The speed of design work
Alongside a disrupted workflow, there is the time-consuming aspect of using various software types. We found that although 45% of people said designing the connection took less than two hours, 33% of people said it took them two to four hours and more worryingly, 11% said it took between four and eight hours, and 10% said it took over eight hours making this is critical concern. Having to carry out various design checks either manually or with different software results in a large effort – very time-consuming.
Another respondent emphasised “we need a design software to speed the design work”.
This is reiterated by our Hilti Product Manager for Technical Ssoftware, Carlos Taborda, who says that the lack of integrated software was holding engineers back.
Carlos said, “This need to use lots of methods to split up the connection means that there is not one reliable source to do the calculations and the change from one source to another affects their productivity”
