Modern CAE Environment for the Electronics Industry Webinar

In the electronics industry, customer expectations and fierce competition require ever faster product introductions. One of the ways electronics companies are shortening product development cycles is through the use of simulation. Traditional, disconnected CAE tools and processes, however, pose a challenge to analyzing increasing product complexity and developing products faster than the competition. This presentation will introduce how a modern simulation environment designed to help electronics manufacturers can analyze performance earlier, manage ever greater amounts of simulation data and bring products to market faster.

This presentation introduces NX CAE from Siemens PLM Software as a modern simulation environment. Electronics manufacturers worldwide are discovering and using NX CAE to create better designs and produce better products more quickly than ever before. By leveraging design data directly through integrated modeling and meshing tools, electronics companies can drive analysis earlier in the development cycle, integrate multi-disciplinary solutions into a single environment, and perform whole system analysis. In short, NX CAE helps users streamline simulation processes to help users evaluate the right data at the right time to make the right decisions. Attendees of this presentation will learn how to run simulation processes at speeds up to 100 times faster than the manual processes found in traditional CAE tools. They will also learn how to conduct earlier/faster analysis iterations, analyze more complex phenomena, and model/simulate larger products or systems. Discover how NX CAE's modern environment can shorten your product development cycles.
