Nowadays every industry in the world is very much conscious about latest technology. So they are emphasizing on the use of different types of software day by day. Today we can’t think of our industrial life without  these essential software. Now sophisticated industrial works are done by different types of software. It is the demand of time to become efficient on these software. We can’t be an efficient engineer by neglecting software skill. Moreover it is quite impossible to exist in this competitive world without the skill of software. In order to get desired job, software skill is a must. So we should give equal emphasize on learning software besides our academic study.

There are many software one needs to be efficient as an engineer. The most important and demandable software are described below:

CATIA: Catia is the most advanced CAD (Computer Aided Design) software in the world. It has function of shape modeling, sheet metal etc in particular environment. Catia is one of the valuable software designing something specifically. It also includes part design, molding, weldments, assembling and other components like any CAD software.catia Catia has advances to simulate any designed part. Catia owns a disadvantage that is not user friendly. So it is not used generally in industries. Only some renowned Automobile and Aerospace companies use this software.

SolidWorks:  SolidWorks is a strong CAD software. It is the most popular software in 3D modeling. It provides some special tools for 3D modeling.solidworks It has capability to work sheet metal, surface modeling, weldments, mold designing etc in different environments. It also provides opportunity for rendering, animation and simulation for any designed part.

AutoCAD: It is the most popular, user friendly and widely used CAD software from Autodesk.autocad AutoCAD is specially used in 2D designing. But it also includes 3D designing, rendering and further more options.

Autodesk Inventor: Inventor is more advanced level CAD software than AutoCAD from Autodesk especially in 3D designing. It has part designing, routing, sheet metal etc environment.inventor

There are many more CAD software along with the discussed above. As example Pro-E, Autodesk Mechanical, Solid edge etc.

ARENA: JUST THINK, what if you could determine the impact of your business decisions before they were implemented?

Arena simulation software provides the capability to capitalize on business performance.

  • Evaluate potential alternatives to determine the best approach to optimizing performance.
  • Understand system performance based on key metrics such as costs, throughput, cycle times, equipment utilization and resource availability.
  • Reduce risk through rigorous simulation and testing of process changes before committing significant capital or resource expenditures.
  • Determine the impact of uncertainty and variability on system performance.
  • Run “what-if” scenarios to evaluate proposed process changes.
  • Visualize results with 2D and 3D animation.arena

Industries worldwide depend on Arena simulation software to enable business process improvement:

Matlab:  Matlab (Matrix laboratory) can be used to model and simulate complex system before being built for real. It is a fourth generation programming language developed by Math Works. It allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of interfaces and interfacing with programs written in other languages, including C, C++, Java, Fortran and Python.matlab An additional package, Simulink, adds graphical multi-domain simulation and Model-Based Design for dynamic and embedded systems.

Programming: Now-a-days without programming knowledge you cannot be a complete industrial engineer. Without this knowledge you cannot even understand the “Management Information System (MIS)” which is the key of ERP system of an industry. There are many type of programming language. You need to know minimum one very well.programming

Object oriented programming like C++ will be a better choice. Others are C, C#, R, JAVA etc.

MS Office: Nowadays in the modern world all the paper works in office are done by computer. To do office works in computer a managerial software is needed. MS office is the most famous and widely used managerial software. It is more user friendly and efficient than other software of this kind. MS office is actually contains group of software. They are listed below:

  • MS word
  • MS excel
  • MS PowerPoint
  • MS access etc

MS word: It is used for doing various types of paper work such as making report, document and other official file work.

MS excel: It is a data processing software. It is used in offices for making processed data, statistical work etc.

MS PowerPoint: MS PowerPoint software is used for presentation. One can make slide, animation easily to present his work by using PowerPoint.

Data Base Management:  Every industry needs to analysis a huge number of data every single minute  to continue their  product flow or other major works. To work with this huge number of data you have to know minimum one data base management language like MySQL.
