Use a fish to catch a fish

Use a fish to catch a fish

July 20th, 2007 / Posted by Maria Sarkar

A company in the mid west made some basic assumptions

The assumptions

They have 4 engineers

They have SolidWorks

They have DriveWorksXpress

They could afford to free up one engineer for 1 ½ hours per week.

For every 4 minutes that one engineer spent with DriveWorksXpress, he could save each engineer (including himself) 1 minute per week by the next week.

Any saving they made in time would be re-invested in using DriveWorksXpress

If they freed up one guy for a week, he would be trained on DriveWorksEngineer

They would put this plan into action.

The Result

After 5 weeks they were saving enough time in design to send one engineer for a week long DriveWorksEngineer training course WITHOUT AFFECTING PRODUCTION

Here’s the math
