Siemens has announced an expansion of the Digital Innovation Platform with the introduction of the latest version of NX software, which has further been enhanced with machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities.
These new features can predict next steps and update the user interface to help users more efficiently use software to increase productivity. The ability to automatically adapt the user interface to meet the needs of different types of users across multiple departments can result in higher adoption rates, leading to a higher-quality computer-aided technology (CAx) system and the creation of a more robust digital twin.
The Siemens Digital Innovation Platform is continually expanding to enable customers to create the most comprehensive digital twin of the product, the production environment and of the performance of the product. Integrating ML and AI into NX software offers the benefits of speed, power, efficiency and intelligence through learning, without having to explicitly program these characteristics. This offers many opportunities for customers to enhance design process improvement and ultimately their product offerings and reduced time to market. The NX Command Prediction module is the first introduction of the machine learning-enabled NX adaptive user interface architecture to the market, and will be the basis for, and lead to, additional machine learning-driven UI solutions.
“Although extensive research conducted in the field of human-computer interaction has resulted in an excellent static interface, we still lack the perfectly-tailored dynamic interface that can suit all users,” said Bob Haubrock, Senior Vice President, Product Engineering Software at Siemens PLM Software. “The latest version of NX uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to monitor the actions of the user, and their successes and failures, so now we can dynamically determine how to serve the right NX commands or modify the interface to make the individual user more productive. Leveraging this learned-user interface knowledge for CAx environment personalization can help our customers improve overall usage and adoption rates, ultimately leading to a more efficient product development processes.”
