February 19, 2019 - Siemens announced an expansion of the Digital Innovation Platform with the introduction of the latest version of NX software, which has been enhanced with machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities. These features can predict next steps and update the user interface to help users more efficiently use software. 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 computer-aided technology (CAx) system and the creation of a digital twin.
Machine learning is increasingly being leveraged in the product design process to provide a competitive advantage. ML can be used to deliver business insights, and it has the power to process, analyze, and learn from large volumes of data. AI and ML can also be used to monitor the actions of the user, and their success and failures, to dynamically determine how to serve up the right NX commands and or modify the interface and leverage learned UI usage knowledge for CAx environment personalization.
The Siemens Digital Innovation Platform is continually expanding to enable customers to create a digital twin of the product, the production environment and of the performance of the product. Integrating ML and AI into NX software will work to offer speed, power, efficiency and intelligence through learning, without having to explicitly program these characteristics. 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.
