Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company,
world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product
Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, and Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs
de Metz (ENIM) today announced that ENIM and 15 other universities in
ten countries around the world provide their engineering students with a
unique social innovation and collaborative learning experience, based on
Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
The pioneering “Global Factory” program, now preparing for its third
year, brought together engineering students from a total of 16 different
universities in seven different time zones, some 11 hours apart, by
leveraging the multidisciplinary 3DEXPERIENCE platform from Dassault
Systèmes. All participants use the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and cloud
technology for design authoring, digital manufacturing, scientific
simulation and analysis, as well as collaboration. The outcome of this
program is a rich computer model of a complete automobile factory,
optimized in multiple aspects, including building, floor layout, process
definitions, throughput, robots and machine programs, operator
ergonomics, and complex systems.
Participants in Global Factory
Universidad Nacional de Cuyo (Argentina)
Universidad Nacional de La Matanza (Argentina)
Universidad Catholica de Córdoba (Argentina)
Universidad Nacional de La Plata (Argentina)
Universidade Estadual Paulista Júlio de Mesquita Filho (Brasil)
Universidade Federal do Amazonas (Brasil)
Nanjing University of Technology (China)
Nanjing University of Science & Technology (China)
Universidad de Antioquia (Colombia)
Universidad EAFIT (Colombia)
Khalifa University of Science Technology and Research (United Arab
Technical University Kaiserslautern (Germany)
Instituto Tecnológico de Las Américas (Dominican Republic)
Ecole Nationale d'Ingénieurs de Metz (France)
UNIVERSIAPOLIS Ecole Polytechnique d'Agadir (Morocco)
Universidad ESAN (Peru)
The success of the Global Factory program’s first two years has lead
ENIM and the program’s other participants to plan an expansion of its
disciplinary field in September 2014. Global Factory will become in its
third year “Digital Farm” and will lead agronomy, mechanical, ergonomy,
systems and industrial engineering students to rethink agricultural
equipment in the context of a farming experience.
“Social, cloud-based collaboration was a key reason the Global Factory
program over-achieved its goal,” said Pierre Chevrier, Director, ENIM.
“In a dispersed environment, like ones real life engineers experience
every day, social networking technologies are mandatory for successful
innovation. This is a fundamental competency that every engineer needs
to succeed in today’s multi-cultural business world.”
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s 3DSWYM social application is essential to
the project. Thanks to this social innovation environment, students are
able to share ideas, ask questions, install applications and access
training materials anytime, anywhere. Working together across
international groups with different native languages, across dispersed
time zones, is a challenge to complex innovation projects. Global
Factory provides participants with experiential learning opportunities
to understand and develop this competence.
“Innovation and collaboration are, at their hearts, social activities.
Social collaboration is an essential global engineering practice. ENIM’s
Global Factory program illustrates how our 3DEXPERIENCE platform is
perfectly suited to transfer such competitive practices into a student’s
learning experience,” said Philippe Forestier, Executive Vice President,
Global Affairs, Dassault Systèmes. “This is the future of education and
we are proud to help forward thinking universities, such as ENIM and its
partners, implement it.”

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

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....

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.
In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
