Business Needs

  • Improvise functionalities of existing DriveWorks configurator and streamline logical rules and output models
  • Enhance overall UI in terms of interactivity, responsiveness and 3D preview of products


The major challenge was to create complex 3D models as all design and product inputs were in ESAM format. As a result, the model’s interactivity was low and it was extremely time consuming for the team to develop master 3D models within stipulated timelines.

  • Simultaneously, the team also worked to enhance the UI of configurator that was already developed to ensure that the project lifecycle was optimized by
    • Rewriting logical rules for design customization
    • Redefining constraints and variables to ensure model versatility
    • Adding interactivity to the 3D preview
  • A final configurator with enhanced UI was developed and embedded with client’s sales site
