruptive to the way products are ordered, designed, produced, and distributed. So if you’re beginning to implement, or even just consider AM, what will this mean to your PLM strategy? Will AM just create more files to manage, like the STL file format used to “3D print” the part? Or is there more information that needs to be managed along with a corresponding change in processes? What is the impact to the digital thread? Do we redefine Design for Manufacturing (DFM) because AM “design-driven manufacturing” is breaking so many of the past rules of manufacturing?
