Business Development

I enjoy innovating and creating enterprise data management software solutions for engineering and manufacturing environments. For over three decades I have been actively involved and engaged in the software development/technology space. During this time, I have had the opportunity to design, develop and deliver numerous software solutions via companies I have founded, co-founded and/or operated. My involvement has included software development, consulting, services, marketing, and business development. I have developed extensive experience in the areas of database technologies, product lifecycle management (PLM), enterprise content management (ECM), enterprise application integrations (EAI), and search and discovery applications. Aside from vdR stuff, I enjoy spending time with my family, fast walking and working in my woodshop designing and building Greene and Greene inspired furniture.

Liberating Computer Aided Design (CAD) Data to Drive Product and Process Insights and Visibility

Wednesday | 11:35AM - 12:15PM | Columbia 8

CAD models possess a richness of data reflecting intellectual property, design intent, spatial modeling, analysis and instructions for applications such as engineering, product development, processes/operations and construction. Most anything that is manufactured and/or built today is characterized via CAD models. This session will highlight the insights that can be harvested from CAD models and applied to various search and discovery applications. This includes meta data/properties, manufacturing/quality details (GD&T), structure and bill-of-material (BOMs), where-used, composed-of, relationships across other media, and graphical navigation (P&IDs). Additionally discussed will be 3D visualization techniques and tools.

Attended Takeaway
Search and discovery platforms are the ideal mechanism to liberate CAD data by-passing the need for consuming original CAD authoring seats and visualization tools.

Intended Audience
IT and data management solution practitioners supporting engineering, product development, quality, purchasing, manufacturing and post delivery support and operations.
