Successful Event at Autodesk University 2013 as Autodesk and System Insights Celebrate Partnership


Berkeley, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/16/2013 -- System Insights and Autodesk recently teamed to build solutions to marry 3D spatial modelling with real-time manufacturing data analytics. These capabilities were presented at Autodesk University 2013 recently. Carl White, Senior Director of Manufacturing Engineering Products at Autodesk stated, “By working with System Insights we aim to increase the visibility of manufacturing operations to facilitate flexible, agile and efficient production.”

The solutions will also be able to identify areas where production efficiency and energy usage can be optimized and the traceability of product flows and processes can be improved. The synthesized data views will inform decision-making on production scheduling, plant layout, maintenance and asset health, process planning and tool-path design and evaluations of new capital investments.

Dr. Athulan Vijayaraghavan, Founder & CTO of System Insights, said, “We are very excited in partnering with Autodesk to bring vimana's real-time manufacturing data analytics to Autodesk's range of digital tools for factory design. By bringing the vimana’s proven capabilities in improving manufacturing productivity to Autodesk's products, we will be providing users a comprehensive real-time solution to visualize plant layouts, manage shop floor assets, and optimize complex production flows. These capabilities will increase manufacturing profitability, reduce operating costs, and improve energy efficiency and sustainability.”
