Tooling & Production Profiles Executive Vp of Visibility

By: Thomas Cutler

According to manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, in a recent issue of Tooling & Production, "In the past, engineered solutions required lengthy bid generation process before the fabricator or tooling manufacturer could deliver a strong response to a proposal request. Interaction between engineering and manufacturing was hindered based on the lack of system tools and lack of integration between CAD and ERP systems; this all impacted speed to customer response and generated internal disconnects between engineering and manufacturing. When project-based tooling manufacturers are not configuring from a preset mix of common components, the need for a collaborative environment becomes extremely important to design to the customers specifications."
