Description

Description

This class covers the challenges and victories of a 100-year-old company that has transitioned from drawing on a drafting board to AutoCAD® software for 2D and 3D CAD, then to AutoCAD® Mechanical design software, and finally to Inventor® 3D CAD software. We describe how the company has adapted its own standards over the years to expedite the release of drawings to manufacturing in a very time-critical environment. Finally, we discuss how the company has decided to take technology by the horns with both 3D prototype/model design and a business enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.
