Smart Manufacturing is a hot topic with today’s global manufacturing initiatives’. With CNC machines and tooling becoming more accessible to everyone it is becoming an increasingly competitive landscape. What should companies focus on to stay ahead of the competition? How do you capture your Manufacturing Intent? Where can companies gain more profitability when so many companies have similar machines and tooling? These questions are commonplace in manufacturing facilities today. Through this webinar, we will discuss options that are helping manufacturing companies take advantage of missed productivity and profit. 

Primary Topics: 
• Integrate design and manufacturing and promote concurrent product development 
• Eliminate the need to import and export data between systems 
• Create CNC tool paths directly in SOLIDWORKS with SOLIDWORKS CAM 
• Automate creation of inspection documentation with SOLIDWORKS Inspection
