The Huntsville folks then get to focus on problems that are closer to the customer. What does my sheet metal part look like when I unbend it? How do I display the data using the right engineering standard? What is the best user interface for working with Synchronous Technology (and vice versa – what will customers want in the next version of synchronous technology?)
Of course, we have all the functional areas discussed in my last post – developers, quality assurance, planners and educational media. The Huntsville office also has the Solid Edge GTAC support team. If you ever call into them, they are some of the nicest, most helpful people you will meet (and I’m not just saying this because their group will sometimes make waffles to share with the rest of the Solid Edge team).
Huntsville is also the location where much of our beta testing takes place. In the coming weeks, we will be hosting a number of customers ready to try out our new enhancements, verify their real life processes are supported by our software and help us fine tune our release.
