    Convergence, platform, and industrialized construction—changing business models emerge in the built environment. The industrialized construction revolution is upon us; this is indisputable. The built-environment ecosystem is demanding more certainty in cost, schedule, material availability, and safety.  We’re under pressure from mounting demand, project complexity, global skills, material shortage, and increasing sustainability requirements. This pressure requires change and transformation. Autodesk’s Queen of Prefab Amy Marks, vice president of industrialized construction, will discuss convergence customers’ need for a connected platform. The Autodesk platform connects our customers data using the Autodesk portfolio of products and the digital glue of our partner ecosystem. This empowers companies to productize, inform design and construction, and enable optimization of manufacturing and other technologies—all to reduce digital and physical waste, achieve business outcomes, and drive toward circularity.
