It does mean more work for the engineer, but in the long run it will actually mean less.  Isn't that just a wonderful statement? :)

 

Actually, when we submit a new design, we have to attach quite a bit of data already for the designs to be reviewed.  Having that data quickly searchable would definitely increase our time at reviewing and designing new product.

Actually, SoCalPE, I think the idea is to get those requests off the engineer's plate and create a standardized service or product to strip it out and automatically input into whatever the target enterprise system is. But yes, the idea of having to standardize the way data is input into the CAD model is likely something engineers and designers will have to pay close attention to. And that could be more work.

I like it.  I can see the real benefit of this capability within an organization.  Many times has an interdepartment request for information from a CAD file found its way to me.  Of course, this will rely on accurate data input and coordination and standards for what data needs to be attached to any given CAD file.  More work for us engineers!
