Understanding a CAD Data Collaboration Process

CAD Collaboration Process

Manufacturers are exchanging thousands of models per month. For a successful partnership, it is imperative that we immerse ourselves in your process and get answers to questions such as the following: 

  • Are the designers and analysts in your organization getting the right data?
  • Are designers and analysts receiving the right versions of the data?
  • How long do engineers wait to receive data and under what time constraints?
  • Is the data set in the right format and if not, how much rework or quality analysis is required?
  • Should designers and analysts compare or verify the received data to ensure data integrity?
  • How usable is the data and what percentage of the data is re-mastered for downstream use?
  • Should recipients cross-check received data for unauthorized changes?
