Who Ranked as the Best Product and Machine Design Software

Feb. 5, 2015
The winter 2015 rankings of the best product and machine design software published by G2 Crowd is here.

The first Grid report for product and machine design software, published by business software review site G2 Crowd, ranks seven products to help purchasers in their selections.

The Winter 2015 report is based on more than 170 reviews written by business and engineering professionals.

The Grid, which is created from G2 Crowd's software review platform, factors in customer satisfaction reported by users and vendor market presence determined from social and public data to rank products.

Product and machine design software is a subcategory of computer-aided design (CAD) software, targeted specifically toward designers and engineers across a number of disciplines, including manufacturing, product design, automotive, and aerospace. These tools allow users to generate precision 3D models of parts, components, and assemblies to aid in engineering, manufacturing, and design processes.

To qualify as a Leader, a product must receive a high customer satisfaction score and have substantial market presence. SOLIDWORKS, Inventor, AutoCAD Mechanical and Solid Edge were named Leaders in the report. SOLIDWORKS earned the highest overall customer satisfaction score.

Across all product and machine design platforms, reviewers reported the product they use meets their requirements at an average rate of 82%, and on average reviewers said they were 80% likely to recommend the product they use.

Of the nearly 20 software vendors listed in G2 Crowd’s Product and Machine Design category, the seven ranked products each received 10 or more reviews to qualify for inclusion on the Grid.

Satisfaction rankings are generated from the user reviews, and market presence is calculated from vendor size, market share, and social impact. Based on a combination of these scores, each software solution is categorized as a Leader, High Performer, Contender, or Niche.

Premium research access can be purchased on the site for $599. These offer the original data for filtering and weighting, as well as individual profiles of each platform with the most helpful positive and negative product and machine design software reviews, detailed company information, user satisfaction ratings, feature scores and customer metrics. Future refreshes of the Grid℠ will provide updated rankings based on the latest reviews and social data.
