What are you trying to accomplish? Do you know what PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) is about?


SAN RAFAEL, Calif., March 15, 2005— From designing motion control equipment to intricate conveyor systems, Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) today made it easier and faster for manufacturers to turn their ideas into real products. With the immediate availability of Autodesk’s newest design and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, manufacturers can better create, manage and share design information, to compete and win. Autodesk’s solutions, unlike any on the market today, are easy to deploy and use, help companies add 3D design at their own pace and help them leverage their design data throughout the manufacturing process. With these latest solutions, Autodesk is the first and only company to offer Functional Design, a new concept in product development, which makes it easier to design in 3D and enables engineers to design more intuitively, avoid “over-engineering” and improve product quality.


A Comprehensive Portfolio of Manufacturing Solutions

Delivering on its strategy to help customers create, manage and share their digital design data and solve critical business challenges, Autodesk offers the most comprehensive portfolio of integrated 2D and 3D design and PLM software available – helping customers design better quality products, accelerate time to market and achieve maximum project visibility and collaboration. The new products, solutions and enhancements include Autodesk Inventor® Series 10, Autodesk Inventor® Professional 10, AutoCAD® Mechanical 2006, AutoCAD® Electrical 2006, Autodesk® Vault 4 (integrated into all Autodesk manufacturing design products), Autodesk Productstream™ 4, Autodesk Streamline® 7 and Autodesk DWF™.


“The latest release of Autodesk Inventor is going to transform day-to-day design tasks and improve workflows drastically,” said Cory McConnell, a mechanical designer with Mechanix Design Solutions, a consulting firm that specializes in Electro Mechanical, Hydraulic, Materials Handling and Machine Design. “New features within Autodesk Vault will be the tipping point we needed to gain additional productivity through improved data management.”


A Practical Approach to PLM

To extend the value of design data, Autodesk also announced the latest release of its data management solution, comprised of Autodesk Vault (integrated into all Autodesk manufacturing design products), Autodesk Productstream, Autodesk Streamline and Autodesk DWF. This solution solidifies Autodesk’s role as a player in the PLM market and enables manufacturers to drive design re-use, release design data to manufacturing in an efficient and timely manner and achieve maximum project visibility with suppliers and customers.


“With this comprehensive solution, our customers can address their most pressing business requirements. The new Functional Design capabilities within Autodesk Inventor software give 2D users a dramatically more intuitive way to design in 3D so they can accelerate product development cycles,” said Robert Kross, vice president of Autodesk’s manufacturing division. “Our solution also provides them with a practical approach to deploy PLM in order to manage their design information and automate processes for greatly improved cross-functional productivity.”

The company I worked for until June 2011 used ProductStream that was customized and worked as a PLM. We had AutoCAD Mechanical and Inventor integrated into the system which worked well being that everything was from Autodesk.
