With so many connected “things” and new innovations coming out every day, productsn are no longer only a combination of standard mechanical and electronic content. Additional components such as software, control systems, sensors, and communications modules are increasingly important parts of the product mix. So how do mechanical engineers go about bringing these additional elements into the design workflow?
Modern engineering means rethinking the product design workflow with a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach. Mechanical engineers must adopt new tools, practices and processes because the reliance on traditional design workflows are not going to be adequate in the future of making things.
Digital Engineering surveyed design engineers to understand what kind of progress is underway to transform workflows and modernise existing tool sets. While the majority of organizations have made significant strides advancing their product design processes with simulation driven design, visualisation, and CAM practices, there is still work to be done to promote and make these modern tools and workflows accessible to a wider audience.
