Virtual simulations of many-layered systems hold promise of taming complexity

Engineering complex systems involves unifying multiple disciplines, which often operate in silos and use a wide range of incompatible tools. Engineering for the Internet of Things (IoT) demands even more interconnections. Virtual prototyping with a model-based systems engineering (MBSE) approach – which uses integrated 3D digital simulations of all systems working together – promises relief. …

MACHINES THAT LEARN: Artificial intelligence may transform manufacturing, but adoption is slow

Manufacturers recognize that artificial intelligence offers an exciting future, enabling greater automation, improved predictive maintenance and a move to mass customization. While adoption so far remains slow, experts agree that the combination of human expertise and industry-wide collaboration will pave the way for success. Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) – defined by San Francisco-based computing …
