Autodesk’s Digital Prototyping for Manufacturing Program A CIMdata Program Review

ANN ARBOR, Michigan, July 7, 2010—CIMdata, the leading global Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) consulting and research firm released a new PLM Program Review entitled “Autodesk’s Digital Prototyping for Manufacturing Program.” This review presents CIMdata’s perspectives on the use of 3D design, analysis, prototyping, and simulation to support manufacturing engineering in the overall product development lifecycle in general and the specific components of Autodesk’s manufacturing program. This paper presents the business case for an accessible manufacturing engineering solution that is integrated with a 3D CAD and simulation environment.

This review provides CIMdata’s perspective on Autodesk’s digital manufacturing program. According to John MacKrell, CIMdata Vice President, “Autodesk’s solution offering in this area is evolving substantially by both expanding existing manufacturing and digital prototyping capabilities and incorporating capabilities from Autodesk’s Architecture, Engineering & Construction Solutions group that directly address factory design.” This is enabling Autodesk to provide more substantial solutions for manufacturing companies. Currently, Autodesk’s capabilities are focused on factory and plant floor layout as opposed to sophisticated factory simulation and other high-end digital manufacturing capabilities. In this paper, CIMdata provides its own reflections as well as describing the experiences of two Autodesk customers whom CIMdata interviewed to gain an understanding of their perceptions of Autodesk’s technologies and program.

Mr. MacKrell concludes that: “While there are opportunities to incorporate additional functionality in the future to expand the capabilities of this suite, the vision of expanding on AutoCAD with Navisworks and the other tools in the suite is very well conceived.” To read more about this important resource, please download and read the complete “Autodesk’s Digital Prototyping for Manufacturing Program” paper. Copies of the “Autodesk’s Digital Prototyping for Manufacturing Program” CIMdata program review are available here at no cost.
