How Data Management Services Streamline the Design Process

If you’ve ever been part of implementing a design and engineering software solution, you have learned that things are rarely “plug-and-play.” There are many different ways to configure these applications, and one single mistake could have a big impact on your team’s productivity.

Recently one of our clients built a new manufacturing facility and contacted our team for assistance. Even though the plant was built from the ground up for speed and efficiency, the client was continuing to use software and processes from their old environment. As a result, they were experiencing delays and bottlenecks.

Our experts stepped in to help this client revamp the design process, update the data management workflow, facilitate collaboration among teams, and implement a more efficient structure to streamline production.

We relieved the bottlenecks with the implementation of a data management software solution that was configured to achieve the client’s business objectives and address the specific conditions of the new facility.

A data management solution is essential in facilitating the design process. Hagerman adds value to this process by:

  • Allowing multiple team members to work on a design simultaneously.

  • Preventing version control issues.

  • Allowing multiple stakeholders to access or review a design concurrently.

  • Automating data transfer from CAD files to other file formats.

  • Enabling designers to quickly search for data in existing files.

  • Preventing accountability issues that arise from team members making changes to design files.

  • Allowing team members to copy and reuse data from previous designs in new projects.

  • Streamlining and automating the change order process to avoid errors and improve efficiency.

A data management service can help structure a solution to accommodate your current budget and set it up for future growth.

  • You want to achieve an economy of scale and further increase ROI by employing a solution that’s flexible enough so it can be used in multiple departments. Experienced consultants can assess your company’s IT infrastructure and configure the software to help improve efficiency and reduce cost.
