“Working smarter”, not harder

by Manny Yap

Cebu, October 10th, 2018. I have been with TecSurge for almost 2 years and my time has been full of challenges and opportunities. When I first joined, it was like a “culture shock” for me since I was used to multi-year, long-term engineering projects, whereas most TecSurge clients are looking to address short-term requirements. While it took me some time to adjust, it also created opportunities for me to learn about new software and expand my skills. The chance to increase my knowledge is what I like most about working for TecSurge: before, I was just a Smart 3D Administrator, but now I know Smart Reference Data and other applications as well!

London, September 20th, 2018. Since the beginning of 2016 I have had the privilege of working very closely with an Italian shipbuilding company.

…a most efficient way to your digital twin

By Anton Schreibmueller

Singapore, April 20th, 2018. With Industry 4.0 initiatives gaining more and more traction across many industry sectors, digital transformation has become a high priority. I have met with many companies who are embarking on their journey to establish an accurate digital representation of existing facilities (a.k.a. a “digital twin”), and this is the first challenge and prerequisite to unlocking hidden asset value.

Who can you trust?

By Patrick Mackinlay

Bangkok, March 13th, 2018. I can distinctly remember times when I was neck-deep in configuring, administering and supporting multiple complex systems for a project, and wished I could share some of my technical discoveries and challenges with peers at other companies. Unfortunately, the default industry mode of strict confidentiality makes that very difficult, outside of the very occasional user group meeting or other chance social encounter.

The “lumpy nature” of the real world

by Rengan Jayakrishnan

Pune, February 14th, 2017. One of the challenges faced by many of our clients is controlling costs in the face of dynamic demand. While companies are usually able to predict demand within a reasonable tolerance over a defined future period, these predictions are by their nature aggregates, and can’t be accurately matched to the “lumpy nature” of the real world.
