Products used: SOLIDWORKS Premium


Goals

  • Move from 2D to 3D solid modeling and incorporate leading edge technology
  • Ability to efficiently design better products
  • Reduce inventory carrying costs of raw materials
  • Improve communications with sub-contractors
  • Expand markets, pursue international contracts, increase overall sales

 

Results

  • Selected SOLIDWORKS over CADkey and Inventor based on price, usability (very intuitive & user friendly), quantity/quality of product content as well as service level provided
  • Decision resulted in better product design, functionality and ease of manufacturability. SOLIDWORKS allows you to “visualize” prior to actually building a unit or facility
  • Parametric model easy to work with
  • Substantial savings realized with reduced inventory carrying costs (Due to SOLIDWORKS ability to assist with ordering material more efficiently)
  • Increased productivity in routing related work (piping, plumbing etc). SOLIDWORKS Routing add-on function (included in SOLIDWORKS Premium Package) allows modeling of piping systems to be completed in greater detail with at least 50% less effort 3D capability substantially improved communications with sub-contractors
  • Domestic and international markets rapidly expanding with visual aide of 3D rendering
  • Expecting measurable savings related to recent implementation of SOLIDWORKS Simulation
  • Quality of training, technical support and localized customer service provided by Javelin Technologies, definitely an advantage

 

Basically, SOLIDWORKS helps us get to the final product. Its on-going technical innovations, as well as the level of service provided by Javelin Technologies, will continue to help us grow in the future
