BIM Versus AutoCAD(D) – What’s the Difference?

While today we live in an era of technological advancement, there were times that the design and drafting need to be hand-drawn throughout the project life cycle. It was a tedious task but had no other way around. But with today’s software catering to the needs of the professionals, AutoCAD and BIM are few of the most used and widely popular amongst the construction and design industry professionals.

So what is CAD(D) exactly?

CAD stands for computer-aided design. You can also add an extra D for drafting as well. It is used for design development and optimizing your work. It enables the professionals to design on their computer screen and save it for editing in the future. It is used for preliminary designing, layout, detailing work and also calculations. You can also make a 3D representation of the object in CAD(D).

Professionals whom it caters to –

1. Engineers

2.Architects

3.Designers

With CAD in the background, the professionals are freaking out over BIM and the easy workflow that it offers.

So, what is the hype over BIM?

Well, the hype is real and for some real reasons! Unlike CAD being software, BIM is a process through which generating drawings are much easier and faster. Here is an illustration explaining the many facets of BIM 

It facilitates all the important aspects of designing in the form of digital representation. Not just geometrical, it covers everything from a spatial relationship, light analysis, geographical form, etc.

Professionals whom it caters to –

1.Engineers

2.Architects

3.Designers

4.Constructors

5.Business Owners

Still, confused?

CAD is the software dedicated in design and drafting works, whereas BIM is a process, a methodology by which professionals can work collaboratively to design and build a building, establishing the same details use and computer model. This allows for easier communication and breaks the barriers of time and distance. It does so by acting as a common resource working across multiple disciplines of designing and drafting.

Since both differ in usages, it completely depends on the professionals as to what kind of outcomes they are expecting.

As far as CAD is concerned it is typically used for the industrial design of mechanical and electrical. Whereas, BIM is extensively used in the design and construction industry.

How to Avoid These 4 Mistakes While Outsourcing?

Outsourcing your business processes is not a new strategy in order to enhance your business bottom lines, however, there are certain common mistakes that can cause heavily if neglected while outsourcing. And since it can directly affect your business, it is of utmost importance you select the right partner for your process outsourcing. So, here are some common errors businesses can make 

1.Choosing Freelancers Over Companies

There is nothing called freebies in this world, everything comes at a value. Similarly, in outsourcing, businesses, especially mid-sized, tend to consider the freelancers for their ongoing jobs and one of the major reasons, rather, the only reason is Cheaper cost. Hold on, think of the risks involved here –

Is the person reliable and accountable?

Can he perform variety of work that you might need in the domain?

Is he capable enough to deliver on time?

Does he match your quality standards every single time?

And if you have slightest of concerns on these questions, think of the risk you are taking that can cause to your business.

Against that, think of the company with complete business set up and predefined delivery processes, ensuring responsibility and accountability. You have a specific point of contact and you get a right set of people to deliver your projects on time even if you have a sudden spike in work, with consistency in quality. Which one should you prefer?

2.Communication

While outsourcing your work, timely and precise communication is the key to everything! Agencies could be considerate enough to have transparent communications with you, whenever the need arises. This can bring a lot of control in your hand if you precisely know what to communicate and what are the key deliverable tracking points. You can choose to have your regular meetings on daily, weekly or biweekly basis according to the workload.

3.Lack of Research

As mentioned in our earlier blog posts as well. Research is vital, if you want to bring quality on the table!

Following are the points that can be verified while researching about your outsourcing business

c. Technical Reliability- Access to skilled talent, expertise in different software and domain with updated infrastructure to suit the new age standards of working is one of the ways in analyzing the technical reliability.

4.Geographical Location

When searching for your outsourcing vendor, it is important to understand the location dynamics as well.

What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Outsourcing?

Everything in this world has 2 sides and outsourcing is no exception to the rule. Though certain things about outsourcing can give you edge over your competitors through cost efficiency, scalability, availability of skilled talent pool, focus on core business and many more, there are certain areas, which if handled correctly, can reduce the risk involved in the business. Here are some do’s and don’ts for you to be prepared before you set your foot into your next venture.

