Hi there,

This month we have an exciting update to our "Interactive CAD/CAE Timeline" series of articles. In addition, we've also participated in mHUB's 2nd Anniversary Showcase, and kept busy offering a variety of classes. 

And finally, everyone knows that we at Fastway are huge fans of everything automotive related, so keep reading down to the bottom for a really awesome opportunity that was shared with us recently. Vroom Vroom!

Part 3: The History of CAD/CAE Phases

In our third (and final) update to our popular "History of CAD/CAE" Interactive Timeline articles, we've added a third dimension by categorizing each software by the Product Development Phase in which it is most often used. This provides some insight into which companies now have a full "platform" of software that we can use to leverage our design data through it's entire lifecycle. Talk about finally putting all the puzzle pieces together!


Part 1: The History of CAD/CAE Companies

In order to try to wrap our head around the big picture, we decided to create an Interactive Timeline of the History of the CAD/CAE Industry focusing on the Merger and Acquisition activity from the 1960's until now. Using data visualization software, Tableau, we were able to provide a really insightful look into the growth and consolidation of our industry!

Part 2: The History of CAD/CAE Technologies

Last year, we added another dimension to our Interactive Timeline by color coding each software by its underlying technology. It's fascinating to see which technologies led the industry, and which ones are the most popular now. Some people think looking through the past provides some insight into the future. If that's true, then this infogrpahic has some interesting trends!
