Whether it’s creating new design variants, running design checks or batch-processing files, every design team needs to optimise their data and the way they work. Design automation allows companies to remove the waste from their design processes.
Implementing a simple design change without the correct support in place can lead to engineers having to update drawings and documentation, and to perform design checks, which can take hours to complete. This can cause delay to the product innovation and development that companies need as they grow their offering.
Automating designs, tasks and processes allows products to be configured easily, customised intelligently and processed quickly.
Design automation also presents an opportunity to increase the resilience of engineering teams by capturing knowledge and experience required for effective succession planning. The product knowledge gained from years of experience cannot easily be passed on to new starters and is often undocumented. By capturing and applying this information in a company’s designs, key design decisions can be automated and mistakes reduced.
At Symetri we believe that design automation is best achieved when there is a deep understanding of a company’s processes and design techniques. By looking at these areas we are able to advise customers on where and how automation techniques and technologies can be applied to optimise the way our customers work.
Symetri have experience of helping clients to build engineering configurators, automate design checks, automate drawing creation, automate BoM export and automate secondary file format creation.
