The world of manufacturing is evolving rapidly. New challenges facing manufacturers require the adoption of a next generation approach to design, engineering and manufacturing.

Competitive pressure is increasing, driven by the needs of more demanding customers. Companies must rethink their approach to innovation and transform the way they do business.

On October 19th, KETIV and Autodesk are teaming up to discuss the future of making things in the manufacturing industry. Amar Hanspal, Autodesk Senior Vice President of Products, will share his perspective on the trends redefining customer expectations for time to market, responsiveness, and collaboration so you can plan and execute accordingly.

Register for this event below.

The Future of Making Things

He’ll discuss the key factors influencing the change, such as:

  • Generative Design – Create highly optimized designs that meet predetermined goals and constraints.
  • Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) – Creating physical objects by depositing materials in layers, based on a digital model.
  • Internet of Things – Connected devices enable communication that provides opportunities for new functionality, capabilities, higher product utilization, and overall better customer experience.

Why Does All This Matter to You and Your Business?

As your industry faces a range of disruptive changes, your ability to win profitable bids while keeping operations running smoothly is more important than ever.

The era of connectivity and exponential advancements in technology are impacting the manufacturing industry more than most. The ability to stay connected with what’s next in manufacturing is crucial to stay competitive and attract more customers.

In other words, if you’re not making efforts to stay ahead, you’ll fall behind.

Hanspal and the Autodesk team will discuss how Fusion Lifecycle brings it all together and acts like a missing puzzle piece. Fusion Lifecycle brings order to the constantly evolving and uncertain world of manufacturing by improving product development processes. Specifically, the team will reveal how to avoid costly launch delays with new product introduction (NPI) tools, share accurate BOM information with Bill of Materials Management, take control of change management, and stay connected to your global supply chain.

This is a great – and rare – opportunity to hear about what lies ahead from the man responsible for heading up development of Autodesk products both past and future.

Location: Bowers Museum 2002 N Main St., Santa Ana, CA 92706
