Business Needs

The client wanted to develop a Tank Configurator, remove the current time consuming manual practice of designing the model as well as decrease quotation time. They needed to develop an interactive Configurator, which was user friendly as well as having all the possible options available according to their needs.

Challenges

  • Time consuming designing development cycle.
  • Inaccurate and lengthy quotation process due to higher customization.
  • A constant fear of losing orders due unnecessarily elongated engineering lead times.
  • Incorporating maximum possible options in the master model to reduce the designing time.

Our Solutions & Approach

Created pressure tank configurator using DrvieWorks for accurate quoting and automate design of manufacturing drawings.

Design Automation engineers at Hitech understood the need to fasten the process of custom model creation of the pressure vessel and its accessories. After analyzing the need based designing of custom tanks, Hitech Design Automation Experts suggested to develop base frame models in SolidWorks and implement DriveWorks and automate the custom tank modeling and reduce time.

  • Project team developed master models of the process tanks and captured all major design features/specifications were captured to facilitate customization at later stages.
  • The sole focus of the team was to eliminate time delays and enable generating a range of different pressure vessel designs as per ASME standards.
  • DriveWorks Configurator allowed the customers to select custom accessories, mountings and features of the tank while providing accurate and instant quotes.
  • Once the final design was configured, screen would display BOM documents and a copy of it would be emailed to the client which will be validated only after their confirmation.
  • Validation would initiate the manufacturing order by sending manufacturing drawings to shop floor as per the selected configuration.
