From Napkin Sketch to Successful Innovative Solution

Posted by Arturo Chinchilla on Oct 5, 2018

Innovation can be difficult.

As engineers focus more on technical excellence ,  they tend to find themselves disconnected from the commercial world or the end-users of their products.

To master innovation, you need the right mix of culture, technology, processes and inspiration —  this takes time and involves a unique team.

Right? - Does this sound familiar?

The picture above is Chevron’s huge Jack/St. Malo platform, a floating steel structure the size of three football fields about 200 miles off the Louisiana coast. Below it are underwater pipelines that carry crude from three oil fields about 15 miles away in different directions from the Jack/St. Malo, like tentacles of an octopus. Unlike old-style platforms that suck oil from a field directly below, this weblike arrangement lets the Jack/St. Malo pump more than 3,000 gallons of crude a minute from the trio of fields.

How CAD In The Cloud Is Changing Engineering

Posted by Blaine LaFleur on Jul 7, 2018

The way we engineer and design things is rapidly changing with the onset of cloud computing. It isn’t necessarily a new technology, rather it has only recently reached a level that can be adopted and utilized on a grander scale. Cloud computing is allowing CAM and CAD to be done on remote supercomputers. This means that engineers and designers no longer have to rely on a powerful machine in their office if they want to run groundbreaking simulations or create intensive designs. Storing much of a CAD software’s computing power off site also allows for better efficiency in data and power management.
