Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, and Intercim LLC, a market leader in manufacturing and production operations management software solutions for advanced and highly regulated industries, announced that Dassault Systèmes has acquired Intercim for an enterprise value base of $36.5 million.

Product innovation requires production innovation. With the addition of Intercim, DELMIA’s virtual production platform now enables customers to demonstrate what they have built was exactly what they had planned to build, and use this conformity information for certification purposes. Doing so, Dassault Systèmes defines a new step for PLM, delivering digital continuity from engineering to the real factory operations.

Each unit produced is “built right” the first time, in full conformity with the engineering intent, and is certified to operate. This certification aspect of the DELMIA new offering makes it especially relevant for the aerospace and life sciences industries where safety is a major challenge in and beyond the manufacturing process.

John Todd, CEO, Intercim comments: “Engineers are now empowered with real-time visibility into manufacturing operations to ensure their designs are compliant with their organization’s layout and capabilities. Conversely, manufacturing personnel are provided with an opportunity to diagnose problems they encounter and present them to engineering”.

Globalization is a major industry trend. Global production systems require a properly balanced production network combining highly sophisticated manufacturing processes with lower manufacturing cost. DELMIA’s digital modeling, simulation and online execution of global production systems enables the virtual validation of new manufacturing concepts while running production systems at their peak performance.

The combining values of DELMIA and Intercim bring together the factory communities with the manufacturing and product engineers, for an immediate common understanding of the products being built with their potential non-conformance and deviations. This translates for customers into faster turn-around time to correct issues, improved product quality and higher production efficiency.

“We are pleased to see Dassault Systèmes taking this step to extend its PLM product offering to include Manufacturing Execution capability,” said Nancy Bailey, Vice President of Product Systems for Boeing. “As one of our large key suppliers, we anticipate greater company stability in support of the Velocity system used by the 787 program and look forward to additional innovations in this area.”

“This announcement supports Dassault Systèmes’ PLM strategy, by extending DELMIA’s footprint in Digital Manufacturing & Production to reach a large community of new users on the shop floor,” adds Philippe Charlès, CEO, DELMIA, Dassault Systèmes. “Leading aerospace customers like Embraer have chosen DELMIA and Intercim to plan and run their global manufacturing operations and this acquisition demonstrates our continued commitment to this industry.”

Dassault Systèmes’ investment in Intercim, a partner since 2004, follows a June 2008 Memorandum of Understanding to provide the aerospace and defense industry with Intercim's web-based manufacturing operations management solution integrated with Dassault Systèmes' V6 platform, a 2009 minority investment and a 2010 Master Reseller Agreement.

An international team of computing experts from the United States, Switzerland and Singapore has created a breakthrough technique for doubling the efficiency of computer chips simply by trimming away the portions that are rarely used.

"I believe this is the first time someone has taken an integrated circuit and said, 'Let's get rid of the part that we don't need,'" said principal investigator Krishna Palem, the Ken and Audrey Kennedy Professor of Computing at Rice University in Houston, who holds a joint appointment at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore. "What we've shown is that we can boost performance and cut energy use simultaneously if we prune the unnecessary portions of the digital application-specific integrated circuits that are typically used in hearing aids, cameras and other multimedia devices."

Palem, who heads the Rice-NTU Institute for Sustainable and Applied Infodynamics (ISAID), and his collaborators at Switzerland's Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM) are unveiling the new pruning technique this week in Grenoble, France, at DATE11, the premier European conference on the design, automation and testing of microelectronics.

Pruning is the latest example of "inexact hardware," the key approach that ISAID is exploring with CSEM to produce the next generation of energy-stingy microchips.

The probabilistic concept is deceptively simple: Slash power demands on microprocessors by allowing them to make mistakes. By cleverly managing the probability of errors and by limiting which calculations produce errors, the designers have found they can simultaneously cut energy demands and boost performance.

At DATE11, Rice graduate student Avinash Lingamneni will describe "probabilistic pruning," the novel technique the team created for trimming away the least-used portions of integrated circuits. Lingamneni used the method to create prototype chips at CSEM. The test prototypes contain both traditional circuits and pruned circuits that were produced side by side on the same silicon chip.

"Our initial tests indicate that the pruned circuits will be at least two times faster, consume about half the energy and take up about half the space of the traditional circuits," Lingamneni said. He said he hopes that the system performs even better in the final tests, which are still under way.

Christian Enz, who leads the CSEM arm of the collaboration and is a co-author of the DATE study, said, "The cost for these gains is an 8 percent error magnitude, and to put that into context, we know that many perceptive types of tasks found in vision or hearing applications can easily tolerate error magnitudes of up to 10 percent."

Palem said the next hurdle for "pruning" will be to use the technique to create a complete prototype chip for a specific application. Lingamneni said he hopes to start designing just such a chip for a hearing aid this summer.

"Based on what we already know, we believe probabilistic computing can produce application-specific integrated circuits for hearing aids that can run four to five times longer on a set of batteries than current hearing aids," Palem said. "The collaboration between ISAID and CSEM was key to achieving these results."
