Time savings in the reuse of data with CAD/part separation in Teamcenter following Nextage’s advice
Before implementing Teamcenter with NVP, Svanehøj’s designers did not have a united way of working. Now work is more streamlined which increases productivity and makes it easier to introduce new members to the team.
Svanehøj worked with 1 design: 1 part. With the new data model in NVP, one design can have any number of parts. When a design is used in multiple parts Svanehøj’s designers do not have to update as many designs as before if a change is done. This way of working is more flexible, more structured, and the engineers work as a team in order to reuse data.
The same goes for projects where instead of creating multiple drawings for different projects, one drawing can point to several projects. If a drawing is revised, all projects connected to that drawing are updated simultaneously once the drawing is amended.
The time saving for the design engineers and the project team as well as the control over revisions was significantly increased by this way of working.
Time saved also by connecting variants to parts
Svanehøj also works with separated variants to parts. From working with one drawing per variant, they now work with basic geometric design shapes to which they can add variants such as different material, color, capacity, or accessory.
“We are growing and needed to streamline ourselves to work smarter. We are not isolated but work in connection with others and the world. The world is getting more complicated and we move with it”, says Susannah Lund.
