Brushing with Wasabi and a Simulation Driven Design Debate on Tech4PD

Share

The consequence phase begins! See which analyst brushes his teeth with wasabi paste! And make sure to watch the full second episode of Tech4PD on enabling Simulation Driven Design. Remember, Chad and I are doing this because we want to share some very important topics about PLM, engineering, and product development software – but don’t think we have to take ourselves too seriously in the process. Looks like I am suffering for my love of PLM!

For those that watched the first episode of Tech4PD on Granularity versus Integration: PLM Suite Solutions versus Best in Class, you know that Chad and I took differing opinions. The voting was close. The loser (bet you can guess by the picture) had 49.3% of the vote and defiantly brushed his teeth with wasabi using a Transformers Electric Toothbrush (clearly representing the power of integration). And yes, it was videotaped and added to the second episode for your enjoyment.

Now, the second debate begins. What’s at stake this time? The loser has to go to their next industry conference or big business meeting wearing a Star Trek uniform. According to the Engineering.com website, that includes “vulcan ears and all” which I don’t think I agreed with. But thankfully I am feeling really good about my position on this debate.

Don’t let this happen again, vote for Chad!
