Recapitulation of the first 2018 SELECTED Event hosted by SIEMENS
Dr. Filip Deblauwe - who is technical test manager for Siemens PLM EMEA, and responsible for all Siemens PLM test products - explained how both simulation and test methods of operational conditions are implemented while engineering innovative products. The presentation was organized in the following two sections (the flyer can be found at this link).
  • Part 1: Root cause analysis of machine vibrations
  • Part 2: New trends in structural testing
 The participants were involved from the very beginning, and the event was characterized by a very positive dynamic interaction between Dr. Deblauwe and his listeners.
As a conclusion, everybody was delighted by an Apéro buffet offered by Siemens, and had a chance to network and to share thoughts.

The presentation was given on Thursday, the 26th of April, in the Siemens Forum Auditorium in Zurich. The event was the first SELECTED in 2018.

Shutdown of the SSSE's old billing system
The old billing system used by the SSSE was permanently shut down, and it has been replaced by a different solution. As a member who accessed the old system in the past, you may have received an "Your account has been put on hold" message last month. Please, ignore such a message since it is a normal consequence of the mentioned shutdown.

Words of wisdom:

Scott Adams: "Normal people... believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet."
