Intraoperability outside of product design & mfg

July 15th, 2009 by Bill Abramson

I have had a recent discussion with someone who was describing their very seious intraoperability issues.  Areas such as flight test and field support experience major problems in accessing product definitions in a form that they can use.  Applications used by engineering and manufacturing … among others … do not provide the critical functions these other areas require forcing them to use other non-compatible applications.

What do you think?

  1. Might have a look at what we do too. Much more than a viewer – full 3D! While not solving the interoperability/translation issue entirely by embedding the ENTIRE 3D CAD application and object within MS Office – GUI and ALL – files are saved as an excel or word file and shared with many. Our application is file agnostic as a result and can impor/export many, many formats not only CAD but gaming and graphic modeling. Certainly there is always something “lost in translation” but the ability to share and collaborate with many at every stage of the design workflow – even remotly IS now possible. Our huge file compression allows collaboration easily to any desktop with MS Office.
    Imagine the application as part of MS, Outlook email, IE, Win Explorer (P to P, opening any CAD files found on the client with a simple click of the mouse with out the need for translation or thought by the user). Or we embed our application as a ride along with a third party to enhance the larger OEM functionality. With MS Office going to the cloud soon we see this kind of a small but powerful plug in approach both timely and elegant – extending 3D collaboration to millions. Server-side “live” version to follow shortly also.

    datakit has devoted ressources to cad interoperability for more than a decade now.

    datakit 3D CAD components have been adopted by many software publishers world while amongst which a flight training simulator software publisher.
