Knowledge Re-Use

Improve Productivity and Reduce Cost through Design Re-Use

Too many engineering projects incur excessive rework because you do not realize that a current engineering problem has already been solved. Frequently, companies are unaware that existing knowledge – parts, products and processes – can be used in new projects.

Savings from maximizing part re-use can extend across multiple domains and their related processes, including part design, inspection, engineering analysis, engineering change orders, workflow, NC programming, documentation, shop floor instructions, sourcing, resource planning, assembly instructions, manufacturing, spare part management and many other functions.

NX CAD Re-Use Library

NX Re-use Library

NX gives you a common repository for locating re-usable knowledge on an enterprise basis, providing an extensible library of knowledge for re-use at your fingertips: re-usable designs, standard parts, design features and product templates. You can quickly locate what you need and drag-and-drop the object into your design.
