Using Technology to Streamline Workflows & Improve Communication
In his session titled “Using Technology to Streamline Workflows & Improve Communication,” Jonathan Knowles will discuss how Autodesk customers, like MKM & Associates, are using Autodesk technology to manage multiple building projects through planning, design and construction by replacing manual processes with digital approval processes. MKM & Associates has utilized the DWF platform to eliminate two-to-three day communication delays allowing them to collaborate with team members around the world with more accuracy and speed. The DWF platform has been an important tool in winning competitive bids as they are now able to gather bid information quickly and accurately allowing them to respond faster.

Leveraging Technology in your Everyday Processes to get Products to Market Faster
In the session titled “Leveraging Technology in your Everyday Processes to get Products to Market Faster,” Knowles will discuss how Siemens L&A, the world's leading supplier of logistics and factory automation solutions, is using Autodesk’s DWF platform to speed design times and product time to market. Siemens L&A is using Autodesk collaboration solutions to move from a paper based to electronic review process. In doing so, they have streamlined access to design information to more than 1,700 employees including shop floor personnel, upper management, and external suppliers; drastically reduced the design approval cycles to less than an hour, rather than three days; and decreased manufacturing errors, such as parts being built to the wrong spec level.
