Digital engineering fuses the art of design with the science of data. Integrating data technology with traditional engineering practices enables highly efficient manufacturing and seamless product innovation. In addition, applying a strong data foundation to engineering techniques promotes consistency of high quality product standards.

CIRTES

Originally in the mid-1980s, Claude Barlier conducted research in Nancy on the Actarus machining monitoring process and on the Additive Manufacturing process (rapid prototyping, 3D printing) Stratoconception, on which he filed the first patents. In November 1991, in order to develop his patented research, Claude Barlier created CIRTES in Saint-Die-des-Vosges.

How can we design better for Buildability?

Article | July 28, 2021

The use of highly sophisticated building models – as a result of BIM – has transformed how we design the built environment. However, although the digital models used by architects and engineers during design enable impressive visualization and documentation of the designer’s intent, the data and considerations required to construct it are often considered separately. We typically use the design model to communicate the final state of the project – not how it is constructed, even though such considerations result in a more accurate estimate on both project time and cost. Of course, different flavors of BIM tools exist that do consider such topics during manufacturing and construction, but how often do we truly consider the impact of the construction process as part of making the right initial design decisions?

Going from hot and cold testing of engines to a robust end-of-line testing system for electrified vehicles

Article | July 28, 2021

The current trend of electrification in the automotive industry challenges not only the development teams, but also the production lines and quality testing. While the ICE (internal combustion engine) production rely on the well-established hot and cold testing of engines applying vibration and sound measurements; assembly of electrified vehicles requires new advanced end-of-line (EoL) testing methods and standards.

Celebrate World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development

Article | July 28, 2021

The World Federation of Engineering Organisations WFEO proposed 4th March as World Engineering Day, as an opportunity to celebrate the important contributions of engineers and engineering to sustainable development and modern life. Organisations and offices of the United Nations, governments, civil society, the public and private sectors, schools, universities, and society, are expected to make the international day a springboard for awareness-raising actions.

Celebrating Women in Construction – Engineering Equality

Article | July 28, 2021

For over a century, International Women’s Day has been celebrated every year on 8th March. The first IWD gathering in 1911 was supported by over a million people and it has grown year on year, applauding the social, economic and political achievements of women and marking a continuing call to action for accelerating gender equality. This year’s theme is Each for Equal, highlighting the message that an equal world is an enabled world. One area of focus within this theme is creating inclusive workplaces where women can thrive. Nowhere is this drive more important than within the construction industry.
