CESENA , ITALY , Sept. 22, 2008. ENGINEERING PLM Solutions have confirmed that RuleDesigner PDM v2008, RuleDesigner Configurator v2008 and RuleDesigner document v2008 are available for SolidWorks 2009. Companies using the RuleDesigner technology can take immediate advantage of the speed and productivity enhancements in SolidWorks 2009.
The latest release of SolidWorks is very recent but ENGINEERING PLM Solutions has already ensured that RuleDesigner Suite is ready for SolidWorks 2009.
RuleDesigner Suite has received the status of SolidWorks Solutions Partner product. RuleDesigner is a set of stand-alone yet interoperable solutions to help computer aided design (CAD) users in four different areas: product configuration, part classification, PDM and task automation
The RuleDesigner Suite is a set of PLM applications that, capturing the rules on how company define, design, produce and sell their products, allow CAD users to concentrate effort on their preferred activity: designing innovative and succesful products. RuleDesigner PDM simplifies and automates process and product configuration, attributes and part numbers definitions, vaulting, ECOs and all the repetitive and time consuming tasks, such as drawing, printing, file conversion, PDF creation and more.
Based on the concept of capturing a company's know-how through rules, the RuleDesigner Suite can automate many of the activities that CAD users execute when they design new products. Allowing them to concentrate on the design process itself, rather than spending hours filling in product information, is the primary benefit of RuleDesigner Suite. Users can access the RuleDesigner Suite directly from within the users interface of SolidWorks 2009 3D CAD software.
The modular packaging of RuleDesigner PDM allows companies of any size to benefit from its functionalities. As an example, engineers and designers can use RuleDesigner PDM and SolidWorks to automate the generation of part numbers for each new component, and be driven by a simple user interface in the definition of the attributes that are relevant for specific categories. Company standards can be defined and rules can be set to automate the attributes assignment in order to minimize user input and dramatically reduce the possibilities for mistakes. Part descriptions can be automatically generated by compounding other attributes, ensuring consistency and avoiding the duplication of components under different part-numbers.
