Speaker Bio

Andy is a software architect at Autodesk. His main focus is getting Inventor technology into Forge. He has worked for Autodesk for 10 years all on the Inventor team and is helping drive our existing desktop technology into the cloud.

SD324561 - What to Automate: Assessing Automation Projects with Examples With Forge and Design Automation, our customers have more options than ever to automate their workflows. The big question is knowing which are the best opportunities for automation. This class will define the characteristics to look for, and what types of tools and tasks lend themselves to automation. It will show how to asses project total cost of ownership and ROI when choosing projects. It will describe how to ensure that projects are aligned with company initiatives and strategy. It will show how to reduce time to production by integrating with operations technology systems, and how to prepare production documentation. We will discuss how to improve process quality in order to minimize errors and let companies respond more quickly to order or production changes. And we’ll also provide some customer examples where Design Automation for Inventor software and other Forge services have been used to deliver competitive advantage, improve responsiveness and flexibility, and accelerate and improve processes. 60 Minutes Industry Talk Loren Welch

SD323621 - Inventor on Forge With Design Automation for Inventor software being released around Autodesk University and DevCon, there’s a great opportunity to gather our Inventor customers who want to automate on Forge. This will be a chance for customers and partners to share what they’re trying to automate and see how this aligns with Design Automation. 60 minutes Community Meetup Andrew Akenson
SD323084 - Getting Started with Design Automation for Inventor on Forge At Autodesk, we realize that our customers need to automate their processes and use their existing investments in our desktop products to bring their processes to the cloud for collaboration and automation at scale. In this class, we’ll cover all of the basics in the Design Automation for Inventor Forge service. We’ll walk through an example of an Inventor add-in and iLogic, turning this into a Design Automation AppBundle, and go through all of the steps necessary to go from the desktop to Forge. This will include code samples, as well as a working end-to-end example of both desktop code and Design Automation code. You’ll walk away knowing all of the building blocks and have a solid starting point for automating your processes on Forge. 60 Minutes Instructional Demo Andrew Akenson
FDC323090 - Automation Workflows with the Forge Design Automation API for Inventor Automating workflows and processes increases productivity, reduces errors, and saves costs.  Now you can automate your Inventor processes in the cloud – to achieve collaboration and automation at scale. In this class we will present five examples of what can be done with Forge and the Design Automation API for Inventor. These will be running examples with reference code available in github. The purpose of this class is to stimulate your creativity by demonstrating  what can be done - and also to provide sample code as a springboard to accelerate your own automation development. The five examples will be: A web based configurator, automating BOM pricing and supply by leveraging the design and back end systems, generating an assembly and drawings from iLogic rules, building product content by connecting Design Automation API for Inventor to Design Automation API for Revit and setting up a Design Checker for enforcing company standards. 60 Minutes Pre-conference Session Andrew Akenson
