  • Automate the design of complex custom products
  • Describe the benefits of design automation: reduced engineering cost, improved quality, faster throughput

Description

Description

If you are interested in automating the design of a custom product, then this is your class. Automation of the custom design process can dramatically reduce engineering costs, reduce throughput time, improve quality, and improve the consistent use of best practices. In this class, we will use a case study—field-erected cooling towers at EvapTech, Inc.—to review the business value and steps of automating design. We'll talk about the business process analysis, how to plan a project, and how to select appropriate technology. The class will cover how to architect a solution, build a team, and implement and roll out the solution. At each step, we will use the real-world example of the EvapTech cooling towers to illustrate the details. The structural design of these complex towers typically takes 150 to 300 man-hours to complete when it is done with a CAD system alone. We will discuss how EvapTech reduced this time to a matter of hours, reducing the cost of engineering while improving quality and responsiveness to the customer.
