Our design automation solutions to client:
The furniture manufacturer for retail food chain stores manufacturing specific set of furniture constantly was facing challenges to customize the designs as per space availability and quoting the price accordingly. Our DriveWorks specialists collaborated with the manufacturer to develop CAD configurator to accelerate the time to market each piece.
Other customized data base was then created for automation of manufacturing drawings, quotes and documentation process.
The sales engineer or any frontend user could simply populate the customized design needs using configurator to quickly send the request to shop floor.
Manufacturer could thus reduce the lead time from traditional 4 to 5 days to one day and design cycle was 70 times faster with enhanced quality. Significant reduction in material scrap during machining was also observed.
