I have been using Pro/E for many a year now and I come from a qualified and experienced background. I have accepted a position in a company that is primarily a Machine Design House where I start after Christmas and I am looking forward to it. They use AutoDesk Inventor (Version 7 or 8 I think) as their software for design and development. Their reasons for not using Pro/E is because they say; 1) Pro/E is more expensive; 2) harder and longer to learn; 3) more expensive training costs; 4) they are getting along with Inventor and it gets the job done; 5) lastly Pro/E personnel are harder to retain because they are more in demand and also demand a higher salary. Right, that is the background and here is the question. -->> What is the ammunition that can be fired back at them to say that they would be better off with Pro/E as opposed to Inventor given their POINTS to the contrary? You see I have no experience with AutoDesk Inventor and I am guessing that there are some of you that have experience with both Pro/E and Inventor.
