Poor CAD interoperability may be the largest source of waste in any manufacturing enterprise. From a Lean perspective, imagine the non-value-added work invested in our industry every day fixing CAD models and trying to reuse CAD data in the wrong format. Anyone trying to share or migrate CAD data knows these challenges all too well.
One thing you can do is to help us all better understand the interoperability problem and possible solutions, and focus limited resources on where the biggest problems are and what improvements are needed most.
To this end, please take 7 minutes of your time to help everyone in manufacturing.
Please complete Longview Advisors' fourth annual CAD Interoperability Survey.
The results will be freely distributed to anyone who wants it, to help steer the industry, and make your needs heard.
Thank you for your participation,
