2. The speed of design work
Using various software types is also extremely time-consuming. Although 45% of people said designing the connection took less than 2 hours, 33% of people said it took them 2-4 hours. More worryingly, 11% said it took between 4-8 hours and 10% said it took over 8 hours. Carrying out various design checks - either manually or with different software - requires a lot of effort.
Another respondent emphasised: “We need a design software to speed up design work.” This is reiterated by our Hilti Product Manager for Technical Software, Carlos Taborda, who says that the lack of integrated software was holding Engineers back.
Carlos explains: “Using lots of methods to split up the connection means that there isn't one reliable source to do the calculations. The change from one source to another affects their productivity.”
