With the ever-increasing need to produce better products more quickly and at a lower cost, product design teams demand innovative simulation technologies to understand how a product will perform in before parts are made. The Computer-Aided Engineering industry is therefore one of the fastest going segments, but these tools also fall under the same scrutiny – they must be fast and easy to use. Engineers can’t wait days or even weeks for analyses to be performed before receiving the information they need. For example, tolerance analyses can provide valuable information about the probability of having designs that work using existing manufacturing capabilities as well as help evaluate different design options. But as tasks typically performed near the end of the design cycle with the aid of spreadsheets, their value is too limiting.
Sigmetrix, a company dedicated to helping customers produce better products through mechanical variation management, offers software tools that work directly with the design models, including embedded tolerance data when available, to provide design teams necessary information early in the design process. As part of our Technology Leader Profile series, Digital Engineering spoke with James Stoddard, president of Sigmetrix, about the value of this approach to tolerance analysis.
