The Future of Making Things is taking shape in front of our eyes. We see it every day as designers and engineers use new technologies to design, refine products, and bring them to market. Those changes are picking up speed across the manufacturing landscape and they’re disrupting companies that don’t embrace new ways of thinking about product development.On August 13, 2015, at the University Tower - President's Room on the IUPUI Campus in Indianapolis, Indiana, Advanced Solutions will host an opportunity for you to engage in the future through the eyes of the technical experts from Autodesk.
Advanced Solutions is hosting an innovative event series for the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industries in Georgia and Florida.
Advanced Solutions and Kohrs Lonnemann Heil (KLH) Engineers, PSC, have partnered on an internal process improvement through the Advanced Solutions Workflow Simulation service. Advanced Solutions approached KLH Engineers to be a Workflow Simulation partner, just as the KLH team was looking to examine their RFI and submittals process to validate weak points and identify opportunities for improvement.
KLH is constantly looking at ways to automate "busy" work, so their engineers can focus on being engineers. Executive Director of Engineering, Joseph Kohrs, PE, said, "We're not afraid to take chances with the technology." He went on to say, "We don't want to be the guy who waits for the technology to mature before we utilize it. We feel that is a failed response in terms of being innovative and staying ahead of the competition."
Once KLH embarked on the RFI and submittal assessment, Joseph says, "We knew that we were going to save time and money with a change to the process." "What Advanced Solutions was able to give us was a forecast of those potential savings." Advanced Solutions was able to show a decrease of 40% in the average number of submittal and RFI process steps, provide a 48% decrease in administrative overhead, and confirm required workflow changes between the receipt of the RFI and processing by the engineer to meet their targeted turnaround time.
