Basic Processes, an exclusive offering by the Siemens US Training team, is designed to give new users an overview of the NX modeling, assemblies, and drafting task-based processes. The real-world experience of the Siemens instructors aids students in transferring knowledge gained through this single course to their job resulting in faster time to productivity.

At the completion of the Basic Processes class, the student will be able to develop basic solid and assembly models as well as drawings using the master model concept. These concepts can be applied in the real world of product development and collaboration. As with each course developed and taught by Siemens Software professionals, this class reinforces our in-depth knowledge of the software's capabilities and instructs the students based on the underlying principles incorporated within the NX product suite. This class was designed to increase the productivity of the student, teaching the necessary skills to accomplish the following:

  • Open and examine NX models
  • Create and modify basic assembly structures
  • Create and edit parametric solid models
  • Modify imported model data
  • Create and modify simple drawings


NOTE: This course may be used to fulfill the prerequisite for several discipline-specific courses (i.e. CAM, CAE, & Drafting)


Manufacturing engineers, NC/CNC programmers, CAE engineers, detailers, and managers who need to manage and use NX.
