One of the important aspects of web development is availability. The platform must be available to the authorized user whenever requested. However, even when all best practices are followed, there are unanticipated events that lead to downtime. During such events you have few common choices:

  1. You find the cause of the downtime and till then let the platform be down. This may take from a few minutes if the problem is easy to solve, to hours if it is complicated, which incur a loss by the business.
  2. You can have redundant resources. This choice would…

Opening a 3D computer-aided design (CAD) model within a web-based service can be more challenging than one could think. This is mainly due to absolute or partial inability of existing online approaches to perform complex computations with appropriate performance.

However, as we don’t want to bring the whole CAD system online and only want to view CAD models, we reduce the complexity of the problem enough to have already existing and working solutions. …

In computer-aided design (CAD), however, this issue is brought to its absolute. CAD software is used on all stages of engineering process: from designing the first drafts to running simulations on the final design and further. …

Modelization of DFM

The definition of design for manufacturability (DFM) goes as follow: “The general engineering practice of designing products in such a way that they are easy to manufacture” [0]. Doing so will invariably improve the return on investment by reducing cost and avoiding problems during the manufacturing process. DFM allows problems to be caught when the cost of error is the smallest (i.e. when the part isn’t being made yet). Even if a part is manufacturable, one should always consider whether it could be manufactured faster and/or cheaper using DFM principles.

For computer…

In the process of acquiring knowledge about how an application can be deployed using different AWS services, one can have a hard time finding articles explaining the complete process. The information is scattered and vague. This article breaches the gap by covering the general deployment process.

In this article, we will launch an instance, assign Elastic IP to it, create a database, request the SSL certificate for a new site under an existing domain, create an Application Load Balancer (ALB) that has HTTP/HTTPS listener and finally create records sets using Route53.

Les contrecoups de la pandémie liée à la COVID-19 se font ressentir dans tous les milieux. Certains, dont on entend parler de façon journalière, doivent s’adapter à une plus forte demande. C’est le cas des services de soins de santé, services gouvernementaux, services de livraison et bien d’autres. D’autres industries, évidemment, sont au ralenti. C’est le cas du secteur manufacturier au Québec.

En début de crise, Manufacturiers et Exportateurs du Québec (MEQ) estimait que 90% des entreprises manufacturières québécoises allaient devoir fermer en raison des directives gouvernementales. Cela représente près de 21 000 entreprises. …
