Inside Daimler Mercedes and their CAD system switch

Inside Daimler Mercedes and their CAD system switch | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in 3D, CAD, and mobile. | Scoop.it

Large automotive OEMs don't switch CAD software.  It's just too expensive to change.  That's why it was such a big deal when Daimler AG - Mercedes chose to make this dramatic move in late 2010. The company announced that it would replace Dassault Systèmes CATIA with its toughest competitor, Siemens PLM's NX.

Jed Fisher's insight:

This is a good overview on Daimler's journey so far in regards to switching CAD systems.

I've been following this since the first day it was announced. I still struggle to believe it will actually be done successfully. It's one thing to change the next model to a new CAD package (hard enough) but to change over all data - huge.

Apple's CarPlay: What You Need to Know

Apple's CarPlay: What You Need to Know | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in 3D, CAD, and mobile. | Scoop.it

Apple finally took the wraps off its in-car software platform, CarPlay on Monday. Now that that we've had some time to take a look at its particulars, it's time to delve into exactly what this new mobile environment means for the drivers and automakers alike.

 

iPhone users always want their content at their fingertips," said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of iPhone and iOS product marketing, in a statement. "CarPlay lets drivers use their iPhone in the car with minimized distraction."

 

Jed Fisher's insight:

 This is a good look at what Apple's CarPlay system is and how it may stack up against the competition.

It's also a good article to follow the Internet Of Everything link.

I'm very interested in this. There are a ton of solutions that really fit well for an in-car experience. The key for the App developers is to make compelling Apps that make sense and work well from within the car. 

It seems to me that this is a very small but safe step for Apple. It allows for some basic Apple iOS integration and probably "holds the fort" until they are able/ready to be more disruptive.

Ford's Open Sync and open developer approach is enticing a lot of people.

Regardless, to whoever "wins", I love that this will result in Apps that let me better engage, use, and understand my particular vehicle, it's location, and what can be done with it. I personally, cannot wait until we go beyond Music/Maps/Voice-control - there is so, so much more.

How much does it cost to develop an app? The true price of starting from scratch

How much does it cost to develop an app? The true price of starting from scratch | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in 3D, CAD, and mobile. | Scoop.it

Everyone knows about the big names:  Angry Birds, Candy Crush, Facebook, Twitter, Uber, Instagram. Countless others have transformed mobile apps from a millennial phenomenon into something even old ladies use with their bridge club. App development has become a multi-billion dollar industry with seemingly endless potential.

So, how does an entrepreneur enter this business?  How do you build an app?

Jed Fisher's insight:

Interesting article. $150K for an App is a lot! I suspect part of the reason for this biting off a lot (too much) for a version 1.0. 

I'm used to quickly identify, evaluate, and test product ideas (rapid design and prototyping) and then quickly (but effectivily) building software (rapid development). 

What I love about "App" development is that can be so quick, it is interactive, it's fun, it's effective, and low cost to develop for! It is very reasonable to have a strong version 1.0 at a fraction of the above cost.


At 4D Pipeline we employ a worldwide interdisciplinary team of product managers, designers and software developers that work together to quickly develop prototypes and then MVP's. The Minimum Viable Product process helps keep costs down and takes an “aim an steer” approach for the best possible product outcome and experience.On time, on-budget, great results. You own all the IP.


Understanding what's most valuable (define),

Focus on the user and their experience (design)

Rapid MVP development (develop)

And make a social/viral/sharing product (deploy).

 

Define | Design | Develop | Deploy.

It’s Over For Paid Apps, With A Few Exceptions

It’s Over For Paid Apps, With A Few Exceptions | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in 3D, CAD, and mobile. | Scoop.it
Is it over for paid mobile apps? That's the general thinking these days, as the App Stores fill up with "good enough" alternatives to paid apps, while major publishers game the charts with free offerings that make millions which can then be used...
Jed Fisher's insight:

Gone are the days of writing a simple App/Game and charging $1 for it to make a million...

The App Store is now incredibly competitive and the biggest challenge is route to market and just being found.

Even when your App is found it's hard to charge for it. One, people now expect and want "free", and two, because of the very nature of an App. i.e. An App should solve a single serve need, i.e. do one thing (point solution) really well. 

The challenge from a business model point of view is it's hard to charge for this and hard to defend against (someone else doing the same thing). 

So instead aim to solve a *complete* customer workflow (or workflows), this is valuable, this is significant. To do this however often (not always) requires more than just an App, it requires a platform of sorts. The advantage of doing all this work is it opens the door for different business models (SaaS, etc) and is also easier to defend against.

As always, the best rule of thumb is to *solve a customer need*. If you do this, you can make money from it. Guaranteed.

What I learned bootstrapping a 6-figure business from school

What I learned bootstrapping a 6-figure business from school | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in 3D, CAD, and mobile. | Scoop.it

This ain’t your typical advice blog post.

By real business I meant a business that has paying customers from day one and that makes enough money every month that I could work on it full time when I graduated.

In about 11 months we’ve built Firefly up to well into the 6 figures in recurring revenue.


Jed Fisher's insight:

The moral to this story is that it is a reminder that "it" can really can be done. 

Creating a successful startup (in any amount of time, let alone one year) is not easy. It requires discipline and a no BS approach (with yourself). It's probably the hardest thing you'll ever do.

