Has your design process plateaued?

Engineering and design companies are racing to be first to market with products. In order to meet this goal, engineers and designer are first looking to tools that allow them to accelerate their design development process. The CAD tool, used to create 3D designs, is the first obvious place to look for enhancements. But there are problems, here.

The traditional tools of 3D design rely heavily on design concepts and limitation of hardware from over two decades ago.

Design groups using traditional history-based CAD tools are finding that their design process has plateaued. It is getting harder and harder to squeeze time out of the design development process to make it to the next level. What are design groups to do?

Siemens Rewrites History

Over the years there have only been a few disruptive moments in the design software world.

  1. 2D CAD systems: 1974 mainstream (1957)
  2. Desktop computing using Windows NT: 1993 mainstream for CAD
  3. 3D solid modeling using NURBS: 1989
  4. Parametric modeling: 1987
  5. Synchronous technology: 2008 released inside Solid Edge ST1
  6. Cloud computing: 2000 mainstream 2006 (Amazon), 2008 (Google), 2010 (Microsoft Azure)

Exploring the World of PLM?

In the Upper Midwest, Let McVay Lead the Way

Facing the 19th century wilderness that became the Twin Cities area, settlers often engaged the services of former voyageurs to establish direction, guide them on their journeys, and deal with the unknown. Their modern-day counterparts, stepping into the frontier of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), CAD, and modern manufacturing design and engineering processes like simulation and production, can similarly depend on Ryan McVay.

Geometric Solutions, a Siemens PLM Software partner, has named Ryan the Account Manager as it expands into Minnesota. Ryan says, “You can be confident that I will take the time to understand your business goals and strategies in order to provide you with meaningful solutions.”

With his knowledge and experience, Ryan will set you on the path to success. He understands what works and how to best adapt technology to address your specific needs with software, engineering processes, and change management.

A graduate of Bethel University, St. Paul, Minnesota, Ryan has 23 years’ experience in the field as a system designer, analyst, and administrator; developer of client educational tools; trainer and coach; project manager; and consultant.
