DIMENSIONAL CONTROL SYSTEMS

Dimensional Control Systems (DCS) is a world class provider of Dimensional Engineering Consulting Services and Software Solutions. DCS is a privately held company established in December of 1994.

DCS focuses on changing the way businesses execute quality assurance by combining engineering methods with software technology and excellent customer service. 

Dimensional Control Systems is a premier Engineering Firm, specializing in the field of Dimensional Engineering. As such, DCS provides two tools, 3DCS and QDM, as well as engineering staffing, training and services.  DCS currently has engineers working within a variety of industries worldwide, supporting a host of OEM and tier suppliers with Software Solutions and Engineering Placement, as well as Engineering Services. 3DCS and QDM solutions are used in many industries, such as automotive, aerospace, energy, household goods, electronics, and industrial machinery, to create robust designs, solve quality and assembly issues before production, and "close the loop" by utilizing actual production data for root cause analysis.

CAA Applications

Value proposition

Dimensional Analysis is used to "drive" the design (both geometry and tolerances) to meet defined quality and cost requirements while meeting  component  manufacturers’ capabilities. 3DCS CAA V5 Based Tolerance  Analysis software offers engineering the opportunity to optimize component tolerances and maximize quality while minimizing costs. The optimal time to complete the variation analysis is as early in the product's lifecycle as possible to make the most impact to the overall design quality. Whether the quality characteristics are for fit, finish / aesthetic properties, or functional requirements, 3DCS can be used to improve the assembly quality.


3DCS Variation Analyst is a scalable, fast, easy to use product that supports Stylist, Perceived Quality, Design, Analysis and Manufacturing Engineers with a variety of capabilities to manage design quality from beginning to end of a product lifecycle. From visualizing the impact of design and manufacturing variation of a product’s perceived quality (fit and finish), to comprehensive in-depth tolerance analysis for identification of critical to quality characteristics, to root-cause analysis of variation problems in production, 3DCS covers the scope of dimensional quality while being seamlessly integrated into the 3DExperience, CATIA V6 and CATIA V5.

SIMULIA AIP/CIP

Value proposition

The 3DCS FEA Compliant Modeler is an add-on module to 3DCS which utilizes Finite Element Methods to accurately simulate variation of compliant parts and assemblies. 3DCS FEA Compliant Modeler simulates compliant part deformation resulting from manufacturing operations such as clamping, welding, unclamping, and force application.

Benefits: Cost avoidance through improved product design
The downstream cost of a design error increases dramatically the longer it goes undetected in the design/manufacturing cycle. Scrap, rework, engineering changes and tooling delays can all add up to cut deeply into profits. 3DCS FEA Compliant Modeler provides the engineering community with an efficient method of evaluating the influence of material deformation during the digital prototype phases. Problem areas can be identified and corrected early in the product development cycle. Optimizing the dimensional integrity improves the robustness of design and processes by maximizing part tolerances, while controlling the dimensional requirements of the entire compliant assembly.

Key Product Features
*Simulate deformation within the virtual assembly process
*Render photo realistic deformation
*Support Monte Carlo, contributor analysis and equation based tolerance analysis
*Support for diagnostic functions including key contributor analysis and Geofactor, available in 3DCS
*Incorporate part deformation resulting from clamping, welding, fastening, gravity, force application and spring-back
*Leverage existing FEM/FEA models to accurately reflect deformable parts
*Easy to learn, intuitive graphical user interface
