Ben is a manufacturer who needs to upgrade his company’s design capabilities. Facing market pressure with tight project deadlines and high-volume design workloads, he is looking to improve efficiency and accuracy.

Ben has been researching how to streamline his workflows and increase productivity. He’s especially interested in design automation, model validation and cleanup. He would also like to give his design department enhanced search and reporting capability.

Ben’s company has been using the Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing (PDM) Collection, but he knows from conversations with other manufacturers that his output could be boosted with specialized tools that focus on his unique processes.
