CAD/CAM/CAE Observer
The PLM Magazine, analytical edition in Russian language

, , . ...


Our new Project rightfully opens the interview of Evgeni Savtchenko, the leader of the CAD/CAM/CAE department of Sukhoi Design Bureau. This remarkable, frank material I advise to read all, who are interested in the history of the success in far from simple task of the creation of its own CAD/CAM/CAE/PDM system.

Without rejecting the critical approach both to the achievements of the key software developers in particular, and to the evaluation of the development of CAD/CAM/PLM market as a whole, we, apparently, grew to understand the importance of such magazines activity, as the propaganda of the success formula of the key users of these products. It is no secret that the enterprise leaders, responsible for adoption (just as the nonacceptance!) of the decisions, often do not have sufficient knowledge in this sphere or resoluteness to make a choice. I will not say, what more however it is known that road will master going, but fate caresses young and zealous.

The limitedness of the existing financial and human resources often cover the absence of the necessary skills of the enterprise heads. As a consequence seeming inoffensive islets of idiocy on the industrial map of the country are merging into the entire archipelagoes...

In the existing situation we distinctly see the task set in front of our magazine to regularly retell the companies leaders about actually successful examples of CAD/CAM/CAE/PDM systems introduction and implementation in Russian enterprises. Thus such examples are far not so many, as it would like to, but no longer so few. There are plenty of things to look at and to learn from! This is actually the main sense and the content of our new Project, which we named THE SUCCESS FORMULA. Published for your attention E.I. Savtchenko interview first sign of this Project.

What particular genre interview, reportage or the classical Successful story will prove to be the most appropriate in each specific case of propaganding achievements of manufacturing sector pace-makers, will be depended not only on our creative potential, but also on the preferences of Project participants. Each, who strives for success, must pass the whole way. Each has its own; however in time gotten knowledge and experience of colleagues will help to avoid the difficult mistakes.
