Ping Fu, CEO of software company, Geomagic, shared her insight on the transformative powers of technology with President Obama, senior White House staff, and other leading U.S. executives on January 14th at the White House Forum on Modernizing Government.
The forum brought 50 private sector leaders to Washington to share business best practices and ideas on leveraging technology to streamline federal operations, improve customer service, and maximize technology return on investment. In addition to Fu, forum attendees included Sam Allen of Deere and Company, Steve Ballmer of Microsoft, John Chen of Sybase, Chris Hughes of Facebook, Andrea Jung of Avon, Shantanu Narayen of Adobe, Indra Nooyi of PepsiCo, and John Riccitiello of Electronic Arts.
Fu offered a unique perspective to the forum: her company is pioneering 3D software that fundamentally changes the way products are designed, inspected and manufactured.
While 3D has taken centre stage recently in entertainment and consumer arenas – from the record-breaking Avatar to 3D TV at CES – a more important 3D revolution is taking place in manufacturing and medical facilities around the world. Geomagic Qualify software enables fast, accurate, graphical comparisons between digital reference models and as-built parts for first-article inspection, production inspection, and supplier quality management. Companies such as Pratt & Whitney, Schneider Electric and Alcoa Howmet have used Geomagic Qualify to improve quality and reduce inspection time.
