Available from Phoenx PLM , Siemens NX 7 PLM software brings high definition PLM to product development. NX 7 PLM software redefines productivity with a powerful suite of integrated CAD, CAE and CAM solutions.

NX 7 PLM software takes full advantage of the high definition PLM technology framework to improve decision making throughout the product development process.

NX is a next-generation digital product development system that helps companies to transform their product lifecycle. With a broad suite of integrated, fully associative CAD/CAM/CAE applications, NX PLM software touches the full range of development processes in product design, manufacturing and simulation.

As a complete suite of integrated process automation tools, NX PLM software enables companies to capture and reuse product and process knowledge and encourages the use of corporate best practice.

NX CAD enables design for the entire product lifecycle. Manufacturing companies are motivated by increasing pressure to develop innovative products in shorter time frames, while maintaining high levels of quality. Many companies have failed to significantly improve their design processes, even with capable 3D CAD technology, and the benefits of lower costs and shorter cycle times remain elusive.

Transformation of product development starts with the design process. This fuels the entire product lifecycle, from simulation and analysis through tooling design, manufacturing, assembly, service and support.

NX CAE enables simulation to make faster, more informed decisions. Effective use of digital simulation can assist project managers in reducing downstream costs and risks. Often referred to as computer-aided engineering, or CAE, simulation helps engineers to understand, predict, and improve product performance digitally. Design concepts can be thoroughly explored, which reduces direct costs associated with expensive physical prototypes, enabling faster, more informed decisions and resulting in better performing products and higher margins.

NX CAM enables computer aided manufacturing. The primary driving force in manufacturing is shorter product development cycles. Constant innovation and change in designs require faster development of numerical control programs, molds, tools and dies required to manufacture the product. Rapid technology change is increasing the complexity of the tools and processes used in manufacturing.

The NX suite of manufacturing software links design and manufacturing to improve productivity throughout tooling and fixture design and NC machining processes.
