How HCL’s DFX Platform is Bringing in a Seismic Change to Efficient Design and Manufacturing
In an era of constant change and transformation, Aerospace & Defense (A&D) organizations are more focused than ever on incremental innovation and cost reduction as a way to gain competitive edge and drive profitable growth. A&D industry is in the need for constant innovation and ageing workforce threatens the highly skilled talent pool and reuse of knowledge. Declining defense budgets and complex global supply chains further put pressures on program costs and time to market.
Faster and Smarter Innovation is now the mantra for organizations who best respond to these challenges through more efficient R&D investment, better design and manufacturing collaboration and increasing visibility into the complex value chain of suppliers.
With new products being launched faster than ever, apart from time to market, the success of a product heavily depends on three key aspects: Quality, Cost and Traceability. For this, design engineers need to have advanced enterprise solutions integrated within the CAD and PLM space, which provide upstream visibility into a products manufacturability health and impact of early design decisions on the cost of the product. Also, there is a need for visibility into a design’s health during each stage in its design phase, to trace critical failures right down to each design revision level.
A&D Organizations are moving towards becoming Model Based Definition (MBD) enterprises by implementing modern solutions that allows to maintain a single source of truth in the form of 3D models. This means, that all manufacturability related information such as GD&T, PMI etc. will reside in 3D models instead of 2D drawings, which allows for design and manufacturing to go hand in hand at every step of product development.
With focus on above key aspects at its core, DFMPro now provides a holistic and multifaceted approach towards solving key business challenges in the shape of a CAD + PLM integrated “Design for Excellence (DFX)” Platform and invites all for an exciting webinar to learn more about its latest offerings.
