Autodesk Unveils Cloud Services For Manufacturers
Announces availability of Autodesk 2013 software portfolio for manufacturers.
Autodesk, Inc. has unveiled its new 3D design and engineering software portfolio for manufacturers, offering a complete set of integrated and interoperable suites and cloud services to simplify design, visualisation and simulation workflows from product development through delivery.
The new Autodesk design suites are geared especially for manufacturers and include Autodesk Product Design Suite and Autodesk Factory Design Suite. The new suites provide a broad range of cloud services to help manufacturers more efficiently design, build and deliver better products faster and at reduced costs. The new Autodesk Simulation family of products delivers a faster, more accurate and flexible approach to predicting, optimising and validating designs earlier in the design process.
“Autodesk’s 2013 portfolio provides our customers with a faster path to ROI for product development and delivery,” said Robert “Buzz” Kross, senior vice president, Design, Lifecycle and Simulation at Autodesk. “Our 2013 suites and scalable cloud services help manufacturers improve productivity and minimise upfront investment.”
Autodesk suites provide comprehensive workflows to connect desktops to mobile devices and to the cloud. These workflows enable manufacturing customers to develop complete definitions of product designs; integrate electrical and mechanical design to increase productivity; predict product performance; and visualise designs or complete factory layouts in 3D.
Autodesk’s 2013 design suites integrate with Autodesk 360 cloud offerings to better enable collaboration. Cloud-based assets promote design sharing and reuse. The suites also offer interoperability with the new 2013 version of Autodesk Vault product data management software and the company’s next generation, cloud-based alternative Autodesk PLM 360. Autodesk Vault software enables workgroups to organise, manage and track their engineering CAD data, manufacturing bills-of-material and change processes from a centralised location.
Delivering a comprehensive software solution, the Autodesk Product Design Suite enables design, visualisation and simulation capabilities, helping to drive innovation with integrated, discipline-specific tools and workflows built for Digital Prototyping.
New for Autodesk Product Design Suite 2013 are the addition of one-click workflows created to help customers seamlessly move through the engineering design process, advanced cloud-based services for simulation and the inclusion of additional software allowing customers to realise their end-to-end design process.
“The Autodesk 2013 portfolio is aimed at helping our customers’ world over – both large and small – to drive better cost control and greater competitiveness in the Manufacturing industry, which is an important contributor to the GDP growth.” said Rajiv Bajaj, Head, Manufacturing, Autodesk India & SAARC. “FY13 product range are also available on Autodesk 360 (formerly known as Autodesk Cloud) that will offer better accessibility and simplify the process of visualisation and simulation”, he added.

The agreement will help UK address a key challenge in supply that vaccine makers are likely to face — shortage of vials to rapidly 'fill and finish' tens of thousands of vaccine doses.
Even if the industry bites the bullet and agrees to go full throttle on defence manufacturing, the lack of transparency from the government corridor will hardly instil confidence in the private sector.
