Implementing a New CAD System in a Large Corporation: Experiences 952119
Ingredients for the successful implementation of a new CAD system are explained. Special considerations for large installations are the primary emphasis.
Selecting the right software and hardware, providing appropriate and timely training, assisting users with one-on-one technical help, continuously monitoring the progress, and promptly addressing all issues and concerns are the keys to implementation. Strong management leadership, competent implementation team, and strategic partnership with the CAD software vendor are vital to the execution of the implementation program and realization of healthy returns on the investment.
Case Corporation has recently implemented Pro/ENGINEER® to impact the product development process. Some experiences from this implementation have been incorporated in the discussions.
