What is NX?

NX™, the product development solution from Siemens PLM Software, delivers the advanced performance and leading-edge technologies you need to master complexity and compete globally. Supporting every aspect of product development, from concept design through engineering and manufacturing, NX gives you an integrated toolset that coordinates disciplines, preserves data integrity and design intent, and streamlines the entire process. With the broadest, most powerful and best integrated suite of applications, NX boosts productivity to help you make smarter decisions and deliver better products faster and more efficiently. More than a toolset for computer-aided design, engineering and manufacturing (CAD/CAM/CAE), NX also enables collaboration between designers, engineers and the broader organization through integrated data management, process automation, decision support and other tools that help you refine your development processes.

  • Transform your product development process so you work smarter, not harder, finding new efficiencies to drive innovation and capitalize on market opportunities.
  • Make smarter decisions faster by providing up-to-date product information and analytics to better address engineering, design and manufacturing problems.
  • Develop products “right the first time” by using virtual models and simulation to accurately evaluate product performance and manufacturability, and by continuously validating designs for compliance with industry, company and customer requirements.
  • Collaborate effectively with partners and suppliers with technologies for sharing, communicating and protecting product and manufacturing process information throughout the value chain.
  • Support development from concept through manufacturing, with a comprehensive, integrated toolset that streamlines the entire process with seamless data sharing between designers, product and manufacturing engineers to enable greater innovation.

 


The NX Advantage

Unmatched capabilities No other solution offers a more comprehensive or powerful toolset for product development.

NX delivers:

  • Advanced solutions for conceptual design, 3D modeling and documentation
  • Multidiscipline simulation for structural, motion, thermal, flow, multiphysics and optimization applications
  • Complete part manufacturing solutions for tooling, machining and quality inspection

NX software help you design, simulate and manufacture better products faster by enabling smarter decisions in an integrated product development environment.


Fully integrated product development

NX brings together the tools for every development task in a unified solution. All technical domains work concurrently from the same product model data. The seamless integration enables you to rapidly propagate information and process changes across all development disciplines. NX leverages Teamcenter® software, a collaborative product development management (cPDM) solution from Siemens PLM Software, to establish a single source of product and process knowledge that coordinates all phases of development, standardizes your processes and accelerates decision making.


Superior productivity

NX uses high-performance tools and leading-edge technology to address extremely complex problems. NX design tools easily tackle complex geometry and massive assemblies. The advanced simulation capabilities in NX handle the most demanding CAE challenges, significantly reducing physical prototyping. NX also enables you to improve your manufacturing by taking advantage of the most advanced tooling and machining technologies.


Open environment

The open architecture in NX enables you to protect your existing IT investments by readily incorporating solutions from other vendors in the digital product development process.
