Siemens PLM Software
Why attend this hands on workshop?
Today, everyone is aiming to design and produce higher-quality and more complex products faster than ever before. This pressure to create better, smarter and faster puts significant pressure on the Engineering organization.The current design process is often fragmented, with loose connections between the different design disciplines. As the complexity of products has increased substantially, so has the complexity of parts which must be manufactured.
Improving product design and manufacturing productivity is imperative so that Engineering can cope with challenges such as:
Meeting project schedules – Delivering new products on time.
Engineering is often faced with challenges to schedules due to rework
Quality management – Getting it right first time.
Quality issues often ‘make or break’ a product’s viability and ultimate success in the marketplace.
Controlling production costs – Difficulty or mistakes during manufacturing.
The ‘manufacturability’ of a part also drastically impacts production costs. Rework leads to more scrap product and, of course, potentially significant cost overruns.
Improving innovation – This rework not only costs time and money but it ‘costs’ manpower and can directly limit innovative thinking.
What you will learn?
PDQ involves upstream manufacturability validation that helps identify designs that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture. Siemens NX automates and formalizes the design review process for manufacturability. In addition, it provides a mechanism for best practice knowledge capture and reuse for continuous improvement. NX reporting is used to report and color code on many different areas of CAD and PLM, including lifecycle management, part and object information, assemblies and modelling, physical properties and PMI. The reporting is another great tool to help ensure a high quality digital twin.
Who Should Attend?
If you’re a quality engineer, design for manufacturing engineer or an engineer that is interested in cost reductions then this is a must attend event. Ideally engineers with a background in Siemens NX.
