Computer Aided Design (CAD) Software - Category Spend Analysis

According to procurement research analysts at SpendEdge, the high adoption of CAD dependent concepts such as concurrent engineering and technologies such as CAM and 3D printing are the major growth drivers for the global computer-aided design (CAD) software market. Concurrent engineering or simultaneous engineering is a methodology that is based on parallelization of the task of designing and development of products. In this, different stages of product development such as design engineering, manufacturing engineering, and other functions are integrated for enhancing productivity, decreasing design and development time, and reducing the cost incurred in various processes. The concurrent engineering concept requires integration of CAD in the product development process of the organization.

CAM is an application technology that utilizes numerical control programming software applications to create detailed machining instructions that drive machine tools such as CNC for manufacturing parts. Utilization of CAM applications leads to the following benefits for organizations:

  • CAM application software aid in automation of the manufacturing processes involved in production
  • CAM systems aid in creation, verification, and optimization of machining productivity as well as the documentation of the machining process and commands
  • Integration of CAM with PLM aided manufacturing planning and production processes for ensuring usage of the correct data and standardized resources
  • CAM increases production efficiency along with increasing production speeds, better raw material consistency, and precision in tooling accuracy of machines. Moreover, it aids in the implementation of advanced productivity tools such as simulation and material optimization

CAM is a subsequent computer-aided process used in the manufacturing of machine components and products, and it requires CAD and CAE. This is because component models are generated and verified by CAD and CAE before being fed in CAM for production. This increasing adoption of CAM in the market due to its various advantages is also supplementing the demand for CAD software.

CAD Software - Procurement Best Practices

One of the procurement best practices for buyers is to assess suppliers for scalability and flexibility. Procurement and deployment of CAD software in an organization requires proper training of the employees and hands-on experience on the software for effective utilization. Hence, it is important for buyers to access the scalability and flexibility of the software offerings by suppliers . The software offered by suppliers should be flexible to accommodate the changes for meeting future business requirements. The software offering should also be scalable to meet the requirements of buyers in case of future expansion into different segments, thus enabling them to have consistency in the type of software deployed throughout organization.

CAD Software - Procurement Challenges

According to this procurement research, one of the major procurement challenges faced by buyers in the CAD software market is the interoperability issues in integration with CAE analysis such as structural mechanics, electromagnetics, and fluid dynamics. For instance, in integration of CAD with computational fluid dynamics translation errors regarding holes, floating point arithmetic, and tolerances arise in the design. The scope of such errors in the system affects the reliability of the integration, thus becoming a pain point for buyers
