Multi-CAD Design

Challenges of Working in a Multi-CAD Environment

Most companies in your supply chain are using CAD systems for their products. That’s great but here’s the big problem: everyone’s using a different CAD system. Even groups in your own building might be using alternative design software.

With different CAD systems come inefficiencies and redundancies. CAD data needs to be recreated, translation problems arise, and design intent is easily lost.

Learn what other companies and analysts are saying about these challenges in the resources below.
