As we gear up for SolidWorks World 2012, we'll be running a series of interviews that shine a spotlight on our employees from different parts of the world, and why you might consider attending.
To kick off the series, we interviewed SolidWorks Area Technical Manager, Timoteo Muller, about design and innovation trends in Brazil, and why he’s looking forward to attending SolidWorks World this year. You may also know Timoteo from the SolidWorks Brazil blog.
Below are his insights, and we’re looking forward to meeting users from Brazil at the show.
Q: What design/engineering challenges are unique to your region?
A: In Brazil, more and more customers are designing large, complex datasets, so the challenge is always managing the massive amount of data. Another unique challenge is being able to integrate with current market technologies and complex workflows.
Q: Can you give a couple examples of how customers in your region are using SolidWorks in unique ways?
A: We have customers in the energy and oil and gas industries that are using SolidWorks’ products in interesting ways. It is amazing to see our oil and gas customers developing underwater equipment to explore the pre-salt in the Brazilian coast. Our customers in the energy industry are using our solutions like Enterprise PDM to develop complete projects around hydroelectric plants, which are critical to the region.
Q: What do you enjoy most about SolidWorks World personally?
A: The thing I enjoy most about SolidWorks World is the opportunity to learn about our product enhancements and to get a full preview of releases for the coming year.
