3D render of binary data flowing on to human handAs we closeout one month and welcome another we are taking a moment to look back at the Top 5 Posts that have garnered the most reader interest in October. The articles cover a range of subjects from digital health all the way to product development in the cloud. Read about the latest sustainable innovations in technology and how the power of the platform is transforming the future of industries every day.

The Rise of Digital Therapeutics

Digital therapeutics (DTx) are a form of evidence-based therapeutic intervention that leverage the power of technology to prevent, treat or manage medical conditions. Digital therapeutics are a distinct segment under the broader category of digital health and their unique value is often misunderstood. DTx therapies are delivered through apps and other programs via mobile device and they aim to supplement conditions that are not typically addressed well by traditional healthcare.

Parker-Hannifin is Driving Innovation with Generative Design

Parker-Hannifin is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of motion and control technologies across a wide array of aerospace and industrial markets. The company owns 290 manufacturing plants, and operates in 50 countries with approximately 56,000 employees. Taking into account all of the operational complexity of a business so large in scope, Parker-Hannifin relies on Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform. With the they are able to explore new possibilities in the metal additive manufacturing and they are moving into a generative design methodology driven by the platform.

McDermott is a 125 year-old Houston based company that creates and builds for the oil and gas industry including refineries, offshore platforms, and more. When a company has been in business for so long there are existing legacy systems in place. With those legacy systems there is the tendency to create silos between different teams and the various functional areas of the project. McDermott is leveraging the capabilities of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to better develop and deliver massive project builds. The move of work processes to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows for total transparency and real-time view of the project.

How Will Self Driving Cars Shape The Future of Mobility?

While the benefits of autonomous and electric vehicles can be significant, one of the key challenges facing new developers has been the amount of time it takes for start-ups to move from design to prototype to market. In the competitive electric and autonomous vehicle space, technology and systems that can accelerate the development process will deliver a competitive advantage. Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform, for example, allows for cloud based collaboration between teams as well as virtual product simulations that can often remove the need for physical prototypes, speeding time to market.

Cloud and Crowd: Peak Product Development

As both cloud and crowd have matured, they have provided a tremendous boon to collaborative product development. Cloud is the mechanism by which a globally dispersed ecosystem of partners can communicate and cooperate during an iterative product development process that almost always requires expertise in numerous disciplines—including engineering, manufacturing, electrical and electronics, and supply chain, among others—none of which are optimally housed within the confines of a single product-making organization.
