The biggest challenge in today’s economy for a new product development company is to stay competitive in pricing. Although companies try all possible ways to reduce the cost, they still face a big challenge in reducing the cost of design changes. It’s understood that a good design makes a good product. Thus, it is important to maintain a high standard of design quality while reducing design time and costs.
However, design changes sometimes occur at a later stage and this always proves very expensive. If you can make the design change decision at an earlier stage, it can result in a product of very high quality and ease of manufacturing. CAD automation provides a powerful mechanism to improve product quality and reduce the cycle time of new product development by automating the design engineering process.
CAD Automation or Knowledge-Based Engineering (KBE) relates to automating the requirements, specifications and rules for a particular design. Almost all CAD software in the market today provide powerful API libraries to interact with their design command through different programming platforms. This programmed design approach helps cut down design time and deliver high quality design output with no human errors. This plays a part in helping companies with competitive pricing.
CAD Automation can be used for automating a specific repetitive task of your design engineering team. Or it can be used to automate the design of complete product range. High-quality design automation can be achieved with a perfect mix of the right programming language, CAD software, database-driven design rules, a web-based user interface and implementation of an efficient costing module. All these together can make an excellent design automation application that can help develop innovative new product ranges at a very low cost.
