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
announced that its new SOLIDWORKS Inspection application is now
available. Unveiled at SOLIDWORKS World 2014 in January, SOLIDWORKS
Inspection completely automates the creation of inspection documents,
which are required by numerous industries.

Meeting international standards is key in today’s global manufacturing
world. Regardless of whether a company does business locally or
globally, it has to submit early design and manufacturing reports such
as a First Article Inspection (FAI) report, inspection report or
ballooned drawing (where dimensions for inspections are drawn in a
balloon or bubble shape). These reports measure the property and
geometry of a product before it is built – and are critical for
organizations facing the stringent requirements and safety regulations
of the transportation & mobility, aerospace & defense, energy, process &
utilities and life sciences industries.
With the SOLIDWORKS Inspection application, companies can quickly re-use
existing design data and content to create highly accurate inspection
reports, such as AS91002 or PPAP forms, helping to accelerate the time
to regulatory approval. The application can be purchased through
network of reseller partners.
“SOLIDWORKS Inspection simplifies the compilation of data while ensuring
accuracy,” said Bertrand Sicot, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes. “It
enables our users to put 100 percent of their focus on the valuable
function of design.”
A recent survey of CAD users found that while many are creating FAIs,
inspection reports, or ballooned drawings, just a small percentage are
using software for their creation. Instead, users are manually entering
data into ballooned engineering drawings and hand-keying inspection
reports into Excel.
Thanks to the SOLIDWORKS Inspection application, users are given
multiple ways to automatically enter values directly into an inspection
report. In addition to reducing the time needed to create the reports,
SOLIDWORKS Inspection also helps eliminate errors and inconsistencies
that come from entering data by hand. Using this application enables
quality inspectors to easily identify problematic parts or manufacturing
processes. By regularly creating inspection reports and conducting
in-process inspections, scrap costs are reduced, product quality is
improved and problematic machines or calibration issues can be detected
SOLIDWORKS Inspection consists of a stand-alone application and a
SOLIDWORKS add-in that enables users to leverage their legacy data,
regardless of whether they are SOLIDWORKS files, PDFs or TIFFs.
The SOLIDWORKS Inspection Professional edition extends SOLIDWORKS
Inspection capabilities by providing users with multiple ways to enter
measured values – manually typing them in, using a digital caliper or
importing CMM results. The dimensions in the drawing are automatically
highlighted in green, red and yellow to instantly provide information on
which dimensions are within the design’s tolerance budget. This helps
ensure parts are within specification for perfect fit and function, as
well as improved quality and reliability.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things.
And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage.
Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
