  • NOTE: This slide should be customized to address your individual customer’s situation. This slide covers some generic challenges faced by many customers Many companies experience significant competitive pressure from globalization and low cost competition overseas. To succeed in this market, companies may turn to their product design departments. These departments can play a pivotal role in the success of companies in several ways: New innovative products that can: Create new markets (i.e., SpaceShip One, iPod) Allow for success in commodity markets (i.e., InFocus Projectors) Enable premium pricing (i.e., Trek Bicycles) Fast time to market due to reduced development time and easier manufacturability.  Allowing companies to reduce costs and develop more innovative products for customers. 3) Reduction of product development and product costs Reduced product development costs: less development time, fewer developer resources, fewer ECOs, fewer prototypes Reduced product costs:  less weight, fewer raw materials, more modular design, re-use of parts 4) As quality demands increase, design departments play a larger role, particularly through the use of analysis.
  • SolidWorks is dedicated to helping its customers design better products. We help achieve this goal through several unique capabilities. In order to learn more about each of these categories, click through for details and notes.
  • SolidWorks Office Premium provides all the tools product design teams need to develop great products. SolidWorks Office Premium covers all the critical elements of the design process, including: The ability to build your actual design in the CAD system. Communication tools for sharing designs with your extended team, including people who do not use CAD. Management tools (such as PDM) to help manage parts, assemblies, drawings and any other data associated with designs.  SolidWorks’ PDM tools also facilitate parts re-use and coordination with your extended design team. Presentation tools to showcase designs as photorealistic images. Documentation capabilities to provide design notations for partners, suppliers, customers and manufacturing teams. Verification tools to analyze designs in order to ensure that they meet performance specifications. SolidWorks’ verification tools can also optimize designs. For example, it can minimize materials usage or reduce weight.
  • SolidWorks software is the standard in 3D mechanical design automation software, providing engineers and designers the power to create parts, assemblies and production level drawings. SolidWorks provides unmatched large assembly performance, advanced sheetmetal and surfacing functionality. SolidWorks® Professional is a complete product design solution that includes SolidWorks 3D mechanical design software and a full range of design communication and productivity tools. The added design communication tools allow designers to demonstrate how products look and perform with photorealistic rendering, animations and innovative ways to share your designs via email and/or the Internet. SolidWorks Professional also includes of library of standard parts, productivity enhancement and feature recognition tools. SolidWorks Workgroup PDM™ completes the offering, an easy-to-set-up-and-use product data management (PDM) software that is uniquely adapted to the requirements of SolidWorks workgroups. SolidWorks Premium extends the power of SolidWorks by incorporating d esign validation software specifically tailored for designers and engineers who are not specialists in design validation to help improve product quality by indicating how SolidWorks models will behave before they are built, p owerful physics-based motion simulation to simulate mechanical operations of moving assemblies and the physical forces they generate, and extended productivity tools for routed systems.
  • The goal of this slide is to highlight the broad business advantages of using design validation to help increase companies’ competitiveness, market share, and profitability. Accelerate new product development Bring new products to market faster before the competition does. This is an important factor in volatile industries like electronics/medical where R&D costs are huge and time is of the essence. Design validation helps eliminate/detect design issues early in the product development cycle to meet project delivery timelines and also avoid late delivery penalties. Switch to alternate or cheaper material Raw material costs are increasing worldwide. One of the ways to remain cost competitive is to switch to a cheaper material. Manufacturers also face material specific related issues like manufacturability and regulations (corrosiveness/toxicity). With design validation, it’s very easy and quick to switch to an alternative material and test the product for any changes in performance or quality. Reduce prototype costs Prototyping is expensive and time consuming. By using design validation, users can detect problems early in the design process, saving a significant amount of time and money. Instead of spending time ironing out product problems downstream, with design validation companies can reduce the number of prototype tests to be performed followed by engineering changes. Improve product quality and performance Design validation is a preventive tool that improves overall product quality. Better quality products mean a decrease in warranty costs and an increase in customer satisfaction for repeat business. Product performance can also be enhanced by conducting design optimization for value add. At the product level, design and engineering departments have their own challenges to overcome in order to design better products. These include: Improve complex product designs One of the challenges in designing a better product is the complexity of design requirements. Trends can be analyzed using design validation tools to understand the influence of different design variables like fillet size, thickness, and the number of holes or bolts. Based on the results, adjustments can be made to optimize product performance. Reduce re-design Traditionally, products may be over designed and far less than optimal. Upfront design validation usually leads to passing the prototype test the first time, eliminating costly and time consuming iterations to fix last minute problems. Early problem detection and correction Design validation allows to quickly iterate back and forth in performing conceptual ‘what-if’ studies to evaluate the merit of different ideas, compare alternatives, and filter out design weaknesses. It saves from performing another redesign cycle to arrive at a better design. Greater product quality Have greater confidence in the warranties offered with your products. This can be achieved by improving overall product quality. Design validation can help subject the product through cyclic loading (fatigue) for its life expectancy and avoid unexpected field failures.
  • The Conventional Design Process – Design-related problems are found and fixed late in the design stage, often resulting in weight, cost, manufacturing, and time penalties. Releasing products to market late can have a direct correlation with lost market share. 80% of the performance, cost, and quality of a product are established in the very early stages of the product design process. To shorten the product development cycle, companies need to evaluate and re-orient the process itself so that analysis is performed much earlier in the product development cycle. Design changes are much easier and more economical to make earlier in the design process, ensuring product development is headed in the right direction. Also, rapid feedback of several design possibilities early in the development stage leads to greater freedom to explore innovative ideas. For example, the Mars Rover robotic arm (refer to image) Benefits: Achieved NASA space requirements of strength and weight (light/compact), eliminated time, and cost of building prototypes by using upfront design validation.
