The Future of Making

The future of making is here, bringing with it radical changes in the way things are designed, made, and used. Industries are converging, and they’re innovating quickly. In the future, successful businesses will approach the ideas and practices of design-make-use in a new, dynamic way. The process of creation has evolved beyond a simple linear path into integrated cycles of input and feedback.

Project Spotlight

At Applied Engineering, we take pride in our experiences because each new experience grows our skillset. A recent project led us to work with a manufacturer of casegoods products for the hospitality industry.

The Challenge

The customer came to us because they had pain points that ranged from lack of processes, lack of version control and document management, and different usage of software.

What did we do to help?

Our team spent a couple days with the customer’s team interviewing key people to map out current workflows and identify bottlenecks, challenges, and other issues.

Special Skills

Applied’s knowledge of the capabilities in AutoCAD, Inventor, and Vault Professional helped identify areas and functions that could be improved with the tools they already had.  Our diverse background in Design workflows helped us recognize tasks that could be automated and and/or improved.
