Reduce Engineering changes by 30%, using VSA

Track: Partner Sessions

Session Number: 170007
Date: Mon, May 8th, 2017
Time: 2:15 PM - 3:00 PM
Room: 110

Description:

In today’s world of design and manufacturing, three things – product quality, cost, and time to market – determine one’s success over the competition. It’s a constant challenge to increase the first while decreasing the other two.

3D Tolerance Analysis using Siemens PLM Variation Analysis (VSA) provides a powerful dimensional analysis tool used to simulate manufacturing and assembly processes and to predict the amounts and causes of dimensional variation. It helps you determine where to put your costs – into part manufacture, or the assembly process. VSA can help reduce the negative impact of variation on product dimensional quality, cost and time to market before a single prototype is manufactured. 

Advanced features of the tool, will be demonstrated – PMI integration, kinematics, FEA for flexible bending of parts.

Automotive and Aerospace case studies will be discussed, showing the value and ROI of using 3D Tolerance Analysis tools like VSA

These Benefits of 3D Tolerance Analysis will be shown

  • Design flaws eliminated before investment in expensive tooling
  • Variation causes optimized based on actual assembly processes
  • Manufacturing costs lowered by maximizing allowable tolerances
  • Engineering changes decreased by nearly 30 percent
