This class provides an overview of how to use Autodesk Inventor software to automate sales. We will discuss different types of systems and uses such as marketing, sales, and engineering automation. The class will cover standard components that are used for different types of systems such as configurators, guided sales systems, and quoting. Throughout the class, we will present real-world examples and results.
Anyone who is interested in automating and streamlining internal processes that are related to sales
Mark Keenan, Technicon's CEO, brings over 16 years of engineering and management experience to this role. Prior to joining Technicon, he was Director of Strategic Investments for Intel Capital, a position requiring a clear understanding of the interrelation of technology, marketing and financial issues.
At Intel, Mark grew and managed an investment portfolio of over $150MM, closing over 20 venture capital deals while focusing on the manufacturing, telecom and electronics industries. His deep interest in the practical application of manufacturing technologies dates back to his studies at Georgia Tech where he earned a Masters degree in Electrical Engineering.
Do you reuse most or all of your previous designs for every new customer order? Do you want your salespeople and/or your customers to be able to easily configure design orders and be confident that the configurations are valid? If so, join us in this class as we discuss how Autodesk Inventor Engineer-to-Order (ETO) software delivers easy-to-use web and mobile interfaces for configuring products. You will also learn how Inventor ETO enables easy reuse and management of CAD data in the back-end database.
If you are interested in automating the design of a custom product, then this is your class. Automation of the custom design process can dramatically reduce engineering costs, reduce throughput time, improve quality, and improve the consistent use of best practices. In this class, we will use a case study—field-erected cooling towers at EvapTech, Inc.—to review the business value and steps of automating design. We'll talk about the business process analysis, how to plan a project, and how to select appropriate technology. The class will cover how to architect a solution, build a team, and implement and roll out the solution. At each step, we will use the real-world example of the EvapTech cooling towers to illustrate the details. The structural design of these complex towers typically takes 150 to 300 man-hours to complete when it is done with a CAD system alone. We will discuss how EvapTech reduced this time to a matter of hours, reducing the cost of engineering while improving quality and responsiveness to the customer.
