Our Detailed Engineering Solution to Client:
Stainless Steel furniture manufacturer from UK was venturing into mass customization of food preparation tables. In order to facilitate better buying and configuring experience for customers, the manufacturer needed to develop an online configurator. Hitech Specialists devised a database in DriveWorks and integrated design intelligence for configurator development using DriveWorks Live.
Based on the design details shared by the client, our CAD engineers integrated SolidWorks 3D CAD models with DriveWorks and design the product configurator.
DriveWorks database was used to fetch the data of the customer placing the order which eliminated the use of third party database system and save time.
DriveWorks specialists developed the Sign up page to collect the customer information before entering the online configurator interface to ensure that the privacy of the models and quotes is maintained.
The configurator also shared final 3D files for the best visuals to end-client along with DXF files and detailed BOMs for manufacturers.
Accurate sales quotes were sent to the customer via auto-emails and information collected through Sign Up page.
Our design automation teams, thus, developed DriveWorks database that eliminated using external database and reduced the costs as well as errors. The client was also able to offer security of designs and sales details to his customers.
