The ability to shorten cycle times by starting new projects based on existing designs is as necessary as it is legitimate. What company would not benefit from reusing past designs that already embed corporate IP and standards and from sharing this information with multi-disciplinary project stakeholders around the world? Moreover, testing designs in the early design stages eliminates otherwise unforeseeable problems and speeds new product introduction.
Product Engineering facilitates global product development across all engineering disciplines such as mechanical, tubing, piping, tooling and molding that collaborate on designs from different sites around the world. With Advanced Similarity Search capabilities, designers can locate geometric similarities with future designs in existing models for reuse. Simulation capabilities for designers help them to rapidly test their designs before deciding on the one that is most optimal. They have tools to identify, solve and track issues occurring during product development. Intellectual property is protected as suppliers are given need-to-know access to corporate information based on their project roles and responsibilities.
Key capabilities and benefits:
Save time by reusing existing designs.
Enable multi-disciplinary collaboration in a secure environment with IP protection.
Rapid testing with design simulation features.
Identify and monitor issues throughout product development.
Streamline collaboration with partners and suppliers.
