New Survey Reveals Strong Surge of Interest in CAD Data Management

A new survey of CAD users reveals strong interest in both first-time and increased use of PDM (product data management) technology. Only 3D modeling and simulation rate higher as areas of emphasis for short-term spending.

The data comes from Business Advantage (BA), global software and IT research specialist. The results are based on interviews with 635 CAD using firms of all sizes on three continents in manufacturing, AEC, and allied disciplines. It covers 15 primary trends of interest to engineering and construction, including 3D Modeling, Building Information Modeling (BIM), Cloud Based CAD, Simulation, PDM, PLM, 3D Printing, Augmented/Virtual/Reality Computing, and more. The trends are ranked by awareness, importance, current and intended adoption to reveal their trends and growth potential, including comparison to the prior year survey results. Read More

Adept and Engineering Data Management is…

Personal.

In all the years I’ve been with Synergis, I’ve learned that what Adept does for organizations and their people is personal.

Some experience Adept as the product that makes it possible to find and reuse engineering files, and eliminates revision control nightmares.  Or the traffic cop that ensures documents are secure, go through the correct approval process, while maintaining an audit trail.

For many, it’s a foundational part of their product or project lifecycle management solution.  It streamlines design through delivery, and enables collaboration across global sites and partners.  Without it, their business could not grow.
