AutoCAD Utility Design

AutoCAD® Utility Design software is a model-based design solution for electrical distribution networks that combines design and documentation with standards-driven workflows and analysis. Utility designers and engineers can improve productivity, analyze and optimize network designs for performance and reliability, and deliver more consistent and coordinated construction documentation—all in a familiar AutoCAD® software environment.

Design Management

My responsibilities as design manager for the AutoCAD Utility Design 2012 release project were:

  • Assist Product Management group with Product Definition and Requirements Prioritization;
  • Work with Software Architects to create and review Design Briefs;
  • Project and People Management of a team of user experience professionals with planning and coordination of user research activities;
  • Produce and/or review various User Experience Design deliverables (like Use Case DocumentsSwinLane Diagrams);
  • Request, review and approve visual design documentation;
  • Plan, coordinate and execute various usability engineering activities (i.e.: Concept Validation, Usability Testing, etc).

Product Highlights
