We work closely with their leadership to craft multi-year strategies, with direct access to subject matter experts and end users who help us continuously drive toward business value. Some questions we’ve tackled: *How can software automatically lay out a building’s structural system based on unique constraints?* *How can software encourage reusable solutions that can be manufactured more sustainably and efficiently? How can we help a designer explore a thousand ideas in the time it currently takes to explore one?* Answers to these questions require passion for design and engineering that comes from every level of our company.
