Ensure Top CAD Model Quality with CADIQ's Advanced Validation Solutions
For many years, the focus of industrial needs has been on data qualification, with the main objective of ensuring that a model meets all the conditions to be used in applications other than design. While these needs remain predominant, they have gradually been complemented by the identification of interoperability issues and validation of conversion.
Qualification and Validation Needs in CAD
- Geometric and functional defect detection: Identify issues that may disrupt design, simulation, or manufacturing processes.
- Geometric deviation detection: Detect deviations during conversion, migration, or remastering processes.
- Documentation of intentional or unintentional modifications: Document any changes made to the data.
Implementing a CAD Qualification and Validation Solution
Your quality initiative revolves around three key areas:
- Defining quality criteria and methodologies: Establish quality standards and best practices.
- User training on best practices: Educate users on how to ensure data quality.
- Implementation of control and correction tools: Deploy tools to monitor and correct data issues.
CAD Interop can assist you in this process by conducting an audit of your existing interoperability processes, assessing risks, and providing methodological and technical solutions:
- Data analysis: CAD Interop analyses the volume, content, structure, and quality of your data to understand quality challenges and collect representative data samples.
- Needs analysis: CAD Interop conducts surveys with your users to understand and document their different data usage needs. This information will be used to define quality criteria.
- Interop testing: Interoperability tests are performed on the data samples between different systems. These tests help study, analyze, and identify conversion alternatives, parameterization options, and automation, correction, and validation methods. This phase defines conversion, control, and correction methodologies.
- Implementation: Planning and implementing the various phases of production, including development, installation, and training.
The importance of qualification and validation in CAD cannot be underestimated in the current industrial landscape. From the detection of geometric anomalies to the implementation of control tools, several crucial steps require special attention. CAD Interop positions itself as a key partner in this endeavor, bringing unparalleled expertise in auditing, needs analysis, and implementation of solutions.
Whether you are looking to ensure the quality of your models, guarantee their reusability, or maintain their integrity during migrations or conversions, the services and solutions from CAD Interop are perfectly suited to meet your specific needs.
