Engineering Data Management and Document Control

whitePaper | February 20, 2020

Engineering Data Management is all about the creation, version control and fast retrieval of documents. It has little or nothing to do with formal change management, or building a reliable audit trail. Engineering Data Management Systems should make life for the engineer as simple as possible without introducing too much complexity. Document control on the other hand, is the management of documents through their life cycle with a much higher degree of reliability for security, version control, review cycle, visibility, availability and, most importantly, for a controlled and reliable audit trail.

Parametric Modeling Innovates Bridge Design

whitePaper | January 6, 2020

Bridge design is no simple matter. While traditional 3D modeling software is useful for buildings, these structures don’t present the same challenges that bridge design does. Jalpesh Patel, Senior Technical Consultant with Allplan explains why: Buildings are mainly linear, vertical structures with minimal to no obstruction. Bridges, on the other hand, are non-linear, horizontal structures that must weave through obstacles, existing structures, and multiple right-ofway restrictions.

AI Requires Tailored DRAM Solutions

whitePaper | April 6, 2020

For over 30 years, DRAM has continuously adapted to the needs of each new wave of hardware spanning PCs, game consoles, mobile phones and cloud servers. AI/ML may be the biggest challenge yet. Artificial intelligence is the study and application of providing hardware and software that attempt to emulate human intelligence. Therefore, as human beings adapt to different tasks, AI must adapt. Indeed, if AI is to scale to the diversity of human tasks, it will not be via a single, monolithic solution. For every task a human can perform, AI must adapt through a unique combination of hardware and software components.
