Visual Engineer - Ready to Transform an Industry.
It's great to hear from you. Please submit your experiences for publication here.
An Email From An Engineer Using Visual Engineer to a Colleague He Once Worked With:
"I would like to introduce you to a good friend of mine Doug Bess. He is the creator and owner of the newly developed software Visual Engineer. He would like to demonstrate his software for you guys at [...] We had it installed here at [...] about a month ago and are already reaping the benefits. I know this sounds like a freaking Amway presentation but it’s not; this is hands down the best software I have ever used (or even seen) for us Avionics Guys (and you know I’ve been around L).
The software works through Microsoft Visio, the Visual Engineer portion is a database with a bunch of error checking algorithms. Basically an entire database of information that you continue to utilize over and over that is completely customizable. In addition to the wire diagrams, it produces your BOM, Wire Lists, Equipment Lists, Cut Lists, Hook-up Lists, and all of the information in the wire diagram sliced any way you want it, at the push of a button.
One more benefit is it can also produce your Tech Pub documents with no additional work or interface! No manual entry errors, no typo errors, no checking errors. It really is incredible.
We are literally looking at a 30 to 40% reduction in hours on our first project. Easily 50% on our next! Now this doesn’t replace or perform any of the routing drawings, those will still need to be done in AutoCAD, but the parts lists and all of that will already be complete from VE.
One more note I have to add, we were able to purchase it not only to cut our hours but we pushed it through (the higher-ups) with ease because we took the ‘we have to stay competitive’ angle. If someone else has this tool, no matter how good you are engineering-wise there is no way you can even come close to being competitive hour-wise."
That's the way to spread the word... and thank you.
