FARNBOROUGH, England, July 10, 2012 – At a joint press conference today, NASA Director Doug McCuistion and Siemens Industry CEO Siegfried Russwurm discussed the dawning of a new era of space exploration and the critical roles that NASA engineers and Siemens software technology play in helping to make it possible.
Congratulations to NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory on the Landing of the Curiosity Rover
For the past eight months, the Mars rover Curiosity has been traveling through space in a protective capsule at speeds up to 70,000mph. On August 5th, 2012, it entered Mars’ atmosphere at 13,000mph and slowed to under 2mph, just 21 feet from the surface. As it hovered above the ground, the module carrying Curiosity lowered it on a crane to a gentle landing with no assistance from Earth. There was only one chance to get it right.
PLANO, Texas, June 27, 2012 - Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced the company has been selected as a “Best Diversity Company for 2012” by readers and web
The challenge is to maximize the time-to-market benefits of concurrent engineering while maintaining control of your data and distributing it automatically to the people who need it - when they need it. The way PLM systems cope with this challenge is that master data is held only once in a secure 'vault' where its integrity can be assured and all changes to it monitored, controlled and recorded.
