Taha Computer-Aided Data Exchange
Are you still using paper to transfer data?
In 2004, the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) released a report on the impact of the lack of digital interoperability in the capital projects industry. Based on interviews and survey responses, $15.8 billion in annual interoperability costs were quantified for the capital facilities industry in 2002. see the report here or here. (Cost Analysis of Inadequate Interoperability in the U.S. Capital Facilities Industry)
On average about 20-30% of the Engineers and Designers time are spent on creating paper documents or interpreting these documents to transfer data from Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) applications to Computer-Aided Design (CAD) applications.
A lot of these tasks can be replaced by what we call Computer-Aided Data Exchange (CAX).
As an example, a structural engineer will create a lot of sketches on paper to convey engineering information from their structural engineering application to the designers, so that they can implement, draft or model them in CAD applications.
This will be even more cumbersome when the design changes and the engineers have to repeat this tedious task all over again and again.
With the right CAX technology, you are not only able to save time on these data transfers, but also omit the human error factor which leads to time waste or even collateral damage costs.
Although a lot of effort has been made in the last 30 years to automate the data transfer between applications, what is called interoperability, still there is no off-the-shelf and ready-to-use product that can be utilised for such a purpose. Hence engineers and drafters still work with pen and paper even in today's world of robust technologies.
We at Taha Solutions are approaching this challenge with the Think Big Act Small (TBAS) methodology. We are creating a SaaS solution that can be used for these types of data transfers.
Although at the beginning our platform will be only covering some applications, we will continue adding more and more applications to it.
