Metal 3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing process.
Complex shapes, enhanced functional properties and lightweighting are some
of the unique benefits delivered by additive manufacturing (AM). While there is
plenty of information about printing techniques, materials and hardware, a critical
element is rarely mentioned: the need for an integrated software solution for
metal additive manufacturing.
It takes more than a 3D CAD model and a good printer to get a successful print.
Metal AM software handles all preparation and optimization actions that are required
for a printed part to meet the desired CAD model specifications.
This ebook provides an overview of the preparation and optimization process for AM,
explains the importance of software to the profitability of any additive manufacturing
business and suggests what to look for when researching AM software solutions.
The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and the need to rework faulty products.
Watch this webinar to learn how TIBCO’s Smart Manufacturing solutions can help you overcome these challenges. You will also see a demonstration of TIBCO technology in action around improving yield and optimizing processes while also saving costs.
What You Will Learn:
Applying advanced analytics & machine learning / AI techniques to optimize complex manufacturing processes
How multi-variate statistical process control can help to detect deviations from a baseline
How to monitor in real time the OEE and produce a 360 view of your factory
The webinar also highlights customer case studies from our clients who have already successfully implemented process optimization models.

What is the Tech Forecast?
Is innovation the result of inscrutable, opaque genius, or can innovation be treated as an end-to-end process subject to performance optimization by adopting proven systems?”
Gain Insights On:
- Systemizing and sustaining innovation
- Tools, strategies and processes that work
- Creating an enterprise business process for innovation that is redesigned, improved and measured to improve performance
In today’s user-centric world, applications are increasingly at the heart of how your customers experience your products and services. Consistently good application performance is now essential to business success. This is where the quality of application performance enters the picture. Given the
complexities of today’s modern application environments, applications should be tested early, often, and thoroughly in the development cycle using processes and solutions to fit your specific needs. To help your organization meet this objective, this interactive brochure explores an eight-step framework for better application performance. This framework begins with business requirements and culminates in the ongoing optimization of
your application performance. With its expansive application software portfolio, HP covers all of the steps in this framework.
Robots play a major role in making manufacturing processes more efficient and
less labor intensive. They can help control costs and improve quality, as well as
increase productivity. The complexity of robotic system design, however, creates
obstacles for many manufacturers, and this is made more difficult by the need to
identify and integrate subsystems from multiple vendors.
NexCOBOT, a NEXCOM company, offers a flexible, modular robotics solution
integrating artificial intelligence (AI) with machine vision and powered by the
new Intel® Vision Accelerator Design products. The solution brings together
the insight of artificial intelligence, the mobility of robotics, and the capabilities
of machine vision, providing a new level of precision and optimization for
manufacturing and industrial implementations
"With the introduction of Oracle Database In-Memory and servers with the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors Oracle delivers an architecture where analytics are run on live operational databases and not on data subsets in data warehouses. Decision-making is much faster and more accurate because the data is not a stale subset. And for those moving enterprise applications to the cloud, Real-time analytics of the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors are available both in a private cloud on SPARC servers or in Oracle’s Public cloud in the SPARC cloud compute service.
Moving to the Oracle Public Cloud does not compromise the benefits of SPARC solutions. Some examples of utilizing real time data for business decisions include: analysis of supply chain data for order fulfillment and supply optimization, analysis of customer purchase history for real time recommendations to customers using online purchasing systems, etc.

Many sales organizations continue to operate as they have for years: At headquarters, executives work with sales leaders to set revenue targets for the year. Sales teams receive top-down goals, which cascade across product lines, channels and other business dimensions. The end result is an account-level target, which is assigned to a sales rep. Because most companies do not have an easy way to complete this process—nor do they use a common system of record—they must resort to the quickest and easiest mechanism at hand: spreadsheets, a nonscalable, single-dimensional solution that does not handle complete data sets. This approach also poses challenges across key sales management functions, including planning, execution and optimization.
Enterprises tend not to view project management as a holistic process. Much like the disparate systems they have in place, they see a disparate collection of issues.
They typically look to solve specific pain points with single applications. Rather than migrate an entire enterprise to a new system, they are looking to manage a problem spot and have it flow into a specific component (e.g., cost, human capital leverage, or how demand is driven) as needed. In many cases, however, the pain points are symptoms of a larger issue, and to remove them the situation must be viewed in the context of the full project life cycle. Oracle Project Portfolio Management (PPM) Cloud, part of the integrated suite that is Oracle ERP Cloud, not only does this, but it’s also built with the user in mind… solving the PPM pain points through role-based analytics, social collaboration, optimization, costing, control, and mobile solutions for today’s project team.
Automobile and heavy equipment manufacturers are ready to break free of the outdated state of their outbound supply chains. A lack of visibility contributes to a process that is ripe for optimization.
Manufacturers need reliable partners to help establish greater visibility of their supply chains and locate assets in real time.
