Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 3, 2005
Cyco Software, a leading provider of Engineering Data Management (EDM) solutions, announced today that its representatives will be hosting several conference presentations during National Manufacturing Week that will be held at ChicagoÂs McCormick Place, March 7-10. In partnership with Hagerman & Company, Cyco Software also exhibits its data management solutions for small to medium-size manufacturing companies in booth 3724 at the National Design and Engineering show, which is one of eight shows organized during this national event.
Cyco Software will be presenting the following sessions in room 405B at the McCormick Place Convention Center:
"Lessons from the 2003 U.S. Blackout - Access to Accurate Technical Documents to Quickly Restore Operations" (Wednesday, 3/9/2005 from 8:30 a.m. - 9:20 a.m.)
Description: During 2003's blackout, fifty million people were without power in eight states and parts of Canada. The Anderson Economic Group estimated that the blackout reduced US earnings by $6,4 billion. While it took only hours for the power grid to shut down, it took 4 days to restore power to all homes and businesses.
It comes as no surprise that proper asset management is crucial to have fast access to reliable infrastructure and engineering information in times of an emergency, such as a massive blackout or terror attack, to assure effective restoration capabilities.
Allowing facility managers to quickly pull up accurate technical documentation from their data management system will save valuable time and provide an automated safeguard when dealing with major shutdowns of crucial infrastructure systems.
"Regain Your Competitive Edge by Increasing Efficiency, Reducing Costs and Shorten Your Lead Times" (Thursday, 3/10/2005 from 9:30 a.m. - 10:20 a.m.)
Description: Daratech Inc., a leading provider of information technology market research and technology assessment, forecasts the PLM market will grow at an annual rate of approximately 8% through 2008. This presentation discusses what engineering data management (EDM) and product lifecycle management (PLM) means to your organization, and how it can create new levels of efficiency to remain competitive.
"Hidden Costs Decrease Project Margins. Where Are These Hidden Costs and What Can Be Done About Them?" (Wednesday, 3/9/2005 from 11:30 a.m. - 12:20 p.m.)
Description: During the course of a manufacturing project often money is wasted. Many of the costs associated with the project are hidden due to a lack of documentation. As a result, errors can occur that range from hardcopies printed too often to a faulty prototype that has to be discarded. Also, what is considered normal daily routine can potentially cost a lot more than needed simply because the routine itself is not as efficient as it could be. In this presentation, Cyco will discuss what to do about these hidden expenses so that companies can cut project costs, which will lead to healthy project margins.
