Aras has announced the latest release of its PLM system, Innovator 12, as it looks to further connect all the physical and digital engineering aspects of modern day product development..

Aras has continued to extend the platform’s modelling engine by adding new low-code capabilities to enable the creation of sophisticated data models composed of content at the paragraph, section and field level, with related items collectively treated as a single entity for the creation and management of documents with impact analysis of changes.

Possibly the biggest change comes to the User Interface (UI), where a simpler experience should enable higher employee engagement and increased employee productivity that should help Innovator work faster.

Boom Supersonic, the company building history’s fastest supersonic passenger airliner featured in our hallowed pages back in 2017, has partnered with Velo3D for the metals additive manufacturing needed for its XB-1 demonstrator aircraft.

The first independently-developed supersonic jet that will prove the key technologies in-flight for safe, efficient travel at Mach 2.2 (1,687mph), the XB-1 combines over 3,700 parts and some of the most advanced technologies including advanced carbon fibre composites, a refined delta wing planform, and an efficient variable-geometry propulsion system.

Boom and Velo3D have already conducted validation trials, which performed ‘accurately and to desired results’, and now Velo3D is developing two titanium flight hardware parts for XB-1 to be installed on the prototype aircraft in early 2020.

Following the news of PTC Windchill being available on Microsoft Azure’s cloud platform, the software company has announced further updates to its software management and systems engineering capabilities.

Windchill now includes built-in linking and tracing between its native product data management capabilities and systems engineering, requirements management, source code management, and testing – capabilities inherent in its current Integrity products, which will be rebranded under Windchill.

The Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) platform is looking to enable full product traceability and provide stakeholders with key insights throughout the product development and manufacturing cycles.

Octans Aircraft is using a swathe of Siemens software for the product development and testing process

Having invested $20 million to modernise its plant a few hours outside São Paulo, Octans Aircraft, a Brazilian manufacturer of small aircraft is getting a further lift from the adoption of solutions from Siemens Digital Industries Software.

The company is producing its first aircraft model, the 300A with capacity for five seats, which will undergo the certification process - and Octans plans to achieve positive results by reducing the time and cost of the processes through the implementation of its new software.

It’s fair to say the company has invested fully in Siemens’ product catalogue - based fully on the objective of facilitating the control and traceability processes of the project.

Airbus Defence and Space will be using Ansys SCADE tools to help develop future UAVs

Just days after Ansys hooked up with BMW to simulate autonomous vehicle technologies, it’s back at it with aerospace giants Airbus for enabling safety-critical flight controls with sophisticated Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Aiming at autonomous flight by 2030, the partnership with Airbus Defence and Space will build on an existing project where Ansys software is being used to develop an advanced Unmanned Aerial Vehicle that will be engineered for speed, safety and affordability.

The partnership between Airbus and Ansys will engineer an advanced Ansys SCADE tool that links traditional model-based software development with new AI-based development flow, which is described as ‘pivotal’ for driving the development, certification and embedding of the drone flight control software, accelerating its speed to market by significantly reducing development time and associated expenses.

PTC’s strategic alliance with Microsoft has ramped up a notch by delivering its Windchill Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution on Microsoft Azure.

Through the new software-as-a-service offering of Windchill on Azure, users will be able to ‘accelerate their evolution’ from basic product data management to enterprise PLM, given what PTC calls a “simplified deployment and upgrade process”.

PLM functionality is configured through an open architecture which promises to reduce deployment costs and times, as well as lower total cost of ownership.
