Predictive software tools aid CAD/CAM productivity

Unigraphics Version 16 – the latest upgrade to Unigraphics’ enterprise CAD/CAM/CAE software – marks the introduction of predictive engineering, bringing knowledge of proven engineering practices and product behaviour into the product development environment.

The company reports that predictive engineering has enabled the creation of a new generation of tools – called Process Wizards and Process Assistants – which encode and embed complex product and process knowledge into the software in order to improve design and manufacturing productivity. Various modules introduce predictive engineering into all phases of design.

Unigraphics Version 16 incorporates 12 new modules and hundreds of functional enhancements.

The new version is available for both Unix and Windows.