  • The COSMOS solutions are focused on helping SolidWorks users introduce design validation early in the product development process. Design validation for all SolidWorks users COSMOS offers an intuitive and easy to use interface for novice users. The learning curve is shorter, as there is no need to learn another GUI. It works in the same manner as SolidWorks software. COSMOS speaks the language of a designer with innovative features like the analysis advisor, smart connectors (bolts, springs etc), and the analysis library. COSMOS provides simplified analysis. Fully integrated within SolidWorks COSMOS leverages the advantage of being fully integrated within SolidWorks. (Example: Owning a printer/fax/copier/scanner separately vs. an all-in-one machine). There is no rework, such as exporting/importing CAD data, applying material properties, or setting up a new analysis every time. All this makes it easy and fast to perform ‘what-if’ design studies earlier in the design process and it helps provides interactive feedback. This is a best in class solution for all analysis needs – COSMOSWorks, COSMOSFloWorks, COSMOSMotion (all discussed in detail in the next slide). Single source solution Local SolidWorks VARs are trained and certified in COSMOS products – they provide a high level of service quality. Pre- and post-sales (professional training and support) are handled locally by the reseller for customer convenience. No hassle in dealing with multiple vendors.
  • SolidWorks offers a full range of design validation tools to address all kinds of analysis needs, including: COSMOSWorks : FEA-based design validation tool helps in studying failures due to stress, excessive deformation, and factor of safety checks. COSMOSMotion : Physics-based motion simulation of moving components. Facilitates design of motors, actuators, gears, and cams. Motion can also help reverse engineer and perform interference checks. COSMOSFloWorks : Studies the flow of any kind of fluid inside or outside the product. Examples: pumps, valves, electronic enclosures, and medical and drug delivery equipment. All three products are fully integrated within SolidWorks. Results from COSMOSMotion and COSMOSFloWorks can be seamlessly used with COSMOSWorks.
  • COSMOSWorks is easy to use AND a power tool with an extensive set of capabilities. Following are the types of analysis that can be performed: Static – Stress analysis Frequency/Buckling – Natural frequency/resonance and mode shapes Thermal – Effect of change in temperature and heat transfer Drop Test – Easy to use drop testing Optimization – Real time shape optimization Fatigue – Cyclic loading to calculate product life Non Linear – Analysis of plastics and rubber products Post Dynamics – Virtual shaker test, vibration analysis
  • 20% of Engineers/Designers time spent looking for documents Companies are growing, becoming more geographically dispersed. Products becoming more complicated – shorter design cycles, more parts, harder to know what affect changing 1 parts has on other assemblies. PDM = Product Data Management PDM is a system that allows your company to consolidate information in a Secure (Electronic) Vault. A system for organizing, controlling and finding all important Engineering information. Information Drawings, Part Models, Assembly Models, QA Documents, Specifications, Letters, Emails, Excel Spreadsheets, Budgets, Bill of Materials, Pictures, Videos etc. Allow sharing with downstream departments such as Purchasing, Manufacturing, Quality Assurance. Allow sharing with Supply Chain and Customers in a secure manner. Controls, secures and facilitates the daily Work-in-Progress (WIP) of your Engineering, R&D and Design Departments. Any information that is part of the design thru manufacturing process can be included such as CAD Files, QA Documents, Quotes, Specifications, Pictures, Video, Letters, Memos, Faxes and Emails.
  • What product companies choose to manage data is typically determined by size and need… Small companies with 1 or two designers who don’t reuse data often find that Windows Explorer file folders are sufficient to manage data. For them, SolidWorks Explorer is the ‘right tool’ that assists them with common tasks such as renaming, copying and packaging design files. As the number of design team members grow, so do the data management needs. When the are 3 or more users working on common projects in one (1) location, it is necessary to help manage changes that occur and notify other team members when changes occur. For these teams of 3 to 10 users who work at a common location and just need automated control and revision management, PDMWorks Workgroup is the correct solution. When the number of designers grows above 10 and/or the design data is being created at multiple locations and optionally there is a desire to automate the approval process, then SolidWorks Enterprise PDM is the solution that best addresses the needs. This is becoming much more common in our global economy. For very large companies who want to automated other areas outside of the engineering groups, such as bidding and RFQ management, our PLM partners provide the correct solutions. PLM may be coupled with PDM in these cases. Our parent corporation, Dassault – specialized in PLM with Enovia Product Line.
  • “ On this slide you can see a few areas as to why EPDM has become so popular. From a fast learning curve via an intuitive GUI, Security at the file & folder level up to individuals & groups, easily understood searching, Vault replication to other locations, workflow to streamline processes, open software for data sharing and finally scalability via MS SQL Server 2008 DB platform.”
  • Key Benefits 1. Fast Return on Investment (ROI) - Fast 2. Secure (Control Employee, Supplier and Client Access) - Secure 3. Enables Design Reuse - Reuse 4. Improve Global Collaboration and Engineering Throughput - Throughput 5. Maintain Compliance with Company and Global Standards - Compliance 6. Share Data (Minimize Errors and Duplicate Data Entry) - Share 7. Ability to Expand - Scalable
  • Speed to market is a significant competitive advantage. A recent McKinsey & Co. study suggests that if a product is late to market by six months, it will have lost up to 33% of its potential gross profit over its life cycle. With little time for error, the design process can be faster and more efficient through the use of 3D printing.
