Manufacturing companies must make constant changes to meet competitive pressures and take full advantage of market opportunities. Although change involves risk, successful companies use ways to control these risks often using 3D technology.

According to analyst firm Tech-Clarity’s 2013 Study “Best Practices for Factory Adaptability”, top performing manufacturers are nearly two and a half times more likely to use reality capture / laser scanning techniques to aid planning and thereby reduce costs. The ability to capture the current state of a facility and design changes in context can help to reduce the risk of missed due dates and cost overruns.

This webinar covers:

  • How top performers improve planning and reduce costly changes to orders;
  • The myths and truths behind laser scanning;
  • The latest techniques to avoid potential problems earlier in the process.
