What a year 2020 has been!!

Virtual Virtual everywhere, not a soul to meet… even Autodesk University was no different this time with a record participation close to 99,000+ worldwide.
Just like the year 2020, The factory environment is constantly in flux, ….

Real production environments are much more complex, and the current process of Factory planning is very manual (…read 2D) and a labour-intensive process which could lead to problems being overlooked and inefficient collaboration. This could in turn have an adverse impact on profitability.

To maintain competitive advantage, more and more Factory Layout planners and designers are trying to find ways to make better decisions during design and making changes to the factory.

This class explores how Autodesk Factory design utilities combined with Infraworks and Revit can help in achieving the desired digital state of a factory facility. This will help integrate all the components like Civil, Architectural, MEP, structural or Manufacturing systems into a multidisciplinary building information model of your facility, accessible to all stakeholders to manage your project on time and on budget. Whether it’s a new building or a retrofit.

Discover a stepwise approach to creating a true digital factory. This course will showcase the journey right from concept to the commissioning of the factory. During this journey we will also cover areas of infrastructure modeling such as land development and building design going into the process layout for manufacturing and finally moving into an interactive digital factory.

Key Learnings

  • Discover the approach for creating a digital factory.
  • Learn how to demonstrate the complete workflow from concept to the commissioning of the factory.
  • Learn how to make informed decisions on the factory floor using a digital mockup.
  • Learn how to capitalize on building data to create a discrete process layout.
