How does switching CAD solutions impact design organizations?
CAD/CAM Performance ponders the question and looks at CAD Software Performance in a recent Aberdeen Group study involving 412 organizations and how frequently they change their CAD software to improve design performance.
Here are some of the highlights:
- 52 percent of companies have never made a major CAD switch, and believe they can continue to improve year-to-year with their existing tool
- 21 percent of organizations have switched their CAD solution within the past five years. The top five reasons for switching include access to new functionality (48 percent), improved design productivity (44 percent), migration to a 3D application (33 percent), ease of use (31 percent) and software quality (25 percent)
