Geometric launches DFMPro for NX

Geometric Limited (BSE: 532312, NSE: GEOMETRIC), announced the launch of its automated design for manufacturability solution, DFMPro® for NX™ software, Siemens PLM Software’s solution for integrated computer-aided design manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE).

Today, organizations are striving to create innovative products and need to get them to the market faster, within cost targets and with better quality. Issues related to product delays as well as cost and quality need to be detected early in the product development cycle as changes in later stages have an exponentially higher impact on time and cost. Geometric’s award-winning DFMPro product is a unique solution that identifies and fixes these issues at the design stage itself. DFMPro comes with global best practices in the area of manufacturability and assembly, along with a powerful framework to add an organization’s in-house best practices. This allows design engineers to save time on design reviews and rework, and utilize such time in creating innovative products.

“Unexpected rework of manufacturability problems is one of the biggest challenges to improving the time-to-market of any product. With the DFMPro tool introducing automated manufacturability checks, our NX users will have a powerful new tool to help ensure they get their designs right the first time. The powerful manufacturability analysis capability provided by DFMPro leverages, complements and augments the already powerful Check-Mate framework inside NX,” said Jim Rusk, Senior Vice President, Product Engineering Software, Siemens PLM Software.

“We are very happy to bring the power of DFMPro to the large NX user base around the globe. Using the DFMPro tool and its framework, we deliver automation solutions to our customers worldwide for their design creation and validation processes. Our automation solutions have helped in achieving at least 60 percent productivity improvement in these processes,” said Venkatesh Jagannath, Senior Vice President, Consulting and Technology at Geometric.

DFMPro provides numerous built-in checks for manufacturing processes like machining, sheet metal, casting, molding and assembly. The standard checks in DFMPro are derived from various handbooks, design guidelines and global best design practices.
 
DFMPro automates manufacturability checks which help design and manufacturing engineers validate the design quickly. It assists identification of design areas which are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture, assemble and service. It works on principle of ‘Right First Time’ by validating manufacturability guidelines right at the design stage. These guidelines can be easily configured as per organizational requirements in form of rules. It facilitates a collaborative design environment by generating reports, which are compact and easy to share. The product received the 2011 Frost & Sullivan Global Enabling Technology Award for Computer-aided Design.
