India is a fast growing market for engineering
Engineering product and system design in India is emerging
so fast, it can be estimated India is on the way to become
a one of the world's top three center in product design.
Bangalore city has the lion share in this market.
There are two types of designs happening in India:
1. One is design service for leading MNCs, where India design
centers in the form India based outsourcers or the local
offices of MNCs have displayed enormous growth since economic
2. The other is India based product design companies which
are fast-emerging to address the fast growing local domestic
market for electronic product as well as many other engineering
products for multiple applications.
The inevitable part of product & system design is engineering
design software tools. Without which it is nearly impossible
to design complex product faster. The software tools such
as MATLAB, Simulink, ANSYS, Autocad, Autodesk, ADAMS, Solidworks,
MathCAD proE, Zemax, COMSOL, Mathe Matica, Rhinoceras 3D,
LabVIEW are some of the popular brands for general engineering
design. These tools can enable better design for even for
simple products such as pens to complex systems such as
To design a product to withstand multi-dimensioning parameters,
ordinary paper drawings design is obsolete. Finite element
analysis & such latest mechanical design engineering
analysis can easily be done using powerful software tools.
The virtual product can be visualized & tested in hours
to days (depending on the complexity) on computers, saving
time and money. Much of these tools have drag and drop type
graphic user interface to simplify the design process.
Bangalore is witnessing galore of events by system design
software companies. National Instruments, ANSYS, MathWorks
and cadence have concluded their annual events in Bangalore
in this month of October 2011.
Jeff Kodosky, the founder of the popular software LabVIEW
had come to the National Instruments annual event NI Days
2011. He is impressed and motivated by the design skills
of young Indian engineers. He said to attendees, in the
next 25 years LabVIEW will define and deliver on the vision
of graphical system design to speed the design prototyping
and deployment of all kinds of measurement and control system.
LabVIEW is widely used in Electronic system design. LabVIEW
is highly useful in custom electronic design using FPGAs.
MathWorks, the vendor of MATLAB and Simulink tool has also
concluded its annual event in Bangalore held on 20th Oct
2011. The event was attended by 600 design Engineers from
various branches of engineering. The keynote speaker Vivek
Tyagi, country manager of Freescale Semiconductor India
had said MathWork's Simulink and embedded coder are used
by Freescale's customers for model-based design.
Electronic design tool vendor Cadence had it's annual event
focused on system design, -where the virtual model will
help to do the software design before the physical product
