This event will highlight the journey of Starline Windows as they navigate challenges and solutions of growing and adapting in their industry. Hear directly from the client on how they were able to identify their pain points and implement solutions to streamline their businesses communication, organization and workflow. Learn insights on how to apply these tools to your own organization from our team of industry professionals and the Queen of Prefab herself, Amy Marks.

As a VP of Industrialized Construction Strategy and Evangelista from Autodesk Amy Marks will take us through a vision of the future and industrialized Construction. She will also explore 3 major challenges that are influencing the building manufacturing industry as it relates to RFQ/Rendering, Process Engineering and Business Systems Integrations and discuss how these key challenges have affected Starline Windows with Solutions Analyst, Catherine Walmsley.

After uncovering the challenges Starline faced, and the solutions that help improve their bottlenecks, what is next for Starline? Join Catherine and the SolidCAD team for a brief overview on the next steps Starline is taking on the road to success.

Featured Guest: Catherine Walmsley

Catherine is a solutions analyst with a passion for her work with the Continuous Improvement department. During her 10 years at Starline Windows, Catherine has focused on software implementations, custom software design, lean manufacturing process engineering and strategic planning initiatives. Catherine’s work at Starline spans everything from building design and information management to product installation and change management.

Keynote Speaker: Amy Marks

Amy Marks, VP, Industrialized Construction Strategy and Evangelism at Autodesk is known throughout the world as the “Queen of Prefab.” At Autodesk, she informs product strategy, thought leadership and convergence consulting for customers incorporating industrialized construction methodologies. Prior to joining Autodesk, she defined the language, process and frameworks that are adopted by companies, universities and countries around the world reflecting the convergence of Design-Make-Operate models. Notably, Amy was appointed by the Singapore government’s Building & Construction Authority as an international expert to advise its design and construction productivity roadmap. Her thought leadership and tenacity, leading alongside the government and industry, resulted in unprecedented change and innovation – catapulting Singapore to worldwide recognition in the Industrialized Construction space. She is a graduate of the University of Florida and an alumna of the Harvard Business School.

Join Amy Marks, VP of Industrialized Construction Strategy and Evangelism from Autodesk as she takes us through a vision of the future  and industrialized Construction. She will also explore 3 major challenges that are influencing the building manufacturing industry as it relates to RFQ/Rendering, Process Engineering and Business Systems Integrations.

Join Catherine Walmsley, Business Analyst from Starline Windows as she takes us through the background and challenges they faced in a everchanging industry and what drove them to change their process and adopt a PLM strategy.

Anyone can figure out how to put a quote together but understanding at the end of the day how much money was made, and specifically where there is room for improvement is much harder. This session uncovers how PLM really stands out in being able to relate material costs, even historical averages of material costs, from when a quote was submitted to actual costs over time on a project and analyzing the original quote compared to final project costs.

Traditionally manufacturing companies have approached product design with an expectation that users will trigger change of states manually. However, today’s chaotic workforce isn’t as good at doing that anymore, especially the work from home crowd. Integrating users model creation software with an automated reporting tool is the most effective way to govern content creation and continue to scale up effectively.

Explore how implementing a change management system PLM and ACC, having the same information available across all software applications, agile manufacturing and product delivery can improve this challenge.

It is evident that multiple software are needed to accommodate the needs of an organization. It is challenging to have the same information available across all software applications in the company. Additionally, external processes need to be integrated and connected to internal processes.

Automations between Autodesk software enabled Starline to extract Revit model information into Inventor where Inventor generates manufacturing 3D models. 3D model data, supply chain information and costs are then reviewed and approved in a complete Bill of Materials in PLM. Learn how the integration from PLM to ACC allows field personnel to always access the latest information while internal personnel can track the project status with PLM.

After uncovering the challenges Starline faced, and the solutions that help improve their bottlenecks, what is next for Starline? Join Catherine and the SolidCAD team for a brief overview on the next steps to get Starline one step closer to success.
