The existing problem with the implementation of CAD/CAM/CAE was usually focusing just for solving of one concrete problem and the customer, which needed to speed up TPV, chooses based on this CAD system, which made it possible. The system must support the partial task, but the real benefit (the financial as well) is possible just with the deploying of the complex solution, which uniting each island to the logic whole. The new method is about to deploying the electronic product definition (EPD). Classic CAD system become the subset of EPD. The EPD system permit the logically connection of each applications. More and more companies still show interest in EPD. The student will be apprised with the SolidWorks system, FlowSimulation for engineering analysis of CAE (Computed Aided Engineering).
- Student will be apprised with the CAE principle- Computer engineer work support
- Student will obtain basic overview of SolidWorks system options
- Student will be able to do 3D mashing in FlowSimulation system
- Student will be able to do mathematical-physics analysis of engineering problems in choose areas using FlowSimulation
