While technology advances have led to tremendous improvements in CAD and Simulation capabilities, complex product assembly at most manufacturing facilities still relies on paper-based 2D drawings and remote workstations on the factory floor. However, these processes are becoming a thing of the past. The advent of powerful tablet computers with long-life batteries allows “digital native” shop floor employees to interact directly with lightweight 3D and other data in paperless processes at the point of work, reducing assembly times and improving production quality.
Join Microsoft, Siemens, and Alliant Techsystems (ATK) to learn about ATK’s paradigm-shift to digital manufacturing processes. Driven by the elimination of 2D drawings and the adoption of tablets with 3D JT applications by quality and assembly personnel, ATK has delivered:
- 75% reduction in complex assembly times
- 80% reduction in Coordinate Measurement Machine (CMM) programming time
- Cost savings measured in the hundreds of thousands per project by eliminating the development of 2D models