I can speak from personal experience when I say that it's just too easy to fall into the process of reading all the best startup advice and to feel really good about progress.

For me - my startup, I made the most traction when i started running out of money/runway - suddenly this "business" that in someways was a "hobby" became - a "i need to feed my family business" - and this got me really moving fast.

Dan explains his (phenomenal and rare) experience on his blog - it's a great read and a good reminder/wakeup for starving entrepreneurs everywhere that everyday counts. Move fast, do more, learn, fix, improve, and focus on what matters most. 

To all those hard working entrepreneurs out there - I have a ton of respect for you - you are living the dream, putting your money where your mouth is. Doing your own startup is one of the best things to do in life but I share Dan's advice and remind you - don't bullshit yourself instead push hard, and find a way to overcome and make "it" happen. 

Good luck and remember, it's a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll!

It's brilliant because both Google and Nestle benefit tremendously from the marketing and *both* improve and promote their brands.

What i also love about it is that when people think "who can we partner with" we often only think about companies/people in our own industry. Chocolate and Phones - what an awesome completely different match.

However - they both have the same target market - everyday folks. 

And talk about a gutsy BIG decision to go through with. Could you imagine being the executive who pitches this (from either side)? The fact that they not only convinced everyone else in the room but the other company as well is amazing (and then went through with it)

Awesome. Love it :)

Deloitte report - Augmented Government. Transforming government services through augmented reality

"These new technologies are changing humanity's view of itself, giving people the ability to redefine the limitations and capabilities of the species, changing the nature of what it means to be human."

Jed Fisher's insight:

Outstanding report on Augmented Reality by Deloitte. Tons of great information in here and packed with some great examples what you can do with augmented reality. 

It's funny, I used to think of AR as a technology looking for a market as there are so many really poor AR demos out there, eg "view a QR code for a popup ad".

Now I look at AR as simply a user interface extention. If used right it can completely revolutionize the user experience for your App, saving customers time, adding value, and helping people understand context.

3D BIM for downstream users in field and facility management

3D BIM for downstream users in field and facility management | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in 3D, CAD, and mobile. | Scoop.it

THE CONCEPT OF FIELD BIM
There are now increasing initiatives in the construction industry to ‘virtualise’ the access to BIM data, to move it away from a static office environment and to enable it to become relevant on-site. GPS and Wi-Fi enabled handheld Toughbooks and iPads are seen by some as the ideal interface to facilitate ‘field BIM’ and communicate building information bi-directionally between individual operators in the field and a central server. They allow crews on site (both during and after construction) to interrogate the physical building, referencing it to a virtual information model (or vice versa) that contains information about construction or O&M aspects.

Jed Fisher's insight:

If you've been reading my blog for a while you will see that one of the things I'm very excited about are the changes and opportunities in the BIM and AEC/O (Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Owners) space.

 

With similarities to the manufacturing PLM space, the AEC BIM space is finally modernizing itself and starting to take advantage of all the tremendous advances in mobile, collaboration, cloud, access anywhere, etc.

 

It's awesome to see 3D Visual BIM data becoming more and more accessible to downstream people, i.e. not just Architect and Engineers but owners, facility managers, and building occupants.

 

This is a great article as it reminds us that there are still truckloads (pun) of opportunities in the construction and field BIM space. We've seen a few AEC ISV companies operating in this space namely Vela (bought up by Autodesk) and also Latista. However I am sure that in the coming months we'll see more. In particular, we'll see more easy to install Apps for the field (and FM) that work with existing BIM data (if you haven't already, take a look at the bim+ approach www.bimplus.net ).

 

Exciting times ahead in the for Owners and Consumers of BIM data and all those wanting to interact and access information from buildings and from the process of building buildings.

No/little explicit marketing BS, written in "plain English", it's not trying to be more complicated than it is. It's intent is to explain the business from top to bottom to a person who knows nothings about it. It covers all the key points including what their assumptions are (and what they dont know).

It's a great example to learn from. Once again, another brilliant investment by Sequoia!

Manufacturers of building products must “wake up” to Building Information Modelling, a system to reduce waste and improve health and safety, to access a £27bn.

Companies that make building materials may be aware of Building Information Modelling, or BIM, but they need to wake up to the size of commercial opportunities.

The title says it all. BIM opportunities and particular downstream BIM opportunities are MASSIVE. 

Add GIS to BIM and things even get more exciting. Add Mobile/Glass/AR and we can significantly change the way people interact with the buildings we spend our days in. Workflows get changed - people get to do more, do new things, find information, interact, collaborate. 

The Google Maps analogy is a good one - do you even remember what it was like before Google Maps - it will be the similar when BIM reaches the mainstream.

Guillen is ready to perform his next Google Glass surgery on September 17, where he will be able to show from his perspective another operation that he invented — wireless arthroscopic surgery, which was first performed in 2007. Guillen and his team at the Clínica CEMTRO de Madrid invented the Wireless Arthroscopic Device (WAD), which is a tiny camera inserted through a small incision used to examine and sometimes repair a damaged joint. Since the joint isn’t fully opened, recovery time is much shorter.

He said that his clinic is “probably the top in the world” for such surgeries and that “all of my patients are out-patient,” including former Spanish prime minister Jose Maria Aznar, footballer Fernando “El Niño” Torres, and several rhythmic gymnasts, an Olympic sport that Spain typically medals in.
