ENGINEERING THE whitepaper
The pace and degree of digital transformation has accelerated in the past year as businesses were forced to devise newer strategies to ensure business continuity while minimizing the negative impact of the pandemic. Enterprises that had made significant investments in digital technologies were better poised to face the unexpected and rapid changes in business scenarios, whereas those with low digital maturity had to spend a significant part of the early days of the pandemic in transforming their operations to suit the new normal.

External factors such as customer needs and requirements, quality, reduction of production and control costs, environmental impact of products, etc., are pushing enterprises to re-evaluate their business strategies. They are continuously striving to find the right balance of increasing the margins of legacy products and to generate revenue growth through investments made towards digital innovation, new products, and services.

Applying Computer Vision for Storytelling in the Construction Industry

whitePaper | September 27, 2022

A picture is worth a thousand words and is often able to answer the questions of who, what, where and why. Construction sites are often bustling with workers and have lots of activities happening at the same time. A picture of a construction site tells a thousand tales. Analyzing such pictures using computer vision techniques can help tell a story of what’s happening at site, which can help improve efficiency and safety, minimize risk, and monitor project-related progress. Construction companies are always looking for better project monitoring options and computer vision techniques provide more efficient, automated, round-the-clock monitoring.

INTERNET OF THINGS IN CONSTRUCTION

whitePaper | February 27, 2022

The term Internet of Things has become increasingly popular over the last few years, although it has actually existed for a long time, i.e., going back many years. It is probably one of the most talked about technological developments in the construction industry at the moment. But how far away are we from actually using and benefiting from the Internet of Things in construction? How complex is it and what can you do with it? Or perhaps how do you get ready for it if the Internet of Things is to change the industry considerably in the coming years?

Multiphysics Engineering Simulation in the Cloud

whitePaper | December 10, 2021

A multiphysics approach to design is of the essence to fully capture the realworld interactions between the physical phenomena at play inside today’s complex products. This means that to develop the best products need to adopt simulation tools capable of handling structural, thermal, and fluid flow behavior with high-fidelity and in a timely manner. Access to CAE simulation tools in the cloud is therefore critical and can offer a competitive advantage, as it enables engineering teams to quickly assess product performance and accelerate design iterations by leveraging its virtually limitless computational power and collaborative nature. Engineers and designers have traditionally been constrained by legacy desktop CAE tools. Neither the computational power available locally, or its associated cost, scale up or down on-demand. N

An Update on Insolvency in the Australian Construction Industry

whitePaper | August 19, 2022

The construction sector in Australia has long been affected by insolvency and broader liquidity issues. In the last year, construction companies accounted for 26% of businesses that entered into insolvency, and insolvencies in the construction sector more than doubled. This year, contractors have been further squeezed by inflation, supply chain issues and labour market shortages. As the federal government has wound back its COVID-19 economic stimulus packages, further collapses seem inevitable.
