From Drafter to Innovator: The Evolution of the Design Engineer

🏢 Organizations: PTC, Ansys, American Axle


The seeds of modern design were sown in 1765 by Gaspard Monge. The French mathematician is widely credited as the founder of descriptive geometry and technical drawing.

Simulation-led design (SLD) is advancing innovation by empowering designers with the ability to explore many more design options without adding time or cost. SLD not only reduces costs but optimizes product performance and advances innovation by allowing designers to digitally explore substantially more product design iterations by asking “what if?” and getting the answers quickly. Furthermore, as these designs have been more thoroughly validated against the requirements, failures in the field are reduced, which of course reduces product recalls and warranty costs.

For remediation for Apache Log4j 2 CVE-2021-44228 and CVE 2021-45046, PTC recommends removing the JNDILookup.class as described in the remediation from Apache. Throughout PTC’s testing to date (December 10 to December 15, 2021) there have been no adverse impacts from using this method. PTC has not used this dynamic loading capability in our products, and the remediation should be both effective to the vulnerability and very low risk to our products. Any risk of this change is limited in scope to the logging subsystem of applications, and any resulting errors are far less significant than the exposure of this vulnerability. Customers can preemptively remediate the vulnerability while awaiting official certification to reduce their immediate exposure to this critical issue.
