KBMAX Combines its Configurator with AutoCAD 2010

Mass Customization Software Automates Engineering and Powers Profits

November 20, 2009 -- Austin, TX -- Citius Corporation, the innovative developer of KBMax, today announced their software integrates with Autodesk AutoCAD 2010 software.   Manufacturers will use AutoCAD 2010 with KBMax to accelerate and improve engineer-to-order design and price quote processes.  More efficient engineering and sales will  lower costs and boost profits.


AutoCAD is one of the world's leading design and documentation platforms.  AutoCAD 2010 includes hundreds of new features, notably improved PDF functionality and parametric constraints.  Autodesk developed the 2010 version to provide the ultimate in engineering power and flexibility.

Citius combined Knowledge Based Engineering and Configurator applications to develop KBMax. This hybrid Knowledge Based Configurator (KBC) software automates all phases of the product design quote cycle.  Repetitive manual tasks in design, production, and sales are all eliminated.  The result lowers operational expenses while adding valuable time for companywide innovation.



Simple inputs into KBMax inputs automatically build product specific drawings and models in AutoCAD 2010.  Those same inputs automatically link to the company knowledge base to produce instant bills of materials and price quotes. Engineering and sales departments use a seamless platform to meet customer requirements.  Trial users integrating KBMax and AutoCAD 2010 software noticed reductions of 90% in engineer to order design and quote times.

“A few clicks and data inputs into KBMax will design complex 2D models in minutes as opposed to days.”

“For 27 years, Autodesk has continued to bring new features and functionality to the AutoCAD platform, and together with partners like Citius, we’re helping drive engineering innovation,” said Jim Quanci, director, Autodesk Developer Network. “We hope the integration of KBMax with AutoCAD 2010 will help our users spend less time on current product customization and more time on new product development.”


“Our KBMax configurator provides tremendous efficiency benefits to the AutoCAD community.” said Citius Chief Technical Officer Kevin Bennett.  “A few clicks and data inputs into KBMax will design complex 2D models in minutes as opposed to days.  Citius also made sure that KBMax enhances the new AutoCAD 2010 features, especially the parametric functionality.”

 

KBMax is a recognized Autodesk Partner Product and will be exhibiting at the 2009 Autodesk University in Las Vegas.  Citius plans to integrate KBMax with Autodesk Inventor  by the end of 2009.  Please visit www.citiuscorporation.com for more information and a guided demo of KBMax.
