Autodesk Inventor Engineer-to-Order Software Offers New Web Access

Thursday, March 15, 2012 8:30 AM


Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) introduced a new release of AutodeskInventor Engineer-to-Order software that can be deployed over the web, providing access to real-time, 3D visualization and pricing information for customized product configurations. Manufacturers can more accurately predict the actual cost of a completed design, generate more precise proposals and reduce overall lead time for product delivery.

Autodesk Inventor Engineer-to-Order automates the order and bid process right at the point of sale by providing easy-to-use tools for capturing business and engineering rules. The new browser-based access is powered by Autodesk Inventor Engineer-to-Order Server, as well as new templates and modules that can significantly reduce the time it takes to develop and maintain Engineer-to-Order applications. This new capability makes it easier for sales teams to do on-the-fly analysis of one-off custom designs from virtually any location, without having the software locally installed.

Swedish press manufacturer, AP&T, develops and sells hydraulic presses and complete production lines for the manufacturing industry. Using a modular-based system, AP&T can help provide automotive, indoor climate and domestic appliances customers with simple updates for existing equipment or complete customized production solutions. "We see enormous opportunities with Autodesk Inventor Engineer-to-Order as it's helped us speed up product development and reduce time required for routine design and engineering tasks. The cost estimate errors in predicting key components decreased from 10% to just 1%," says Mikael Karlsson, project manager, AP&T "Being able to develop five times faster doesn't seem impossible when we are meeting our targets."

Unlike many other configuration tools, Autodesk Inventor Engineer-to-Order integrates with AutodeskInventor software and AutoCADsoftware — providing a straightforward path to creating and maintaining a single digital model in a multidisciplinary engineering environment.

Streamlining Product Configuration, Optimizing Resources

Using the application, sales teams can help set customer expectations, capture crucial requirements and accurately predict margins — all before a proposal is submitted.
