CAD Outsourcing Follows IT Outsourcing Path to India
IT outsourcing is one of the leading business trends globally, and India has not just fashioned a path as the IT outsourcing destination of choice, it has essentially blazed a trail.
India has made giant strides in delivering quantity with quality and built a reliable reputation in the outsourcing industry.
In 2015, India’s piece of the pie in the $108 billion global IT-BPM (business process management) industry was as big as 56%, according to estimates by India’s NASSCOM, (National Association of Software & Services Companies), a sizeable helping. Though this percentage has decreased due to global political developments, India still accounts for the lion’s share. The Indian IT outsourcing industry, having placed its considerably big foot in the door of global outsourcing, has now created opportunities for other businesses to follow it, namely the growing phenomenon of CAD outsourcing, offering services such as architectural drafting, Revit architecture services and BIM modelling services.
India's Role in the CAD Outsourcing Industry
India’s key strength in the CAD outsourcing industry, as in other outsourcing fields, is its ability to adapt to changing requirements globally. Its customer service and efficiency are noticeably of a high standard, and this bodes well for the future too. When Western markets emphasise the importance of cost-reduction, greater productivity, skilled personnel, service quality and business process excellence, India is first choice. With its large and ever-growing bank of skilled technical staff, India will continue to be a preferred partner.
Indian outsourcing firms have shown particular skill in the field of CAD services. Using technology to design and draft objects and structures is a specific niche area where India is an emerging power. Pertinent factors include a vast selection of qualified engineers and architects, wide use and fluency in English and comparatively lower costs in manpower. Indian companies have delivered an array of CAD services globally, such as CAD conversion, CAD drafting, 3D modelling services, conversion of paper drawings to CAD, architectural drafting and now BIM.
BIM and CAD offers phenomenal advantages to real estate developers, architects, engineers, interior designers and other clients. Some of these are:
Advantages of CAD Outsourcing to India
Some of the reasons why CAD outsourcing to India is beneficial:
Weathering a storm of controversies and changing global political dynamics, outsourcing is still thriving. CAD outsourcing in India is keeping up with innovations and developing at an impressive rate.
An Evolving Scenario
In many instances, CAD drawings alone may be insufficient for the varied requirements of a modern design process. This has primarily to do with the fact that the practice of analysis using models is fast catching on. This is where Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology steps in to bat. Revit Architecture software has been built specifically for BIM and it helps to understand and analyze design concepts and accurately maintain coordinated design data through documentation and construction. The ‘revise instantly’ central core of the software means that with Revit architecture models, all plans, sections, and elevations are intelligently connected to each another.
So, BIM modelling makes design information available in an integrated format. This way, design intent and modifications can be easily comprehended, monitored, tested and evaluated. BIM facilitates the immediate availability of documents (e.g., drawings, lists, tables and 3D renderings). BIM models are more accurate, coordinated and help drive an efficient process. Its provision for integrated information cuts down on re-checking, re-grouping and re-formatting information, thereby speeding up the process of sharing accurate information, reducing costs, automating the process and supporting maintenance and operations.
All relevant participants are able to participate in every aspect of the project in this approach. In conjunction with 2D drawings, owners are able to access a huge supply of information that can be modified to fit their changing requirements. They can participate in virtual walk-throughs, detailed equipment lists and accurate cost estimates. Indian companies’ drive to constantly upgrade themselves ensures that they are more than able to deliver projects involving BIM modelling.
As with all other trends, trends in CAD outsourcing to India are predicted to fluctuate in the next year.
The CAD outsourcing exodus to India is a global phenomenon that seems on track to endure for some time. Greater cooperation and collaboration across nations means that India needs to maintain best standards in every sphere of the business process to retain its most favoured nation status in the CAD outsourcing industry, which at the moment reigns virtually supreme.
