In order to address customer inquiries faster and create error-free custom manufacturing drawings, the USA based manufacturer of doors and vanities needed to eliminate repetitive design tasks.
The manufacturer aimed to generate accurate quotes by streamlined and quick approvals of customization attributes for every sales order.
Developed product configurator using Inventor iLogic and Configurator 360 to automatically generate part files, 2D Drawings, BOMs & 3D images.
Design automation experts at Hitech studied the entire process workflow from customer inputs at POS to manufacturing stage to understand internal request flow (IRF). Based on the study, the automation engineers advised the door and vanities manufacturer to implement CAD configurator owing to higher configuration and develop quick sales to engineering cycle.
The total engineering lead time for the manufacturer was reduced from 3-5 days to one hour that lead to higher production units and more profitability. The configurator allowed only permissible design values which reduced the number of iterations and quality checks into one single stage with 100 percent accuracy.
End customer had better sales experience with self-configuration and access to IGES models, STEP files and Inventor, TIFF, JPEGS, etc. through configurator platform across the cycle.
