Whether the end product is a building or a motorcycle, the design to make process typically uses a variety of applications and services from multiple vendors,. One of the challenges in managing such a process is moving data between these diverse tools and automating the steps that sometimes involve manual intervention. Traditional file-based point-to-point interoperability solutions have fallen short in addressing these problems because every process is unique and requires a customized solution. The future Forge Workflow Automation API will eliminate these problems by allowing custom workflows to be rapidly built and deployed across any set of software products.
