Client Profile.

The client is a leading custom-made storage and pressure tanks manufacturer based out of Netherlands.

Business Need.

The client used Excel spreadsheets to customize design orders for each tank. However, addressing mass communication demands with legacy methods was time consuming and prone to errors. To deal with this challenge, the client had already adopted Autodesk Inventor as the primary CAD tool. But scarcity of skilled resources proficient in CAD design automation, led to iterative design drafting and modeling tasks.

To eliminate repetitive work and increase modeling efficiency, the client was looking for a design automation partner. The expectations from the business partnership were accelerated lead time and higher accuracies in custom 3D models and manufacturing documents.

Challenges.

An assessment of as-is existing sales-to-manufacturing cycle threw up challenges such as:

Solution.

An Inventor iLogic-based product configurator was deployed to accelerate and streamline sales-to-design cycle for each tank. This configurator backed workflow:

Approach.
