Our detailed engineering solution to client:
Hi-Tech automation experts assessed the conventional modus operandi adopted by the client right from order receipt to manufacturing which was highly time-consuming. Owing to our in-depth knowledge of design cycle automation by elimination of repetitive tasks and extensive industry experience, we suggested to implement DriveWorks Pro to diminish response time and take sales experience to a new level with DriveWorks Live.
Our initial assessment of the client’s process suggested the involvement of multiple repetitive tasks for development of custom hose designs.
Sales team was taking long to respond the customer after order placement as quote generation was done manually.
Upon the approval receipt, development of custom manufacturing drawings would start – this entire process consumed about 92% of the total cycle time.
DriveWorks experts at Hi-Tech realized the repetitive process and automated this entire process by capturing the design knowledge to automate the hose design customization.
We captured design knowledge of the master model of hose and used DriveWorks Pro rules to customize the designs further down the line.
It was used with DriveWorks Live and handed over to the client which when used with a browser allowed creation of 3D rendering, 2D manufacturing drawings, and BOMs along with invoice within a minute.
The client was able to eliminate manual process of QCs and overall cycle time by 95%. Also, the client could dedicate resulting saved time for development and design improvements.
