This class will be an overview of how managing production within the Autodesk manufacturing ecosystem lets seamless workflows and real-time insight into production status. We will demonstrate a workflow- starting in design within Autodesk CAD Solutions, moving to programming with Autodesk CAM Solutions, demonstrating production tracking and quality assurance in Fusion 360 Production, and showing how production data can be fed back into design and programming to increase overall production speed and efficiency. These clear communication channels can dramatically reduce the amount of overhead that job shops need to manage by presenting the right information to the right people at the right time. This is the benefit of operating within the Autodesk network.
- Learn how to create digital work instructions in Fusion 360 Production by using the integrations with Autodesk CAM products
- Understand the mapping from setup sheets in CAM to job instructions in Fusion 360 Production
- Learn how to directly access Fusion 360 Production and edit job instructions as necessary
- Learn how to directly access Fusion 360 Production to a real-time update on production status
