On-Demand Webinar: Variation Analysis for Medical Device: What Manufacturers Can Learn From the Automotive Industry
It’s all about mitigating risks!
In today’s world of design and manufacturing, three things – product quality, cost, and time to market – determine one’s success over the competition. It is consistently challenging to increase product quality while decreasing cost and time to market.
To maintain a competitive edge, your company needs to employ simulation tools to “peer into the crystal ball’ of manufacturing and predict outcomes. By identifying and mitigating quality risks before tools are cut, or even on the production floor, corporations can improve ROI, meet timing targets, and improve quality.
One way automotive companies mitigate risk is by using Siemens’ Variation Analysis (VSA) for 3D Tolerance Analysis / Stack-ups. Early in the design process, VSA is used to simulate manufacturing and assembly processes which predict both the amounts and causes of dimensional variation. This helps your team determine if there are any risks in dimensional quality in your future product as a result of part design, tolerances, manufacturing, or the assembly process. Then, through simulation, VSA tests proposed solutions to mitigate the risks and eventually eliminate them – all before a single prototype is manufactured.