Advantages

1. Focus on Core Business

The most vital benefit of outsourcing is that you get to focus on the most challenging part of your business more, by lending out your secondary business processes to your outsourcing vendor. This makes you invest more time in your core business activity.

2. Cost Efficiency

Outsourcing has biggest advantage of contributing to your bottom line – profits. Due to the availability of skilled resources and cheaper exchange currency rate, businesses can get the work done at relatively less cost as compared to doing it inhouse. It is estimated, depending upon the nature of business you are in, you can save up to 25% to 54% of your operational cost by outsourcing. This can help in other future investment in your business.

3. Quality & On-time Output

With Engineering graduates close to million, which contributes to a young and dynamic workforce, quality-focused and on-time work are sure to be at your disposal.

4. 24 Hours Work Cycle

One of the important advantages of outsourcing is 24 hours work cycle. Generally, outsourcing companies work in a different time zone than yours and that gives companies advantage of working round the clock. Just imagine, you left office with tasks assigned to your outsourcing partner and get completed projects in your inbox the next day.

5. Risk Sharing

By dividing your work process, you are reducing the risk factor involved in the business.

6. Knowledge Enhancement

With a talent-driven workforce, exchanging knowledge and ideas is a daily phenomenon. This helps in strengthening the bond between the two companies and taking the commitments lifelong.

Disadvantages

1. Data Security

There is always a possibility of your confidential details getting leaked or stolen. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to choose an outsourcing partner wisely. Take time and do your research first!

2. Quality Control

There is a possibility that business partner does not thoroughly understand your need and may not deliver the project as per set standards. However, it can be addressed by putting in some initial efforts. Make sure, you brief them on every single update, standards, past experiences on similar projects etc, this can surely help you achieve quality outputs with some initial learning curve. Communication is the key, do remember!

3. Rise of Hidden Costs

The contract papers could turn out to be a turmoil if not read and understood properly. Go through all those fine writings that could get easily neglected.

4. Communication Errors

Are you able to recollect/retain the exact words spoken by your manager from your previous meeting and transfer it to your colleagues? Not exactly, Right? So how can you expect the information transferred from miles away could be retained and get implemented in the same manner? So, there can be some sort of miscommunication issues that can be solved with proper communication techniques and the ability to understand each other’s perspective clearly.

5. Losing control

It may so happen that due to time, culture and geographical differences you may not be able to give due attention to your vendors. But if you know exactly what are the key factors which you need to monitor during the project completion, and focus there, you don’t really have to worry about it.

India is the most promising vendor of your outsourcing business, because of the highly skilled and educated professionals. The picture of Indian outsourcing business is wide and crystal clear to the world, thus, when it comes to quality work, there is no competition to India in the global market.

Why you should think of India as your CAD outsourcing destination?

India is one of the most searched out destinations for (Computer-Aided Design) CAD outsourcing, as India has a promising workforce that provides quality of work with the quickest turnaround time. One of the major advantages of outsourcing your CAD services to India is the labor charges as it is cheaper than many other countries.

Around 1.5 million engineers are graduated every year from the top-notch universities in India. Besides this, the Indian Government takes a keen interest in promoting a safe and secure environment for the outsourcing businesses. With millions of engineering graduates passing out of universities and colleges every year, availability of quality talent pool is never a problem in India.

Here are 5 reason why you should outsource to India-

  1. Talent Pool

Millions of students are coming out as engineering graduates. So, clearly there is no dearth of skilled workforce.

Moreover, as of 2018 India’s literacy rate is 74.04% according to UNESCO. Isn’t it the best time partnering with India?

  1. Cost Efficiency

Hiring in-house members for non-creative or non-core business activities which can be outsourced, can be a tedious affair! The infrastructure, administration cost, training cost or any other engagement cost for the work force is immense and maintaining it is another trouble. Also, it makes sense to outsource your work where you can get it done in relatively lesser cost. Though cheaper price does not guarantee you with good quality work always, you should consider an outsourcing partner that value your money and gives you quality output. If you look at the conversion rates of ($) dollar to INR and quality of work you get, one can clearly make a judgement, India is the best outsourcing destination.

  1. Superior Work Quality

Due care is taken to ensure that correct parameters and techniques are used for delivering you quality over anything else.

  1. Friendly Government Policies
