How to Manage Design Complexity within Tight Delivery Schedules

SOLIDWORKS® and 3DEXPERIENCE® Works Simulation tools enable collaboration, speed design cycle turnaround, and reduce the need for physical prototypes


Industrial equipment buyers continually seek machines that perform progressively more complex functions, which means equipment manufacturers must design and test a wide variety of machinery while meeting tight delivery schedules at minimal cost.

For example, engineering managers at Resemin, a mine drilling equipment manufacturer, take advantage of the lightweight visualization and collaboration capabilities on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to review the latest CAD and simulation data to guide improvements and approve final revisions. "We've been using SOLIDWORKS to develop products for more than 10 years. This has enhanced our capabilities in designing machines and marketing them with a more collaborative environment in the company," says Engineering Manager Fernando Diaz. "In that time, we've gone from manufacturing three to four machines a year to more than 130."

Another example is water jet cutting machine manufacturer OMAX, which uses the Structural Performance Engineer role in the 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio of simulation solutions to enable its engineers to focus more on engineering by automating redundant and unproductive tasks. In addition, key stakeholders at OMAX easily review structural performance data on a web browser and seamlessly collaborate within the fully connected 3DEXPERIENCE environment, which increases productivity significantly, thereby shrinking design cycles.
