SIEMENS AND AUTODESK OVERCOME INCOMPATABILITIES IN CAD SOFTWARE

Working with Computer Aided Design (CAD) can be tricky: many companies work in environments where multiple CAD software solutions exist, and sharing data between these programs isn’t always easy.

Even if a company uses a single piece of software internally, there is no guarantee that other companies along the supply chain are using the same software.

When the time comes to move a design from one stage to the next, file and data incompatibilities can slow down the design process, costing companies time and money.

In fact, interoperability between CAD software has become a critical issue in the design and engineering industries, and the creators of this software have begun to take note.

Siemens and Autodesk have entered into an interoperability agreement, promising to take steps to ensure that the programs sold by each company are able to share data in a streamlined and efficient manner.

“Interoperability is a major challenge for customers across the manufacturing industry, and Autodesk has been working diligently to create an increasingly open environment throughout our technology platforms,” said Lisa Campbell, vice president of Manufacturing Strategy and Marketing at Autodesk. “We understand that our customers use a mix of products in their workflow and providing them with the flexibility they need to get their jobs done is our top priority.”

If successful, this project will mean that designers worldwide could be relieved of numerous headaches and frustrations. Speed of design will go up, and cost will go down.
