A Smarter Way to Handle Large Assemblies -
To succeed in the competitive world of machine design requires not only powerful, easy-to-use tools for creating large assemblies, but smarter ways of handling the tools, to reduce design time. This presentation focuses on best practices in using the large-assembly tools in SolidWorks 2006 for machine design and their impact on the design cycle. Real-life examples of using the new package in a smarter way in releasing a machine design for manufacturing are shown.
Choosing the Right PDM Tool -
With the large number of PDM systems available today -- from simple check-in and check-out tools to applications handling workflow -- how does a company decide which one is best suited for its operations? This presentation describes the evaluation process followed by Barry-Wehmiller Companies, Inc., in choosing its PDM system. It identifies key criteria for evaluating tools, reports how some current tools measured against these criteria, and recommends a process to follow for finding the right tool.
Implementing SolidWorks Effiectively for Faster ROI -
Many companies upgrade from 2D to 3D design without a detailed plan, resulting in a poor implementation that leaves users on dual systems and the company struggling with costs and falling short of its technical or commercial goals. This case study of Elkay Manufacturing illustrates the right way to implement SolidWorks and its benefits. Topics include typical stumbling blocks such as legacy data, buy-in, cost-cutting, training, and post-implementation maintenance and operational issues.
Getting the best out of Legacy Data Conversion -
When companies move from one CAD tool to another, there are lot of things to think about in order to get the best value out of the effort to convert the legacy data to the new CAD tool. This presentation focuses on the reasons people migrate to newer systems, different approaches for data migration with their advantages and disadvantages, best practices to manage the project for legacy data migration to SolidWorks and ways of cutting the cost of the entire effort.
Accelerated New Product Development for the Medical Equipment and Device Industry-
