    Manufacturing companies are under increasing pressure to provide unique products to their customers, while simultaneously improving their overall efficiency. Getting sales and engineering working effectively together to efficiently produce accurate proposals for configurable products can be a challenge at the best of times. The current difficulties with finding and retaining staff, combined with increasing demand for product customization, make it even harder. This session will address the requirements, challenges, lessons learned, best practices, and value obtained from using Inventor models directly in a web-based configure-price-quote (CPQ) solution developed with the Autodesk Forge Design Automation API for Inventor software.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how to structure Inventor models for use by Autodesk Forge.
    • Learn about the external interface and logic that must be developed to use Autodesk Forge effectively.
    • Learn about reference material available from Autodesk to start development of a configurator.
    • Learn about the components required for a complete configuration solution, from quotation to production.
