Online and mobile experiences are changing how we buy products. Online, mobile and digital showrooms enable us to choose the product configuration we want that is then manufactured and packaged on demand for us. The advent of low cost sensors and internet based data services changes how we can understand actual product use. In manufacturing, our product design, development and production processes are changing to support consumer customization, on demand production, sensor mediated feedback and delivery. But how do these changes impact our PLM tools? Are the current PLM technologies and processes designed to support these new ways of driving product demand? If not, how do we redesign the product development tools to accommodate them? This session, moderated by Kenneth Wong, Senior Editor, Desktop Engineering,will explore these questions.
Gulfstream as The World Standard(R) in business aviation worked with NVIDIA technology to enable an entirely new remote graphics VDI for manufacturing, service and support users around the globe. This technology allows the business to react quickly to expanding operations and increase in staffing. Leveraging NVIDIA GRID(TM) technology with Citrix XenDesktop, the CATIA 3D Model Based Design data and PLM data are accessible where needed, when needed. This capability protects the company's most valuable IP assets while providing high performance 3D graphics on non-CAD workstations and mobile tablet devices.
