Challenges

  • Design and development of products at several locations worldwide using several CAD systems (eg Catia, Unigraphics)
  • Large number of product interfaces to other vehicle parts
  • Interfaces must be intensively coordinated with customers or other suppliers
  • Analysis of the 3D data by engineers as a basis for development decisions without cost and training-intensive use of 3D CAD software
  • Subsequent processes from tool procurement to assembly require access to CAD data, but employees do not have CAD know-how

Solutions

  • Worldwide use of 3D data in AutoVue facilitates communication and analysis processes. Problems with product interfaces are detected and corrected at an early stage
  • Extensive analysis functions (cuts, fading-out of parts, exploded views) are used to ensure reliable development decisions
  • Integrated use of AutoVue within web conferencing in real-time simplifies communication with customers and suppliers. Deployment in any workplace is possible
  • CAD data can be displayed in numerous formats (Catia, UG, Iges, DXF, etc.) from AutoVue simply by pressing a button, so that different processes in the company can benefit
  • Hardware costs for engineers are 2/3 lower because standard laptops are used instead of CAD workplaces.
  • Training expenditure approximately 10% compared to CAD training and CAD skills are not required
  • Savings of up to 15% on software licenses are expected with Auto Vue
