The Civil Engineering industry faces challenging demands and pressures, yet technology offers creative opportunities and solutions. Smoother collaboration amongst teams and a seamless experience across each stage of the plan, design, build, and operate process is crucial to digital delivery.
Autodesk’s planning and design technology for civil engineers includes Civil 3D, InfraWorks and ReCap Pro. The inclusion of Innovyze water solutions in the Autodesk civil infrastructure portfolio now features InfoDrainage, InfoWorks ICM, InfoWorks W Pro, and InfoWater Pro. Its cloud-based solutions for water asset management and operational analytics includes Info360 Asset, Info360 Insight, and Info360 Plant.
Focused on continuous digital innovation, the technology is designed to enable, empower, and support businesses and organizations within the industry.
“Autodesk aims to provide the best civil infrastructure user experience on the market” says Rob Mansperger, Senior Manager for Experience Design. “Being the best means providing a simple, intuitive, and consistent modern set of capabilities that allows designers and engineers to efficiently plan, design, build and maintain sustainable outcomes.”
HOW CUSTOMER FEEDBACK INFLUENCES DESIGN SOLUTIONS
As a customer-focused company, Autodesk provides customers with various channels and communities to provide their feedback and insights. These valuable feedback opportunities support Autodesk’s ability to prioritize the Civil Infrastructure public product roadmap as well as the water solutions roadmap to support development goals shared with customers.
The Autodesk Research Community invites its members to participate in research opportunities throughout the year, tailored to their experience and expertise. Offering exclusive insight into what Autodesk is reviewing and designing, customers can learn about the development process as it unfolds.
There is a range of flexible activities to suit your preferences from surveys to speaking directly with research and design teams in interviews, usability sessions or continuous review and feedback projects.
