  • 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...
  • Design Validation using CATIA Finite Element Analysis

    CATIA V5 offers highly interactive finite element analysis capabilities for validating design. For individual part design, GPS licences are used and for assembly analysis, GAS. This functionality can be extended using the EST licence which allows users to perform finite element analysis of the composites and comparative study of analysis. All three of these functionalities provide fairly accurate results with linear behaviour of stress strain curve.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Is it Time to Consider Additive Manufacturing?

    Is it time to consider Additive Manufacturing (AM) as part of your Intelligent Engineering systems? 3D printing is a lot more interesting to me now that printing in metal is a reality for traditionally risk averse markets, such as aerospace, as they demonstrate their acceptance of AM produced components. I find myself in an interesting position, …
  • Picking the Pockets of your Larger Engineering Competitors

    Small to medium engineering businesses are finding an increasing number of ways to pick the pockets of their larger competitors under the shadow of Intelligent Engineering.   I love intelligent engineering, it gives an intense focus to a growing number of important initiatives that are real and happening for ambitious engineering companies.  At …
  • Embrace Failure to Find Your Intelligent Engineering Advantage

    Necessity is the mother of all invention In product design it is widely accepted that you learn more through failure. Generally this is because on balance we spend more time on the failing part of a project (the design & development) than we do on the creation element. This is particularly true when you consider innovative and market breakthrough …
  • Proud Winners of NASA's Sky For All Challenge

    Historically Intrinsys and Integral Powertrain are well known in automotive, auto-sport and aerospace. Today their experience and reputation has spread across a broad spectrum of industries and you might not be surprised to also hear their name associated with design and development projects within various industries. But for those of you who like …
