Siemens PLM Software Tecnomatix Plant Simulation gratuito per studenti

Già disponibile in tutto il mondo, la versione gratuita conferma l'attenzione dell'azienda verso il mondo dell'istruzione, per rispondere alla crescente richiesta di diplomati e laureati con competenze avanzate in ingegneria

Siemens PLM Software ha presentato la versione gratuita per studenti della soluzione Plant Simulation, compresa nel portafoglio Tecnomatix®. L’offerta si inquadra negli investimenti dell'azienda nel mondo accademico. Gli studenti universitari di qualsiasi anno e grado potranno scaricare l'applicativo di digital manufacturing gratuitamente per sviluppare le competenze e le capacità richieste dall'industria manifatturiera di tutto il mondo.

Plant Simulation è un software per la visualizzazione in 3D e la simulazione di eventi discreti. L’edizione per studenti può essere installata su computer con sistema operativo Microsoft Windows® per creare in modo semplice e veloce modelli logistici digitali, utilizzando librerie di oggetti integrati per ottimizzare il flusso dei materiali, l’impiego delle risorse e le attività. Il modello digitale consente agli studenti di effettuare esperimenti e riprodurre scenari ipotetici (what-if), accedendo a un’ampia gamma di strumenti di analisi, modelli statistici e diagrammi per valutare diverse situazioni produttive e prepararsi a prendere decisioni rapide e sicure relativamente alla pianificazione della produzione.

“Di fronte all'attuale crisi dell’industria manifatturiera – dall’invecchiamento della forza lavoro, alla crescente complessità dei prodotti, alla formazione carente – abbiamo scelto di mettere a disposizione di studenti e docenti più risorse e software,” ha dichiarato Bill Boswell, Senior Director of Partner Strategy, Siemens PLM Software. “I nostri clienti hanno bisogno di una nuova generazione di ingegneri che arrivi sul mercato con adeguate competenze di digital manufacturing. Accedendo gratuitamente a Tecnomatix Plant Simulation, gli studenti potranno sviluppare queste competenze per colmare una lacuna formativa estremamente critica.”

La versione di Plant Simulation per studenti non è trasferibile e non può essere utilizzata per scopi

Desigo V5: Innovations from Siemens increase building efficiency
The Siemens Building Technologies Division has introduced version 5 of its Desigo building automation system. Its innovative products such as Total Room Automation as well as efficiency features, like RoomOptiControl and Eco Monitoring, give building operators and users an active role in energy management, leading to permanent reductions in energy and maintenance costs.
A state-of-the-art building automation system is always optimized for energy-efficient operation. However, these optimized settings may start to drift over time. One of the underlying causes is often a lack of transparency for users who simply don't know how the setpoint changes they make can impact energy consumption. This is particularly true for air-conditioned rooms which are also equipped with lighting and sun protection controls. The new version of Desigo keeps room users and building operators apprised of the building's efficiency status. Feedback to users is given using the innovative Green Leaf display, adapted to the expertise and control options of each user group. The system makes it possible to change settings if needed to restore optimal energy efficiency. A study by Technische Universität München (TUM) indicates that by actively involving operators and users in the energy management of a building, energy consumption can be reduced by up to 25% without affecting comfort.
Total Room Automation offers energy savings without reducing comfort
The open, programmable room automation range Desigo Total Room Automation (TRA) is a holistic solution encompassing the HVAC, lighting and shading disciplines. Desigo TRA uses an innovative efficience feature called RoomOptiControl. It automatically detects unnecessary energy consumption in the room and notifies users by changing the color of the Green Leaf icon on the QMX3 room control unit: If room operations are energy efficient, this icon is green. If settings made by a room user lead to unnecessary energy consumption, the icon turns red. To reset room control to energy efficient operation, the user simply presses the display and the Green Leaf icon returns to green.
Using BACnet/IP, PXC3 room automation stations—also part of the TRA package—are integrated seamlessly into the PX automation level with its primary systems (heating generators, HVAC main units and cooling generators). The primary systems are controlled directly through the demand signals from the rooms. This means that the primary systems are only turned on if needed and their operation is adjusted so it meets the room requirements without exceeding them. One room automation station can cover multiple rooms. TRA offers complete integration of KNX, DALI and EnOcean devices; existing or new sensors and actuators from Siemens can be incorporated as well.
Eco Monitoring to reduce energy consumption and wear
Eco Monitoring is another innovative efficiency feature of Desigo. It monitors ongoing operations of HVAC systems based on energy-related quality condition indicators such as readings from temperature, humidity and pressure sensors, runtime, switching behavior and operational performance of the systems. Should deviations from the target state, inefficient operations or increased energy consumption occur, the building operator is notified via the Green Leaf display on the Desigo Insight management station. Current and future international standards (such as EN 15323:2007) require such a feature in order to optimize building operations over the long term.
Desigo Eco Monitoring not only helps optimize energy consumption, it also reduces wear. Thanks to its dynamic behavior and timely reporting, the Eco Monitoring feature recognizes unfavorable system operations early on, allowing operators to intervene immediately before any negative impact occurs. If desired, operators can choose to be notified of unusual events via text messaging (SMS), fax or e-mail.
Expanded networking of the automation level
Starting with version 5, Desigo also offers expanded end-to-end networking of the automation level. Enhanced support for communications standards ensures efficient system integration. The PXC series of compact automation stations has a higher number of universal inputs/outputs, which makes them much more flexible. To protect existing investments, different device generations, such as PTM and TX I/O modules and RXC room controllers, can be used in parallel on the same PX automation station.
