Solutions for Innovative Composites Engineering
Siemens PLM Software cordially invites you to join us for an informative and educational day covering the high performance composite development process.
This seminar will provide an excellent opportunity to highlight competences needed in the design, analysis and manufacturing process simulation of composite materials and how to meet the economic challenges of bringing to market ‘lighter’ and ‘safer’ products.

This free seminar can help you answer questions like:
- How to build powerful processes for global and local simulation and optimization
- How to assure a well understanding of design margin based on tested and model validated material properties
- How to meet the real world needs of development teams by providing them a comprehensive support for ply, laminate, component, and assembly level simulations
- How to predict robustness and help decrease weight thanks to damage tolerance models
- How to guaranty cost and production quality improving manufacturability design
Challenges of composite development in the high performance enterprise:Aircraft, automotive and other industry manufacturers and suppliers need to put in place key initiatives that are driving the development of today's products:
- Optimization for excellence in fuel economy, range, and operation: This requires changes in plane, car, wind turbine design to achieve a lighter weight more efficient products. Composites are a direct enabler of this.
- Higher rate, lower risk production to achieve lower cost: This requires specialized approaches to assure that the designs are manufacturable at cost targets.
- Competitive differentiation through design and quality: More competitors and more kinds of aircraft, car and other industrial products will be entering the market over the next decades.
- Globalized supply chain for structure development: Globalized supply chain and partner relationships are essential for successful program execution
