There are plenty of disparate computer-aided design (CAD), finite element analysis (FEA), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and printed circuit board (PCB) tools on the market. They can challenge your ability to connect data throughout your product development process.

You have probably found that it has become increasingly important for the correct data to be accessible by the right people at the right time. When everything works according to plan, the resulting increase in effective collaboration can reduce waste, improve efficiency, decrease costs, and help your company maintain a competitive advantage.

If you have worked with Applied Software, you know the company and its staff have demonstrated long-standing success and dedication to partnering with manufacturers. Much of the effectiveness of Applied Software has been in driving innovation and process improvement, primarily through implementing Autodesk technologies.

Early in its 40-plus year history, Applied Software began implementing Product Data Management (PDM) technologies like Autodesk Vault to manage data from work-in-process through released-to-production. Over the decades, Applied Software has expanded its expertise to specialize in Autodesk Fusion Manage Extension, Autodesk Upchain, ProdSmart, Autodesk Fusion and its extensions: Simulation, Generative Design, and Nesting & Fabrication.

As described on the Graitec Group website, Autodesk Specialized Partners are distinguished by their dynamic capacity, capabilities, proven customer success, and service delivery excellence. Specializations differentiate Autodesk partners based on their proven ability to deliver on desired customer outcomes.

In addition to industry experience and successful tenure and track record, Applied Software received the PLM and D&M Specializations because of a continued investment in people, education and technology focused around manufacturing process improvement.

Kevin Howk, Applied Software, Graitec Group Senior Vice-President of Services, explained, “Applied Software helps companies save time and costs through automated workflows that free up resources, increase their capacity to innovate, and focus on value-add responsibilities, with less investment in time and capital.” He added, “These Autodesk Specializations will allow us to further help our manufacturing customers achieve their process/capability maturity and digital transformation goals.”

That’s what the new Applied Software manufacturing specializations can mean to you.
