Engineers and Calculations
|Event Date/Time: Nov 02, 2009||End Date/Time: Nov 03, 2009|
This seminar looks at the defaulting dysfunctional relationship that exists between engineers, computers and the calculations. Over the last fifteen years, the engineering drawing office has changed beyond recognition and slowly engineers are losing the lead roles on major projects.
While standards and codes govern the need for the quality of the analysis, there are no standards for the calculations themselves! It is a situation that exists in every corner of the globe. Is the engineering profession in crisis?
The seminar looks at the footprints of our habits and the many paths we did not take in the Computer Age and how you can adapt easily. The seminar will show how common defaulting habits can be changed and you can recover the path to engineering leadership.
Many case studies are demonstrated to prove that MS Word, Excel and VBA are more than equal to the task. The power of VBA will transform the experience of preparing the calculations and is the ideal tool for you to maximize the productivity in your work. It will showcase database and level IV examples.
This unique seminar is not just about Word, Excel or VBA; it is about your role and the opportunity to do so much more to meet the challenges of the future. Through the power of the calculations, you will be inspired to lead, teach and talk about what you can do; raise your game to a new level.
Course materials and a light lunch are included.
