Over the past several months there have been webcasts on Engineer-To-Order topics. I was able to get the recordings of these sessions and will post them. The focus of the first session is “Frame-Based Positioning” and includes a comparison to “Constraint-Based Positioning. At the end there is a question and answer session that should also be useful.

I thought it was interesting that theses sessions were a called a potlatch. Here is the definition from Wikipedia
“A potlatch is a gift-giving festival and primary economic system practiced by indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast of Canada and United States. This includes Heiltsuk Nation, Haida, Nuxalk, Tlingit, Makah, Tsimshian,Nuu-chah-nulth, Kwakwaka'wakw,and Coast Salish cultures. The word comes from the Chinook Jargon, meaning "to give away" or "a gift"; originally from the Nuu-chah-nulth word p̓ačiƛ, to make a ceremonial gift in a potlatch.”
For someone getting started with ETO these sessions are a nice gift. The person leading the discussion in the first recording is Jon Balgley who works for Autodesk Engineering.
