Call for Papers - 6th ANSYS ASEAN User Conference

The 6th ANSYS ASEAN User Conference will be held in Singapore in Nov 2006.

CAD-IT Consultants (Asia) Pte Ltd is pleased to invite you to submit an abstract to be presented during our 6th   ANSYS ASEAN user conference. This conference will offer a valuable opportunity for users of any of ANSYS suite of simulation solutions including (but not limited to) Multiphyics, Mechanical,  Structural, Professional, DesignSpace, DesignModeler, DesignXplorer, Emag, CFX, LS-DYNA,  ICEM CFD, DesignSpace, TASPCB, PDT, Autodyn, ASAS, AQWA etc to exchange knowledge/experiences and network with industry experts from all engineering disciplines.

For many years, the ANSYS ASEAN User Conference has attracted numerous engineering managers, engineers, ANSYS experts and users from a variety of industries. With the growing pervasiveness of high performing computing and the increasing use of ANSYS simulation solutions in more and more industries, the relevance and importance of this conference amongst the engineering community has increased significantly over the years. 

By submitting a paper, you have an opportunity to lead discussions in examining techniques, applications and strategies in your area of expertise.  We are looking for papers that highlight the role of ANSYS in a specific industry or research aspect. Any case studies or successful projects that result in design breakthroughs, innovation, better productivity, higher quality, shorter lead times and/or cost savings would be particularly interesting.  

We are also interested in papers which furnished intuitive, intelligent solutions to engineering problems in all engineering disciplines that impact innovation and bring it to greater heights and beyond.

Deadline for abstract submission is on the 30th June 2006. 

Deadline for full paper submission is not later than 1st Sep 2006.

For any queries, feel free to contact:

ANSYS Completes Acquisition of Fluent

With the acquisition of Fluent, ANSYS has significantly broadened its offerings in the simulation market. I expect ANSYS to be an important partner to design engineers in industries, from discrete manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals, food processing, as well as to environmental scientists studying how pollution propagates and oceanographers trying to predict the effects of global warming. Ships, airplanes, cars, your PC, home, office building and the environment -- all will work better, be more efficient, pollute less or be better managed as a result of a better understanding of the dynamics of the gases and liquids in which, and with which, they operate," commented Daratech CEO Charles M. Foundyller.

Knowledge enabled FMEA from Goldfire Innovator 3.0

The need for effective FMEA deliverables is increasing due to the challenges of more complex product requirements and more demanding operational environments.  Yet, the availability of subject matter experts with deep corporate memory and broad scientific experience is rarely adequate, and decreasing rapidly as the work-force ages.  It is into this demanding set of circumstances that Goldfire Innovator delivers value by fulfilling the two most critical steps in the FMEA process.  First, its Function Model provides and objective and prioritized inventory of the components and functions, and of their relationships and behavioral parameters.  This becomes the basis for determining an FMEA’s scope.  Second, the semantic access to contextually relevant concepts provides comprehensive yet precise insights into how and why functions fail, the effects that those failures can exhibit, and the strategies used to avoid and mitigate the failures’ risks.  No longer are these critical processes limited to the personal experience of those engineers assigned to the task.

Through the integration of unique semantic concept retrieval technology with proven problem-solving methodologies and proprietary content, Goldfire Innovator helps companies perform FMEA tasks faster and far more thoroughly.  Organizations benefit from reduced time and personnel costs.  Additional savings are realized in terms of more effective risk management.  And higher quality products and delivered sooner to the market thereby increasing top line revenue and market positioning.
