What the Technology Coming to UC Can Do


The software coming to the University of Cincinnati thanks to the PACE in-kind contribution seems like an alphabet soup of inexplicable letters to those outside of the design and engineering fields. To explain what the in-kind contribution means in real-world terms, below is a listing of examples regarding how the technology could be used by students and faculty.

An example of what this software can do is this piece from a UC student: An educational/environmental video on the carbon cycle.

Below is a brief listing of examples regarding how the technology coming to the University of Cincinnati could be used by students and faculty in engineering and design as well as other disciplines like business and medicine.

The above examples only touch on the aspects of product lifecycle and improved education, engineering and design that students will be able to think through using these tools.

The specific product lifecycle stages encompassed by the software and hardware contribution include design inception, manufacturing, marketing, distribution, maintenance and even recycling and disposal. Currently PACE is focused on

Concept development requirements and planning

An example of what this software can do is this excerpt from an educational/environmental video created in a UC classroom.

The PACE partners – General Motors, EDS, Hewlett-Packard, Siemens PLM Software and Sun Microsystems – along with several additional PACE contributors and supporters will provide technology to UC – about 2,000 design and engineering software packages in all. Additional software and hardware in-kind contributions will be ongoing in the future.

The software represents the “gold standard” in terms of product-development applications in leading corporations around the world. Among the specific software to come to the university are
