Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
Explore the key areas of this solution.
Enable your design team to discover machine design innovations up to three times faster. Transform 2D drawing content into integral, functional, modifiable models in the design solution.
Insure full design compatibility with third-party solution providers, using multi-format data to build complete digital mockups. Load massive assemblies with even tens of thousands of components in seconds, to perform customer design validation.
Improve machine quality by integrating real-time information between electrical, mechanical and control systems designers. Build cable layouts and connect wires to devices, synchronizing them in real-time with the electrical schematic.
Leverage customer-driven and machine product line specif. Improve quality while dramatically compressing the schedule, leveraging mechatronics functional models and reducing design iterations.
Solve complex design challenges to reduce weight and increase mechanical properties by building designs that take advantage of additive manufacturing technology. Move directly from model to prototype part to shorten concept development.
Develop robust machine design solutions by insuring compliance with company and project-specific design requirements. Use design requirements, PMI data and DFM tools to address common manufacturing processes and design out excess costs.
Reduce engineering cost by consistently leveraging common parts and designing from enterprise-wide data libraries. Common parts reduce operations cost while consistent design approaches help manufacturing manage production variability.
Visualize and validate program non-geometric data easily within the machine design, enabling the engineer to make more informed decisions. Oversee progress, manage risks, resolve impacts, and formulate hundreds of decisions.
Leverage multi-discipline simulation tools early in the machine design phase to quickly iterate the optimal solution. Allow less-experienced engineers to evaluate concepts as the design evolves and before use cases become more complex.
Manage hundreds of engineering changes for complex machines and processes in a structured BOM. Execute custom machinery releases using processes that ensure alignment with customer requirements and consistent BOM structure.
Reduce machine development and delivery time with industry-leading best practices, process support and examples of how to speed machinery design software deployment. Increase the quality through integration of electrical CAD and mechatronics design elements.
Industrial machinery manufacturers find themselves facing an increasingly challenging business climate – new requirements, such as demand for more flexible machine designs, as well as the need for machines that can be easily integrated into existing plants. Increasing automation content, global competition, market demands and regulatory mandates require industrial machinery companies to innovate their products.
Industrial machinery manufacturers must be able to design, engineer and commission machines virtually in order to optimize performance, improve quality and maximize margins. This requires tools that improve the speed of the design process, increase collaboration across engineering domains, and provide advanced simulation capabilities.
Give your design teams the power, versatility, and flexibility to solve your toughest machine design challenges with an integrated set of tools that preserve data integrity and design intent throughout the process. Leverage advanced tools for modeling and visualization of complex assemblies, and align the electrical system domain with mechanical tools. Extend simulation analysis through addition of mechatronics design and demonstrate machine function.
Our Next Generation Machine Design solution provides an integrated view of how improvements to design, engineering simulation and manufacturing decisions can impact the final machine solution. The machine design process can be modularized to dramatically improve reuse.
