This course provides hands on experience on how modern technologies improve the product development cycle. Today’s product design and manufacturing companies are faced with increased competition and growing market demands. To ensure the companies and products are successful digital prototyping methods are used to gain an advantage and produce better products.
The course will focus on the different stages of the product development cycle with a consistent workshop projects used throughout. The course starts with the ideation initial phase of development and concludes with producing technical publications of the product for marketing and support. Each segment of the course will contain lectures that illustrate the market demands and relationships of the product development cycle. Company case studies and live demonstrations on how the modern Autodesk applications help companies develop better products will also be used during the lecture sessions.
