This class will discuss the value of standardization as a channel of innovation for the usage of Inventor software, AutoCAD Electrical software, and Vault software. We will examine the various touchpoints when adopting standards to set up Substation Design Solution software for an organization. We will demonstrate how standardization can lead to innovation and best practices throughout organizations and even industries, and we will show examples of how standardized setup and input has led to more efficient workflows.
