Autodesk to host national Web simulcast

San Rafael, CA—To help engineering design professionals and CAD managers navigate the demands of the rapidly changing manufacturing industry, Autodesk and its resellers are hosting a half-day, Web-based simulcast event, National Solutions, on June 15, 2004.

San Rafael, CA— Engineering design is of extreme importance to all manufacturing engineers for two primary reasons, according to Andrew Anagnost, Autodesk ’s senior director of product management, Manufacturing Solutions Division:

  • The design process accounts for 80% of all costs associated with bringing a product to market.

  • For every one designer there are 10 users of that data, including purchasing and sales.

Because of the underlying importance of the design process to manufacturing as a whole, and to help engineering design professionals and CAD managers be better prepared to navigate the demands of the rapidly changing manufacturing industry, Autodesk and its resellers are hosting a half-day, Web-based simulcast event, National Solutions, on June 15, 2004. The event will allow

  • Learn how to increase day-to-day productivity;

  • Discover key macro-trends that are forcing manufacturers to change the way they design and manufacture products and how these trends are affecting engineers; and

  • Find out how engineers are surviving and thriving in the current marketplace.

The event will feature detailed presentations and demonstrations of Autodesk’s newest solutions for creating, managing, and sharing design data throughout the product development cycle. A question and answer session will follow the presentations featuring the Autodesk manufacturing panel: Buzz Kross, vice president of Manufacturing Solutions Division, Andrew Anagnost, and several product managers.

Another issue to be addressed during the event is the lack of communication between electrical and mechanical engineers. Electrical engineers often see 3-D CAD as a tool for mechanical engineers and often feel overlooked in the design process. Autodesk has released AutoCAD Electrical to help solve this problem and will present a special breakout session during the June 15 simulcast specifically for electrical engineers. This breakout will focus on AutoCAD Electrical, which was built by electrical engineers for electrical engineers. Developed for electrical control designs, AutoCAD Electrical seamlessly integrates with AutoCAD and maintains existing 2-D data and links to 3-D parts and assemblies. AutoCAD Electrical also features built-in data management for version control.
