To improve competitiveness, Tech-Clarity’s study, (Product Lifecycle Management Beyond Managing CAD), finds companies have shifted focus from market factors like time-to-market or cost to product-centric strategies.

Design tools, especially CAD, are key to executing these product strategies. With the right design tools, companies are better positioned to quickly bring high-performing, high-quality, innovative products to market. Companies looking to upgrade these tools to keep up with competitors may want to consider switching CAD tools.

So what should you do if you find your CAD tool is holding you back? What if your company needs to update CAD tools? Why would you consider a change? What should you expect? Is it worth the time to convert archived data into a new format? Most importantly, do the benefits outweigh potential risks?
