Process automation

How to automate 3D models, document management and the order life cycle using a Technical Configurator

Optimize your engineering resources, probably the most expensive and over exploited of your company. Automate the processes involved in this key department

Tasks being repeated by a team of engineers is a complete waste for a company. While the concept and practices of Lean Manufacturing are widespread in companies, the Lean Engineering, a major factor in being competitive, is not.

Phases of process automation
Data collection

We do not start from any template, everything is customized for you. We have to analyze the target user, the working system and the automation subsequent maintenance. We consider:

  1. Main data of the project
  2. Direct searches in DB tables: ERP, CRM, others
  3. Interactive interface. Live my changes and secured customer intention
  4. We avoid wrong configurations of the model, impossible to make a mistake!
  5. Direct data collection: final price, volume, number of pieces…
  6. Notices of violation of regulations or engineering rules
  7. Language Selector
  8. Live 3D Regeneration
  9. Recording Data Entries: Version Control / Old Purchase Orders


The process that we will be able to control with these data, from the point of view of product engineering and production includes:

  1. Resizing / Optimization of components
  2. Parts/Assembly Replacement
  3. Parts and configuration management via PDM
  4. Product Design Rules
  5. Engineering calculations
  6. Variable management
  7. Lists of materials, quantities, weights
  8. Lists of cuts, profiles, angles
  9. Weld and tolerances listings
  10. Technical Instructions
  11. Management of plans (auto-escalation, auto-positioning, auto-balonado, …)
  12. Technical manuals

Output files

The output files of your automation will be those that you need for a correct manufacture and dispatch:

  1. Manufacturing drawings
  2. Assembly manuals
  3. DXF/DWG unfolded sheet metal
  4. Budget
  5. Order sheets
  6. Material lists
  7. Reports/Technical files
  8. Proposals/Mails/Documents
  9. Link to ERP via XML or BBDD
  10. Assembly, use and maintenance manuals

Are you thinking about hiring an engineers' team?

Make your idea a fact, save costs and time in your product manufacturing or validate your mechanical calculations to avoid manufacturing errors.
