 Variant Design and Generation: Best Practices
  • Generic product platform design: Streamline development of a common platform by capturing and managing a generic product structure.
  • Platform CAD structure management: Relate product structure and CAD assembly structure to support efficient modular platform development, visualization and variant generation.
  • Platform analysis and validation: Automate the creation of key design configurations to analyze and validate. Rapidly visualize and identify design issues in a digital mock-up; track and resolve interferences.
  • Platform visualization: Utilize actual 3D virtual representations of the product for internal design, validation, manufacturing planning, service and other critical activities.
