Practical Examples of Designing BPM Machines

• On this training day we demonstrate the design process using a typical application specification and design a
motor to meet these requirements

• We will use several software packages in the design example

• The attendees will have the opportunity to use the different software packages themselves and to contribute
suggestions of further design examples for modelling on the day
