Working with AutomateCAD

We begin by listening.

Too often businesses must adjust to fit a new software tool or industry standard to the detriment of their own unique product, service and business model. Our approach is to create tools that enhance and leverage YOUR expertise. We begin every project with a comprehensive workflow analysis to produce an Opportunity Assessment. This report identifies the key points in your current production where we can have the biggest positive impact to accelerate tasks, reduce errors, ease revisions to to improve the quality of your product and transform your business and your bottom line. This will encompass automating drafting and detailing and go on to the integration of engineering, purchasing, shipping and downstream output fabrication applications.



STEP 1 Opportunity Assessment

We begin with a confidential on-site evaluation of all phases of your existing workflow are summarized in a detailed report outlining key areas, automation strategy, estimated performance improvements, financial benefits and development costs for each phase of work. This valuable report and set of recommendations can be the basis of important management decisions and strategic goal setting. It will also serve as the roadmap for sequencing the implementation of the new workflow techniques and system improvements.

STEP 2 Automation Strategy Plan

Implementation of the recommendations of the Opportunity Assessment will include some or all of the following:

  • Automatic data transformation between Autodesk® and other software (BIM, 3D, etc).
  • Integration of project databases.
  • Simplified or automated engineering analysis of products.
  • Automated estimation, material ordering and parametric detailing.
  • Automated integration with existing financial applications.
  • Manufacturing equipment integration.
  • Construction layout and verification technology integration.

STEP 3 Deliverables

  • Evaluation report
  • Proprietary workflow automation software
  • Automated drafting and modeling tools.
  • System Integrated menu, ribbon or adapted interface to operate new tools.
  • On-site testing • On-site training • Documentation
