By Indrakanti Chakravarthy

As we adapt and learn how to deal with this global pandemic, please know that the Siemens Aerospace and Defense team’s top priority is the health and well-being of our colleagues, customers, partners and the communities in which they live and serve.

Overnight our lives and work environments have been dramatically transformed. Together we will prevail. The Siemens Aerospace and Defense community has the means, resources and determination to assist you and stands ready to support you any way possible, including the introduction of our new virtual A&D seminar series.

Attend a virtual A&D seminar:
Introducing new ACE virtual seminars highlighting user tips, tricks and techniques

Take advantage of this fantastic learning opportunity to learn more about the Siemens solutions you’re already using. In these seminars, Siemens’ tool experts and the user community share best practices, tips, tricks and techniques useful to you from the comforts of your own home.

We’re planning to have two virtual seminars per week. Already, these seminars are quite popular. There’s no limit to the number of seminars you can attend. Some of the ACE seminars already completed include:

“Leveraging product manufacturing information for variational analysis”
“Collaboration using technical data packages in NX”
“Using Teamcenter visualization”

More seminars to come…

What’s an ACE virtual seminar?

  • Attend as many web-based sessions as you wish – at no cost to you.
  • Community: We’ll capture additional and relevant information from our user community and distribute to attendees to enhance user best practices.
  • Excellence: Our experts share practices and insights from the field with targeted and specific content to support you now.

Please note: This is not commercial training, rather these seminars are highly focused user-group shared-knowledge sessions. A learning opportunity for you to come together with like-minded individuals to invest and share knowledge about a specific tool or solution.
