SEMA Cuts Project Runtimes 30% With CoCreate OneSpace Suite

Short delivery time is number one competitive factor in mechanical engineering

FORT COLLINS, Colo. and SINDELFINGEN, Germany, Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- CoCreate Software Inc., a leading provider of 3rd generation PLM software applications for high-tech electronics and machinery, today announced that SEMA Maschinenbau GmbH has moved its entire development process to the CoCreate OneSpace Suite.

Based in Traunkirchen, Austria, the international manufacturer of innovative metal-cutting machine tools uses CoCreate OneSpace Modeling, CoCreate OneSpace Model Manager, the add-on module FE Analysis for CoCreate OneSpace Modeling, as well as SolidPower, a standard parts library from CoCreate's certified partner TECHSOFT.

With the CoCreate Engineering environment established at SEMA, the company has significantly improved production levels. Just one year ago, SEMA Maschinenbau projected an average of approximately one year to take an order from receipt to delivery. Delivery today now takes only 8 months.

"What used to be a very short project runtime is now what our clients have come to expect," says Martin Spiessberger, Design Manager at SEMA. "To meet those deadlines, we use large teams working simultaneously on one design. For that approach to succeed, CoCreate OneSpace Model Manager must integrate external engineering firms into our projects without any problems."

Engineers frequently copy the models, components, and parts managed in OneSpace Model Manager and adapt them for new projects. In fact, Spiessberger estimates that up to 80% of the company's parts can be reused directly or with only slight adjustments.

While OneSpace Model Manager ensures parts are easy to find and track, SEMA particularly benefits from the Dynamic Modeling approach to product design in OneSpace Modeling, which makes it easy to rework those existing models.

"While our clients expect ever shorter project runtimes, their machinery is becoming increasingly complex, and the procurement of parts gets more and more time consuming," says Spiessberger. "Thanks to the CoCreate OneSpace Suite, we can act quickly and flexibly to meet customer requirements. The average 30% shorter project runtimes would not have been possible without the CoCreate OneSpace Suite."
