Autodesk Inventor is a great tool for students and faculty for engineering areas that don't require great precision or development of more thorough scientific results. Is you are conducting research, or deal with very intricate and complex systems I would recommend a more robust platform that complies more to industry standards.

Clients can increment productivity by distinguishing special open doors to re-use fabricating resources. This will help undertakings' general usefulness across the whole organization. Ensuring that your endeavor is using their designing resources is vital to effectively working their assembling cycle. Two things ring a bell; the greater part of the default screens are "swarmed," and it requires an investment to comprehend the blunder messages once you commit an error utilizing the capability.

Pros

Autodesk

  • The program is very good at simplicity. Each of the buttons, menus, and options has an explanation of exactly what the feature does, and even a more advanced description if you desire to learn more about what each one does.
  • Autodesk Inventor is a very fast program. Everything renders extremely quickly and there are no delays when examining a 3D model, part, or assembly. This is especially useful when giving a presentation about a product or design, and you need to be able to show a concept to an audience in real time.
  • The software has an extremely accurate simulation feature that lets users do stress analysis on a 3D model. It can calculate precisely where the stress concentrations are going to be in a particular model and even give you an accurate depiction of where the part could likely fracture and/or fracture during loading.

Cons

Autodesk

  • Inventor demonstrates a lack of fluidity in the process of transferring data between programs.
  • Inventor shows some lack of sophistication that certain features that are readily available in other design software packages are limited in use in Inventor.
  • Inventor can often have difficulty in creating models that show true color, as in blacks can come out as dark grays in certain renders, even when the material and appearance settings are the same from part to part.

Siemens AG

  • roles definition and authorization can be made more user friendly
  • process schedule definition requires more of IT skills than an actual use case, there can be dashboards to define such processes and it can be automated effectively
  • organization of workflows can be handled better and there should be automated reminders for tasks within the workflow
  • the user interface is pretty outdated, still menu based and has lot of scope for improvement

    Inventor continues to meet our enterprise needs. I don't see a need to change unless we change our business model significantly.

    Because of our current customer needs, we will most likely maintain use of Siemens PLM products for some time. Aside from the initial software cost, we pay for yearly maintenance. Maintaining our yearly maintenance licensing with Siemens, we receive access to all of the latest software releases, as well as premier technical support

    Usability

    Autodesk

    It’s easy and very good for mechanical design

    Siemens AG

    As previously mentioned, due to the intense amount of features and modules present in the software, the usability of the software suffers greatly. Many of the features are not used in our context, and many of the modules are not purchased, but the options are still present on the interface leading to a lot of clutter, much of which is never used. The interfaces suffer from a lack of design and tend to feel like a conglomerate of Windows 98 elements.

    I'm giving the overall support rating a 5 only because I rarely have to use it. Trying to find the answer on the help pages hardly ever helps me because any problem I have is usually too deep for what the help offers. Given the popularity of Autodesk, I have always been able to find an answer online after doing enough looking!

    Alternatives Considered

    Autodesk

    AutoCAD and Inventor are both made by Autodesk. We use AutoCAD for all of our electrical design work as well as our pneumatic design work. AutoCAD and Inventor can really compliment each other. Information can be shared between the two programs. It would be hard to do what we do without either of these software packages

    I felt that Teamcenter fulfilled the needs of most business better than the Windchill PTC and SAP PLM. When comparing the quality of ongoing product support, Teamcenter was the preferred choice in my opinion. For feature updates and roadmaps, I prefer Teamcenter over SAP PLM. Compared to Windchill and SAP PLM, Teamcenter is more easy to use. It's easier to setup and start Designing. Also, when it comes to product performance, Teamcenter usage shows a much exponential growth.

    It's a very robust and mature tool. The only thing that would make it better is the have a version embrace the cloud, which I'm sure is underway, but it's complicated, so it will take more time. But when it's done, look out. It will be near-perfect!

    Return on Investment

    Autodesk

    • iLogic has enabled rapid design changes and model automation that save us time and money
    • Cross-platform compatibility with other Autodesk products (e.g., CFD) keeps us in a single ecosystem with a single software vendor.
    • Included data management tools save us from chasing files or components around and prevent data loss.

    • There is a somewhat moderate but safe ROI, the use of this software helps save a lot of time for our engineers and designers when visualizing and managing CAD; which has allowed us to meet our clients and deliver our work on time.
