Project: Creation of a global Autodesk Commerce Classification Scheme (ACCS)

Overview : HOPE Consulting was also involved with Autodesk Inc. for the creation of a global Autodesk Commerce Classification Scheme (ACCS).

The ACCS would provide a comprehensive, hierarchical classification of all products and services of interest to different classes of machinery designers/manufacturers, and would therefore be the framework for publishing information on vendors/service providers. Each part/service would be further defined by an exhaustive set of industrial parameters, or descriptors. This would enable a visitor to parametrically search for any part/service by a precise combination of attributes relevant to him. An initial framework of 65 product groups and 20 services was prepared and submitted to Autodesk
