Overcoming the Shortcomings of the Traditional Mechanical Design Work FlowIn traditional product development cycles, the early stages of the design process—including concept development and design analysis—fail to include sources of variation. Tolerance stack-ups are typically performed just prior to production release, and issues related to variation are addressed during verification/validation runs or when problems arise during manufacturing. This reactive design method results in low production yields, field failures and warranty problems. Variational analysis becomes a bottleneck, and the work flow recycles endlessly.
overcomes the shortcomings of this traditional work flow, offering a
fundamentally new approach. Enventive is a pre-CAD mechanical
engineering design system that combines geometric, mathematical, and
kinematic modeling with automated variation analysis, optimization
capabilities, and GD&T simulation to give you new insight into your
A single ECN can end up costing tens of thousands—in some cases even millions—of dollars in tooling changes, scrap and rework, change validation, warranty repairs and recalls. Using Enventive, customers have brought new products to market with zero ECN’s…ahead of schedule.
For any business with an emphasis on quality, reliability and time-to-market, the immediate ROI in time and money spent in design, production and post-production expenditures is obvious. Add to these benefits increased customer satisfaction, an improved standing in the marketplace, ability to focus time and energy on new design...you get the picture.
