The challenge that companies are faced with in terms of saving costs and bringing innovative products to the market before the competition does requires targeted product development from the very beginning. The use of virtual simulation and analysis programs enables the analysis and determination of feasibility of design and manufacturing concepts even at the very early stages of development. This way, problem areas can be identified and corrected early on to avoid subsequent costly change cycles.
Interdepartmental tolerance management is a decisive key in optimizing product quality.
And this is exactly what the software products for tolerance management by DCS (Dimensional Control System) support.
The 3DCS Variation Analyst Suite supports the realistic analysis and simulation of virtual prototypes in terms of their functional safety. Under consideration of joining and assembly processes, manufacturing processes can be visualized and examined with the target.
Knowledge of the expected process variations and their main contributors offers the possibility to optimize product quality as early as possible and in a target-oriented manner and to reduce product costs.
