Software to cover all aspects of design, manufacture and disposal

The launch of NX5 and the merger with Siemens will enable a single company to provide software to cover all aspects of product life from design through manufacturing to end of life disposal


Joan Hirsch, vice president of the NX product line told us at a pre-launch event in Barcelona that “If I am doing work cell simulation, I will want to access information such as weld lines from NX models and keep out zones”. While the UGS people present at the event declined to answer any questions relating to the acquisition by Siemens, we began to see something of how the synergy between UGS CAD and Siemens manufacturing software is going to work.

Once the digital mockup has been defined, that geometry will be able to form the basis of all subsequent manufacturing and simulation, including the design, running and re-configuring of manufacturing plant, and also the plant that is going to take products apart for recycling at end of life.

More details about this and other engineering software developments will be found in a special supplement, “Design your Future” to be published with Eureka in the near future.
