CAM Software and Your Profitability
From Gibbs & Associates
There are times when CNC machine shops must decide whether to replace or upgrade their CAM system. These shops can use traditional selection methods of letting programmers pick their favorite CAM brand or going with their favorite CAM salesman’s recommendation. However, CAM software has grown beyond being a personal productivity tool—it impacts shop profitability on a number of levels. It has the potential to reduce costs far beyond simply reducing part programming time. Gibbs & Associates will cover these and other topics as it and Modern Machine Shop host this webinar on CAM software and profitability.
Reducing the Cost of Innovation Design through Reuse and Adaptation
From Siemens PLM Software
According to a recent Aberdeen Group survey, 46 percent of companies are pursuing the ability to act better to create, capture and re-use product knowledge as a way to increase product revenue while controlling costs. Companies that have taken this approach have realized significant economic benefits and competitive advantage in global markets by improving quality, speeding time-to-market and becoming more cost-competitive. This webinar will discuss and demonstrate how to address the following reuse challenges:
- Ability to find existing data
- Ability to make ad hoc changes to existing data
- Ability to develop and design reusable parts and templates
- Ability to adapt geometry for efficient and seamless use by downstream processes
