You can have highly capable teams, the latest technology and limitless resources, but if your processes are not optimized, you are leaving money on the table. The AEC industry faces severe challenges, with productivity issues topping the list. A study by the National Research Council (NRC) cites "improved efficiency through more effective interfacing of people, processes, materials, equipment and information" as a key area that is ripe for change and improvement. During this class, learn how industrial engineering methods traditionally applied towards manufacturing environments are being used to improve efficiency, eliminate waste, increase profit and improve competitive advantage for AEC firm workflows.
You have your million-dollar idea, now it's time to get the funding to make it a reality. But where do you start? Which route is the best one to take? Do you use crowdfunding to get your business off the ground? Do you join a hardware accelerator? What about angel investors and venture capital funding? With so many options, it's hard to make the right choice. In this session we'll hear experts discuss when to take each approach and how to successfully get started with each approach.
Years ago there were only 2 ways to become productive with Autodesk, Inc., software—you could go to a training class or hire a trainer to teach you. With cuts in companies' traditional training budgets, major corporations are shifting training resources away from costly, traditional, instructor-led training and choosing cost-effective solutions. We are in the middle of a significant shift in instructional methods and delivery vehicles. This round-table session will review the broad spectrum of training options that are available, from traditional books and instructor-led classroom training to flipped classrooms using interactive eBooks, web-based synchronous and asynchronous videos, discussion forums, and even social media. If you are an innovator, a corporate training manager, a trainer, an industry consultant, or simply an Autodesk product user, join us in discussing trends, directions, and successes, as well as the challenges of maintaining your competitive edge with diverse Learning and Training Solutions.
How can you act like an entrepreneur within the bureaucracy of a large firm? How can you develop new product or service lines—just as a startup would—when surrounded by politics and organizational inertia? This class takes an organizational-change approach to the development and introduction of new corporate strategies and product lines, with a focus on those that have sustainability benefits. We will give participants the opportunity to work on real-world cases.
Learn how quick and easy it is to start programming on iOS for Apple Inc.'s iPhone, iPad, and iPod. This class will show you how to create from scratch a simple iOS application with traditional user interface elements like buttons, tabs, and lists. You will then learn how to deploy this app on an iPad and see it running. Finally, you will discover how to debug and test an iOS application. During these demonstrations you will learn where you need to go and what you need to do to start programming in iOS. You will also discover how you can use GLKit to draw 3D graphics and how to access REST web services from your iOS device.
Many CAD and Building Information Modeling (BIM) managers have little to no direct managerial authority over the staffers they support, yet they're still expected to get results. To make things worse, many times these managers are also engineers, architects, or designers working under severe time constraints while expected to remain billable. This discussion will focus on strategies for peer-to-peer interaction with users and project managers that can help you persuade people to comply with key CAD/BIM management directives like standards, file storage, training, and interdepartmental coordination. If you fit the peer-to-peer CAD/BIM-manager profile you're sure to pick up some solid ideas you can use immediately. And even if you do have full managerial authority, you can still benefit from using some of these collaborative and persuasive strategies. This class is designed for managers of multiple disciplines.
This session will celebrate the work of customers and thought leaders who are reshaping their businesses and, in the process, reshaping society by rethinking how they plan, design, and build, and by considering what the impact is of what they do now and in the future. Hear what they have started to explore (new approaches, technologies, and business practices) to consider the real possibilities for your businesses. This is a breakout to the Infrastructure Symposium on Monday.
This course starts with the assumption that many CAD / Building Information Modeling (BIM) managers have little to no direct managerial authority over the staffers they support, yet they're still expected to get results. To make things worse, many times these managers are also engineers, architects, or designers working under severe time constraints while expected to remain billable. This course will present strategies for peer-to-peer interaction with users and project managers that can help you persuade people to comply with key CAD/BIM management directives such as standards, file storage, training, and interdepartmental coordination. If you fit the peer-to-peer CAD/BIM manager profile, you're sure to pick up some solid ideas you can use immediately. And even if you do have full managerial authority, you can still benefit from using some of these collaborative and persuasive strategies. This class is designed for managers of numerous disciplines.
Wouldn't it be great if we could go to a workstation, pull a proverbial trigger to uninstall everything we don't need anymore, and then pull another trigger to install everything we need now? We can't do that unless we find a way to 'weaponize' our software deployments. This class will share a company's experiences managing Autodesk, Inc., products and keeping its computers and users from 'blowing up.' Without using any special install tools (like Group Policy, for example), you will explore the techniques this company uses to reduce the steps and amount of time needed to install the applications as suites or individual products. In addition, this class will cover a way to reduce the time and effort needed to uninstall previous releases with little effort, including the extras. There are many techniques in use today and this class intends to add more weapons to the arsenal.
