Managing Engineering software vs. Business software
This white paper addresses the differences between Engineering and Business software management, the problem, and solutions. Simply speaking, they are two uniquely different problems requiring uniquely different solutions. For the same reason, you wouldn’t us a flat-head screwdriver for a Philips-head screw. Engineering software, called CAD (Computer Aid Design), CAE (Computer Aided Engineering), EDA (Electronic Design Automation), is critical to the Engineering department. Engineering departments typically spend $250,000 per year per 100 Engineers. Best practices tools like LAMUM can reduce this cost by 15-25% per year and allow proper management of these expensive company assets.
