What Should Rick Chin Work On Next?

Rick Chin, our Director of Product Innovation, needs something new to work on. So he wants you to help him decide. Keep reading for more.

Over the past 14 months, I have been working on the new SolidWorks Sustainability product, which we are in the middle of launching.  With the release of this product, my participation is winding down.  I now need to start working on my next project.  I had a couple of ideas, but decided to instead start with some upfront customer research.  The plan is to use the research to inspire what this next project should be.

We want this next project to be relevant and important to our customers in a big way.  So we want to take a fundamental look at your job as a design professional.  

  • What are the important things you need to accomplish?  
  • What are the things getting in your way?  
  • What in your current design process contributes or takes away from your competitive edge?  
  • What makes collaboration with others effective or a total waste of your time?  

Our goal is to "unleash the uber-engineer or designer in you"!

Please take this survey.  It will take you less than 15 minutes to complete.  Help us to give you the products you really want.  Thank you in advance for your time.
