  • The One Question Every Business Leader Must Ask About Industry 4.0

    I like to find out about new things. At 56 I still work in an interesting company, two in fact, and still find technology fascinating. I love looking forward and assessing innovation, getting under the skin of the next ‘big thing.’ After university I went to work in an innovative telecoms company called Mitel. It spent a fortune implementing a forward looking quality improvement program by Crosby (not Bing but Phillip). The program was themed “Quality is Free.” It radically changed their entire business...
  • Engineering, no longer ‘if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it’

    ‘If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.’ It used to be a comforting response in many engineering situations that maintained a functional status quo, but no longer. In some ways it allowed focus on more pressing issues like poor performance, failure, processes that weren’t working or catastrophic failure. You will no doubt have heard of disruptive technologies or disruptive innovation. You should have, it dates back to the mid-nineties. It’s all about using the latest creative and innovative technologies and processes...
  • PLM: "Too late, too late" will be the cry

    “Too late, too late will be the cry when the man with the bargains has passed you by.” From Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels. When the character Bacon delivered this line in the film he was not talking about PLM, but he might well have been. Cutting edge engineering firms of all sizes are getting their teeth into Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things and Big Data. Those that haven’t started implementing their strategy...
  • Engineering’s Great Escape

    In a country where being an engineer used to have negative connotations it’s quite rewarding to see the rise of engineering and the influence it now welds within the entire organisation.

  • Has Industry 4.0 already arrived?

    Remember that tale about the King’s new clothes? For several years industry has been buzzing about the dawn of a new era in manufacturing, a 4th Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0 as we have come to know it. It’ll connect fantastic new devices (that will need to be conceived, designed and developed) from every aspect of life to create a world that’s integrated, awash with data, connected and filled by digitised optimised and automated factories yet customer and consumer centric....
  • 5 Reasons Why Intrinsys Is the Only 3DEXPERIENCE Deployment Partner You Should Consider

    Our relationship with Dassault Systèmes’ stems back to 1998 when our engineering business was recognised as a significant user and was engaged by Dassault Systèmes to become a test site for new software products. Intrinsys have continued this close relationship with Dassault Systèmes and have subsequently been users of V6/3DEXPERIENCE since the initial launch in 2013. At Intrinsys, we like to learn before our customers have to, seeking out and identifying the advantages that new products...
  • Analysis for Engineers: Fluid Validation in 3DEXPERIENCE

    Hard core and pure CFD still remains one of the most complex fields within engineering. Yet, it is incredibly valuable, especially in a world where optimisation is becoming more necessary, not only for cost reduction but to make products even more efficient every day. Fortunately, technological developments in computers have enabled software to perform even better and to have much simpler interfaces for users to perform their tasks.
  • Winning the Cranfield MBA Regatta 2016

    Engineering is a field that can take a person to many places and engage them in several activities. Being such an incredible world, many engineers will often walk away from their computers, where most of their designs and calculations are stored nowadays, and go out to explore and experience the very machines they have designed and worked on from a real-life perspective. If you want a good example, take Adrian Newey, who often drives his own F1 designs.
  • Goodwood Festival Of Speed: 25th June 2016

    Every year, Intrinsys make an active appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. If you are not familiar with the event, this is probably the biggest and most iconic Automotive and Motorsport event on Earth. It plays host to a variety of music artists, movie stars, and the greatest personalities involved in motorsport, including current and former Formula 1 (among other world class categories) pilots and World Champions. The most impressive contemporary and classic car collections can be spotted at a venue where people and cars blend with barely any restrictions at all. You can get as close as you want to most of the cars, and also can witness them properly driven up through the famous Goodwood Hill Climb, blasting through the mountain as the noise of their engines echoes for miles.
