3D CAD Investment:

Senior Management Backing and Alignment to Business Objectives

The importance of CAD Business Objectives

CAD Business Objectives

OK, so clearly 3D CAD Engineering has significant benefits for all aspects of small manufacturing businesses. However in order to make the investment in software and training, it is vital to obtain senior management commitment. Whereas technical benefits are well documented, it is crucial any investment decision is aligned to the objectives of the business. What are the objectives, aims and circumstances of your business that 3D CAD Engineering could make a solid contribution to?  

CAD Business Objectives

Do any of the following small business objectives resonate?

  • Do you aim to slash product development cycle times by a certain percentage?

  • Do you want to launch a number of products on the market by a given date?

  • Do you wish to modernise and professionalise your product development process with the adoption of new technology?

  • Do you aim to offer increasingly customised products with a greater number of variants? Are more complicated high-end products required by your customers?

  • Do you want to dramatically reduce mistakes and waste, moving towards a ‘right first time’ design process?


Try and quantify any of these as much as you can.

3D CAD Engineering can make a direct and significant contribution to all these objectives. Be sure to adopt this technology for strong commercial, as well as technical reasons.
