Dassault Systèmes Opens SOLIDWORKS World 2014 – Design in the Age of Experience

Dassault Systèmes (Paris:DSY) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today opened its 16th Annual SOLIDWORKS World conference at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California (USA). SOLIDWORKS World 2014 continues through Wednesday, January 29, 2014. Beginning today, partners, industry leaders and over 4,500 of the world’s most talented and innovative design and mechanical engineers will share their stories, explore new ideas and become inspired to take their projects to the next level.

In the Age of Experience, the world of design has changed: more social, more conceptual and collaboration is critical. SOLIDWORKS World 2014 will highlight customers who have used SOLIDWORKS design applications to open new horizons for design and business.

Presenters include:

  • Hugh Herr, the head of Biomechatronics Research at MIT’s Media Lab
  • eatART Foundation, an education charity that fosters art research and energy awareness
  • Bo-Dyn Bobsled Project, developer of the 2014 US Olympic bobsled
  • Professors Max Lizarraga and Miranda Jerry of Mt. San Antonio College, where the Certified SolidWorks Associate certification test is the final exam

In addition, SOLIDWORKS World 2014 features presentations from customers who have been using the new SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual application on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform since June 2013. Dassault Systèmes will demonstrate the SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual social design environment that advances conceptual design. With this new application, all stakeholders can quickly capture and develop their ideas digitally and engage their communities to create winning concepts.

Other highlights of SOLIDWORKS World 2014 include:

  • Demonstrations of the recently launched SOLIDWORKS 2014 design portfolio, including 3D CAD, Simulation, Product Data Management, Technical Communication and Electrical Design, that furthers the ability of companies to design without limits
  • Customer stories and products from industries ranging from manufacturing and medical instruments to consumer electronics and renewable energy
  • Sessions showcasing modeling essentials, design automation, productivity applications and other topics designed to help users work faster and be more efficient;
  • More than 200 in-depth technical training sessions, many of them hands on, covering topics such as “Sheet Metal for the Casual User,” “The Art of the Swoopy Part,” and “Electrical 3D – Harnessing;” and
  • The Partner Pavilion, featuring more than 100 hardware and software vendors who work with SOLIDWORKS applications to deliver new business benefits.

“At SOLIDWORKS World we focus on showcasing amazing customers who epitomize the creativity and passion of the SOLIDWORKS community. This year we will also share a new application, Mechanical Conceptual, that will provide our users with the freedom to design the way they want, helping them quickly turn inspiration into reality,” said Bertrand Sicot, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes. “I’m looking forward to showing off SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual and sharing how it has already transformed the conceptual design process.”

Cloud resources, although available in abundance, are inherently volatile. For transactional computing, like ERP and most enterprise software, this is a challenge as transactional integrity and data fidelity is paramount – making it a challenge to create cloud native applications while relying on RDBMS. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Claus Jepsen, Chief Architect and Head of Innovation Labs at Unit4, will explore that in order to create distributed and scalable solutions ensuring high availa...
An increasing number of companies are creating products that combine data with analytical capabilities. Running interactive queries on Big Data requires complex architectures to store and query data effectively, typically involving data streams, an choosing efficient file format/database and multiple independent systems that are tied together through custom-engineered pipelines. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Tomer Levi, a senior software engineer at Intel’s Advanced Analytics ...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level. Security cannot be an after-the-fact afterthought, which is what it's become," stated Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer at Secure Channels, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
