Tecnomatix Variation Analysis

Warren, Michigan, October 27, 2015 – Learn how Tecnomatix® Variation Analysis predicts and reduces the impact of variation on product dimensional quality.

A tool for reducing the negative impact of variation on quality, cost, and time-to-market, Variation Analysis (formerly VSA) empowers manufacturers with the ability to assess design challenges before physically producing any parts. This digital approach allows engineers to evaluate changes and verify that they will actually fix problems early in the design process when they are less expensive. Using these analytical tools, they can predict the amounts and causes of variation in their manufacturing operations. Such evaluations allow manufacturers to optimize their products and processes, identify critical dimensions and key characteristics, and, perhaps most important, reduce costs while still maintaining critical assembly dimensional specifications.

Curtis DeSaele, director of technology at Geometric Solutions, points out, “The earlier that dimensional quality issues are identified and corrected, the greater the savings. It is estimated that more than two-thirds of the ability to control costs is locked in when the design freeze occurs. For example, take a simple feature such as a hole size. Imagine its impact on profitability when that hole size must be changed once it is cut into steel, versus in CAD.

“Typically, as part of their efforts to reduce cost, companies focus on consolidating manufacturing facilities, outsourcing globally, merging work forces and going green,” he says. “In addition, they look to the supply base for cost reductions, optimization of manufacturing throughput and redesign of products for more efficient use of materials. Moreover, while each of these can be effective cost saving initiatives, based on my 30 years of experience in the industry, I have learned that most companies are not really considering – and in many cases not really aware of – one of their biggest opportunities: dimensional quality, where the cost of poor execution can be substantial.”

To see how Variation Analysis can help shave time and expenses from your production projects, sign up now for Episode 4 of the Simulation Nation 2015 webinar series. During the session, you will discover and discuss the importance of Dimensional Quality and Dimensional Engineering to the manufacturing process. Then the conversation will turn to the powers and capabilities of Tecnomatix® Variation Analysis, including a demonstration. Finally, you will have the chance to apply what you’ve learned to three case studies.

This episode will be held Wednesday, November 11, 2015, 11am EST and will be available OnDemand thereafter.
