I would like to get a group of engineers and engineering managers together to discuss various topics. How many engineers/managers do we have on the forum? I'd like to discuss outsourcers, software, ideas etc etc.
This is right in line with something I have been organizing myself .... would love to join in or partner.
I have hosted a business mastermind group with a rotating "hot seat" format where each week one person shares a specific problem within their business that the group then shares experience & solutions. To close the meeting weekly goals are set by everyone. It is very motivational.
I often though to myself that it would be great to do something similar with engineers. Topics could be specific to a project or business matters. Perhaps even follow the same format.
Our conferencing platform is zoom.us of which I have a pro account and would be more than willing to allow the group to use.
We did a couple of engineer's forums in our local AWI chapter, it was worth a ton. I'd definitely be in.
Jonah... that sounds great. Can I ask how many attended these events? What was the format?
There were about a dozen engineers. The format was mostly self-directed. We each brought a set of representative shop drawings and passed them around, talked about issues we all experience, various methods and materials used, etc. It was hard to keep it from turning into a bitch-fest about engineering software, we got stuck in that rut on several occasions.
I'd like to discuss outsourcer providers and their quality. Ways people are scripting around various problems. I'm not sure if Woodweb is the place to do it. I almost want to start a yammer page or something similar.
OK, you have my attention.
Keep me posted (if I'm allowed to play ;))
I'm interested if the group remains focused on Woodworking. Subjects such as programing, machine/robotics interfacing, software, engineering platforms, optimizers, cut listing, shipping manifests, pre/post processing, drafting 2D/3D, laser technology, photo templating, department equipment: printers, plotters, flat storage, file and record storage, work stations, ect; FTP sites, estimating, tracking time, performance levels and criteria, communications, bidding/pricing, formats, ect; best practices, AWS, QCP, IDA, NAAWS, ADA, IBC, LEED, FSC, CSI...I could add a lot more. We concentrate on topics that are woodworking centered, I'm down for it.
