Last week I blogged about how our team visited Factory_OS (factory off-site):
We wanted to see the convergence of construction and manufacturing for ourselves.
Autodesk and Factory_OS have worked together to tell the Factory_OS story. See for yourself:
At Autodesk, we want to help our customers do more with less to realize the opportunity for better. Factory_OS builds 40% faster and 20% cheaper with an estimated 15% waste (compared to traditional methods) — that sounds better to us in terms of time, cost, and the environment.
By 2050 there will be 10 billion of us. All around the world, the middle class is growing faster than at any time in our history. In 1990, less than a quarter of the world's population earned enough to be classified as middle class. Today, almost half of us do. That's three times as many people whose lives have become better, and that's just the start. 400,000 people are joining the middle class each and every day, and along with this growing population comes a growing demand. This demand includes the need for architects, engineers, and construction workers to imagine, design, and make more buildings. In fact, we'll need to build 3,600 more buildings per day than we're currently building to meet the demands of 2050. Hence, we are glad Factory_OS is forging a better way to do more with less.
Convergence is alive in the lab.
