Forecasting accessibility issues of a mechanical assembly within 3D Digital Mock-up during the early stages of the engineering design will prevent the project from costly bottlenecks later. Documenting maintenance feasibility and manufacturing processes are no more internal requirements only but also customers requirements whatever their industrial field is. Studying Mounting and Dismounting activities serves both the Time to Market and Service Quality criteria of any industrial good. DPM Path Planner provide tools for better addressing these activities thanks to automatic collision free motion and path planning. The product workbench provides highly-efficient path planning commands for collision-free path planning to facilitate design, serviceability and manufacturability studies resulting in time savings due to faster computation times and improved quality of the planned path.
Automatic creation of Move activities speeds assembly planning
Reuse of existing Move activities for design changes speeds computation of existing Move activities for revised products and environments
Path optimization shortens Move activities to speed assembly.
Turn hours in second for finding a collision-free path Compatible with the swept volume feature of DPM Compatible with Human builder
Controls of the Degrees of Freedom Dynamic collision checking to control the quality of the path
