FARMINGTON HILLS, MI – Jan. 13, 2009 – EnSuite offers a complete solution for seamless sharing of product knowledge across the enterprise. All departments in the enterprise including purchasing, manufacturing, quality control, packaging, marketing, customer service and engineering can use EnSuite to access product information stored in the master CAD data file. EnSuite eliminates the need of using expensive CAD systems or viewers and translators to access the product information, irrespective of CAD system in which the data was created.
“Product development and manufacturing is a collaborative effort between an enterprise’s internal and external teams. Cross-functional internal teams and the extended supply chain, which frequently is globally dispersed, need to work together to bring products to market. Global competition has forced compressed development schedules and severe cost pressures. In this environment it is critical that all stakeholders have timely and accurate product information at their fingertips,” says Vinay Wagle, V.P. Sales & Marketing for CCE.
Vinay adds, “Most companies now use CAD data as their product master to document all aspects of its design and manufacturing. However, CAD systems are still expensive, hard to use and not suitable for anyone except trained designers. This is further complicated when CAD data may be authored in different CAD systems based on best-in-class application usage. EnSuite provides an elegant and simple-to-use yet powerful solution to access this multi-CAD data in an affordable way.”
EnSuite provides tools to access Bill-Of-Materials of an assembly and to identify relationships among components (parent-child) to assist Purchasing department in make-or-buy decisions. Manufacturing support could access the same assembly and check for interference/clearance among mating parts and also to check individual feature dimensions (fillet radii, draft angles etc.) for manufacturability of part. They can also now compute the shape of the cope and drag of the casting part. Quality Control can access EnSuite’s compare tool for part-2-part, assembly-2-assembly and even point cloud-2-part comparisons for visual verification and QC of designed/manufactured parts. They can also use EnSuite’s redlining feature during design review/collaboration. Sales and Marketing can use EnSuite’s tools for quickly converting 3D CAD designs into illustrations for marketing collaterals, catalogs etc. They also have the opportunity to view the entire part/assembly in digital form much ahead of actual production eliminating the need for physical prototyping, if any. Customer service can leverage EnSuite’s explode assembly feature for accessing assembly instructions for complex 3D model repair on-site. If Packaging needs to determine the package shape/size of a part or assembly, they can do so using EnSuite at the click of a button. Engineering can open/view CAD files from multiple formats, create heterogeneous assemblies, locate individual parts in a complex assembly by simply using the ‘isolate’ tool and lots more. Add to that EnSuite’s capability of handling latest-version files from multiple CAD formats (CATIA V4, V5, SolidWorks, Pro/E, Unigraphics, Parasolid, IGES and STEP) makes it the tool-of-choice for enterprise wide and external supply chain interfacing usage.
The latest EnSuite update will be available to all active subscription license customers as well as to new customers.
