Description

Description

In today's rapidly changing technology environment, digital design no longer means just CAD. It's also BIM, IT, analysis/design, and visualization...with a little bit of training, accounting, R&D, and diplomacy thrown in for good measure. One structural engineering firm has decided to recognize this growing overlap of disciplines with a role created specifically to address it: Digital Design Manager. Join Kate for a discussion of what digital design management (DDM) means to Robert Silman Associates, and how having this position in the company has improved communication, collaboration, and adoption of new technologies. A followup roundtable session, CM2155-R Digital Design Management: A Roundtable Discussion offers the opportunity to continue the conversation.
