New Study Reveals How to Reduce Engineering Costs With Better Collaboration

BOSTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jan 13, 2011 -- In a newly released report, Working with Multi-CAD? Overcome the Engineering Collaboration Bottleneck, Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), finds that with improvements to multi-CAD environments, top companies release 90% of their designs on time, and with higher quality, while reducing development costs by 31% and development time by 32%. As companies prepare for an economic recovery, but likely have fewer resources, they must find ways to work smarter. Getting the most out of existing CAD data is one of the ways they can accomplish that.

"A shocking 82% of survey respondents report using three or more CAD formats in their design process," explains Michelle Boucher, research analyst for Aberdeen's Product Innovation and Engineering Practice. "This means that with today's shortened development schedules, it is important that companies can reuse work someone else did in a different CAD tool. When done well, this saves time because engineers do not need to waste time recreating work someone else has already done."

The study describes the capabilities needed to achieve these time savings by overcoming the challenges of working with multi-CAD data.
