Like most business disciplines, project management relies primarily on past performance to predict future results. With Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) a vast amount of data is collected to help evaluate performance. But project managers still lack useful analysis and forward-looking capabilities to predict and ensure project success. Enhancing project management with analytics creates project intelligence, offering the opportunity to shift from a task-based activity to a performance-driven one. More broadly, it allows companies to significantly extend the value of their PLM investment and related data by using analytics to provide actionable insights that improve business performance.
Metal 3D printing introduced a different, new way to fabricate parts. After hundreds of years of metal fabrication limited to cutting and forming operations, the idea of methodically building up raw material into a desired shape was completely foreign to the manufacturing industry. What sorts of parts could a 3D printer produce? Would it make traditional metalworking obsolete? These questions were initially left unanswered due to early printers being extremely expensive and difficult to operate, but more and more applications for metal additive manufacturing have emerged as the process has become more affordable and broadly adopted.
With all of the hype around 3D printing, it can be easy to get lost in fascinating, intricate metal parts made with additive manufacturing. These parts, while impressive, are probably dissimilar from many of the parts you currently produce or use. So why invest in metal additive manufacturing?
In this communication different approaches are illustrated for the design of microwave ﬁlters, diplexers and manifold-coupled multiplexers,using commercially available simulation tools and solvers. An integral part to these workﬂows is the efﬁcient usage of the coupling matrix for the synthesis of coupled-resonator networks.
Current mobile data technology is being pushed to its limit. The Fifth Generation New Radio, commonly known as 5G NR, promises download speeds of gigabits per second, with much lower latency, higher reliability and support for far more connected devices in a given area.
