Design Reviews – Solutions (Part II)

In a previous post (here ) Matt Sheridan discussed five common challenges customers face when performing design reviews. In this post he discusses how PTC helps companies overcome these common challenges

The five common design-review challenges:–

  1. Reviewing multi-CAD designs
  2. Working with 2D Drawings
  3. Comparing dataset
  4. Organizing and viewing  data types (Word, Excel, PDF)
  5. Integrating MCAD-ECAD information

Visual Work Instructions: What’s the big deal?

Every day, manufacturing engineers face the challenge of ensuring that process plans and work instructions accurately reflect the current engineering design. Paper-based work instructions have been used to disseminate information about various steps of the process. Quite often, these are laminated and hung on the walls in the shop floor. This works well until an Engineering Change Order comes through… Continue reading  on the Creo blog here. Note, this link takes you to the PTC Creo blog at creo.ptc.com Continue reading
