Scott Heide, Founder and CEO of Engineering Intent was a recent guest on Manufacturing Talk Radio podcast hosted by Lew Weiss and Tim Grady. Listen here for the full interview.
Heide explained how a rules-based design/engineering system enables companies to incorporate manufacturing capabilities directly into the design decisions for an engineer-to-order product. He also explored why are CPQ (configure-price-quote) systems are inadequate and how kBridge 3D Visual solution enables fully automated and graphically interactive automation solutions, making it easy for non-experts to configure complex products quickly, easily, and anywhere.
Heide brings more than 30 years of experience in knowledge-based engineering software, He has long been a key source for industry understanding of and application strategies for engineering and sales automation. Heide was recently named to the Forbes Business Council.
Manufacturing Talk Radio has been airing as a podcast since November of 2013, with interviews of industry executives, business thought leaders, respected economists, non-profit directors, elected officials, academic influencers, congressional representatives, and boots-on-the-ground manufacturing innovators to present a complete picture of the industry and the economy. It is one of several podcasts from Jacket Media Co that address the manufacturing industry in more depth and breadth than any mainstream media outlet.
