Mike Campbell, PTC's Executive Vice President of the CAD division sees the world a little differently. Everything is about smart connectivity. At #LiveWorx in Boston, Campbell and PTC President and CEO Jim Heppelmann spoke to a room of 2,300 people about bridging the gap between the physical and digital worlds using the Internet of Things (IoT). Campbell and Heppelmann used a tricked-out, race-winning Santa Cruz bike as a technology demonstration of the IoT to demonstrate how data can be leveraged from a smart, connected product. The bike was outfitted with sensors that were linked to a dashboard, giving a real-time view into the bike’s performance in an on-screen “digital twin” that moved in sync with the physical bike; suspension, wheel rotation, the angle at which the handlebars would turn – everything was displayed on a screen. The bike’s sensors were inexpensive, off-the-shelf components from Amazon and fabricated using a 3D printer, and the idea of using a bike showed how simple everyday items can be transformed with the IoT to become cutting-edge. While sensors and dashboards bridge the physical and digital worlds, Campbell says the concept of the digital twin demonstrates how engineers can think about embedding a digital DNA into product design from the inception. Smart, connected products that leverage sensors, a digital twin and augmented reality enabled companies and engineers to learn how a product is used in the real world across hundreds or thousands of devices. "The bike allows us to clearly communicate technology proof points that can help people understand the broader vision that we have," said Campbell. "We want to give our customers a competitive advantage in the way they create, connect, operate and service their smart products and smart systems."

http://www.ptc.com/product/creo/simulate/ Simulations have to wait for CAD. Analysts must revise analyses continually based on changes to the CAD model, then rerun their calculations. In this way, CAD becomes a bottleneck as well as a separate silo of data. When design engineers need analysts to validate designs, they are not only subjected to the analysts' schedule- it is also difficult to quickly and efficiently address any design issues. With Creo, designers can quickly and easily validate their designs -- without waiting on the analyst.

Depending on the type of load being applied, you may prefer to group these loads separately rather than put them into a single load set. In addition you may want to analyze certain loads but not others. In this example, you are working with a gearbox component. In the Model Tree you can see three loads. As is the case with any fatigue analysis, you need to define a material that has a fatigue criteria set. Right-click Material Assignment1 and select Edit Definition to open the Material Assignment dialog box to see what material is assigned. Click More to open the Material dialog box. Under Materials in Model select the material. In this example select GRAY_CAST_IRON and click OK to open the Material Definition dialog box. In the Fatigue area of this dialog box define a Unified Material Law (UML). In the Material Type box, Other, is added to the list of materials. In the Surface Finish box, the list of finishes is updated. When working with a model from an earlier release, a conversion is required. If this is the case, a warning appears indicating that some of the surface finishes defined in the model are no longer supported. You are prompted to provide the Failure Strength Reduction Factor to take these finishes into account. After the materials are defined and applied click OK to close multiple dialog boxes. The first analysis you need to run is the static analysis. Click Analyses and Studies to open Analyses and Design Studies dialog box. For this example, you can see that the analysis, Gearbox, is completed. Click File ▶ New Fatigue to run a fatigue analysis. In the Fatigue Analysis Definition dialog box there are some changes. The Previous Analysis tab is first, followed by the Load History tab. On the Previous Analysis tab, you can see that the load sets from the model are listed. For this example, select the three load sets and click the Load History tab where you define the Desired Endurance. For this example, Desired Endurance is set to 2e+5. Next, define the load criteria for each load set. In the Load Set box, select the load. Select an Amplitude Type such as Zero-Peak. Complete this operation for each of the load sets in the model. Click OK and then from the Analyses and Design Studies dialog box, run the analysis. After the analysis is completed, you can view the results. In this example you review the fatigue fringe plot for Log Life. In the Results window you can see that most of the model has a Log Life of 20. This means ten to the power of twenty cycles will pass before the crack initiates. You can review the model and see areas that have a lower defined Log Life. To get a better perspective, you can select in the legend and type a value such as 15. This redistributes the levels from first to last so that you can get a better idea of where there are potential issues in the model. This enhancement improves your ability to analyze a model with multiple loads and to determine the life expectancy of your design.
