Autodesk - Solutions by Industry


BIM WheelAs projects become  more complex, firms must manage and share an ever increasing volume of data.  BIM (Building Information Modeling) caters to this need by providing design, visualization, simulation and collaboration to cross-functional teams. Access to project data at any time of its lifecycle, enables the team to make better informed decisions and streamline processes.

Learn more about BIM and what it can do for you.

Build with greater efficiency, quality and profitability.  BIM enables:

  • Quicker project approvals
  • More reliable predictions
  • Better sustainability
  • Increased transparency due to higher levels of collaboration and information-sharing.

Sustainable Design

The demand for innovative and imaginative design in the built environment is fundamental in creating a sustainable future. Sustainable design encapsulates every element of architecture, engineering, manufacturing and construction through increasing the efficiency with which buildings and their sites use energy, water, gas, materials and space. 

Building & Construction

Green Building Studio

The use of BIM in building and infrastructure development is essential and is a powerful tool for reviewing:

  • Materials: durability and visual impact of materials, precise materials estimation to reduce wasted material and required equipment
  • Building efficiencies: energy modeling, insulation, light analysis, heating and cooling systems, ventilation.
  • Landscape & site: green space, erosion control and saving existing environmental elements
  • Water efficiency: irrigation and plumbing
  • Stormwater evaluation to support local habitat.



Sustainable design solutions for manufacturing are enhanced through the use of Digital Prototyping, simulation, and lifecycle management platforms. The power of the tools allow project and design teams to virtually explore a complete product or system at a conceptual stage to maximize output, cost effectiveness and efficiencies.


Digital Prototyping

The power of Digital Prototyping lies in the ability to virtually explore a complete product or system at a conceptual stage to maximize output, cost effectiveness and efficiencies.

The Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping brings together design data from all phases of the development process into a single digital model created with Autodesk® Inventor® software. And that gives you the ability to better design, visualize, and simulate your complete product with less reliance on costly physical prototypes—and minimal disruption to existing workflows.

Conceptual & Visual Design

Create product design concepts and share them with photorealistic interactive visualizations. 

Product Lifecycle Management


 PLM Infographic

Cloud based collaborative Project Lifecycle Management is a key pillar in any project involving multiple stakeholders. Accessing tools, revisions and processes easily allow a project to flow smoothly from beginning to end. Companies of any size can take advantage of PLM to streamline business processes for more efficient product development, manufacturing, and delivery

The Autodesk solution, PLM 360 provides the tools help to design and work more collaboratively. Find out more about PLM 360.
