Building Products
Custom design needs and parameters
3D CAD models and manufacturing drawings
SolidWorks, AutoCAD and DriveWorks
CAD Customization & Design Automation
Client Challenges:
  • Delays in responding to customers due to lack of standardized quote generation process.
  • 4-5 days of engineering lead time affecting final product delivery.
  • Fragmented design data transfer between internal teams without a defied process to handle custom orders.
  • Repetitive design tasks leading to additional time consumption and possibilities of errors.

Business Needs

A manufacturer of hollow metal doors and frames from the USA needed to streamline their currently prevailing haphazard means of using paper-based spreadsheets and phone calls to address customer inquiries.

Our Solutions and Approach

Our DriveWorks specialists teamed up with the client’s design engineers to help increase productivity by becoming lean in their ETO (Engineer to Order) manufacturing practices.

  • Our design engineers studied the custom needs and AutoCAD drawings received from the manufacturer and implemented automation tools to reduce engineering lead-time.
  • A team of 30 SolidWorks certified engineers designed locks, accessories and door designs and leveraged their extensive experience to design a custom design template.
  • SQL database to allow easy design data management and reduce possibility of errors inherent in manual repetitive design for customization.
  • Engineers developed final CAD models and manufacturing drawings using DriveWorks Solo and customized logical rules.

Business Impact

The custom 3D CAD modeling and manufacturing drawings enabled faster response to inquiries and reduced capital expenditure with 70,000+ doors designed. The quality improved by 99% and reduced design cycle time by 70% that empowered the manufacturer to improve on cost of production and achieve higher customer satisfaction.
