Remote Production 101: Improve Dimensional Quality

Whether your team is building a new plant or trying to improve an existing one, manufacturers across the country are faced with numerous remote work challenges. How do you keep production moving while working from a home office? In this webinar watch Curtis DeSaele, Director of Technology at Geometric Solutions, demonstrate:

-The negative effects of poor dimensional quality
-How to virtually simulate dimensional quality
-The value and ROI of upfront simulation
-How to leverage MBQ/PMI data

What is Dimensional Quality?

When it comes to product quality, dimensional variations are common contributors to product failures and recalls. After a design is complete and prototypes are ordered, many companies find that not all pieces fit or function well together. Manufacturers often order hundreds of prototypes just to get 1 or 2 working models. When these models fail, it can be difficult to understand what the point of error is. As a result, prototype phases are often lengthy, expensive, and inefficient.

What is Dimensional Variation Analysis (VSA)?

Variation Analysis software can perform 3D tolerance analysis to predict the combined variation of the parts produced, the process used to put them together, and the variables of usage in the operating theatre.

By simulating manufacturing and assembly processes, Variation Analysis predicts the amounts and causes of variation and helps reduce negative impacts on cost, the quality of product dimensions, and time-to-market. Using kinematic functions with Variation Analysis software, you can actuate parts to determine if everything “lines up” allowing functions to be properly executed.

Did we mention the best part? Variation Analysis software can be used from any remote work location. So, if social distancing is keeping you off the plant floor where you are unable to access prototypes, consider up-front simulation through VSA.
