Spring has Sprung?

While it doesn't quite feel it around here, Spring has Sprung. That means it's time to start thinking about the beach, vacations and getting lean. But, that can also apply to your businesses as well. Direct CAD can easily fit into your Lean Manufacturing environment by helping you save time --and in the end money-- when it comes to designing and fixing 

In fact, findings by Lifecycle Insights in our eBook: Working with 3D Models: The Contract Manufacturer's Key to Profitable Growth showed that in general, 66% of engineers say they spend at least 4 hours a week fixing broken geometry. That's a lot of time wasted--not very lean at all. 

Maybe you should give it a read while you're spending time on the bike or treadmill getting ready for the summer and help your company get leaner at the same time.

[Infographic] A Quick Look at Improving Your DPD Audit Process

Boeing was one of the aerospace leaders to define Digital Product Definition (DPD) standards for suppliers. Today Boeing is not alone as other OEMs such as Gulfstream, Lockheed, etc., offer DPD guideline. Even suppliers themselves have taken the lead using DPD standards to validate their CAD process from model translation assurance to revision control to order changes and archiving and storage.

Still, though, just like cramming for a test [come on, we've all done it] passing a DPD audit is a struggle as along the way there are many steps that can be overlooked and turned into missteps if you aren't prepared.
