CAD MANAGEMENT

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

Make sure you’re getting the most out of Solid Solutions & SOLIDWORKS with our CAD Management services. This range of services is designed to improve your skills, increase efficiency and deliver return on investment.

What is CAD Management?

Software has become a key part of any organisation's operational abilities and the key to success in the modern world is proper management of those virtual processes and systems. We often find customers whose software deployment is not optimised for their requirements, and by making simple changes it is possible to deliver massive time savings and efficiencies to their business. The team should always be considered as part of the business process and ensuring they are appropriately skilled is just as important as the mechanics of the software themselves.

Through years of experience the CAD Management services below have been put together to enable our customers by accelerating their business processes, helping them achieve their goals.

Who are the Customer Development Team?

The Customer Development Team exist to help our customers achieve Excellence. The three team leaders had different industry backgrounds before they moved in to SOLIDWORKS CAD which, combined with the countless number of customers they have engaged with since then, gives them a breadth of experience which is shared throughout our team. The combined experience allows Customer Development Team members to transform our customers’ businesses with the insights they provide.

CAD Managers have a diverse range of responsibilities and this session covers an equally wide range of content and topics.

Large Assembly Assist

SOLIDWORKS is a great tool for constructing large complex assemblies, enabling you to validate your new design with ease. However, over time, and with bad practice, assemblies can start to slow down. Why is this?

In this seminar style session we look at what can contribute to an assembly slowing down and how to reduce time creating large assembly drawings.

Along with this we give best practice advice on standard libraries, imported parts and look at which SOLIDWORKS options will speed up your work with large assembly models.

Technical Audit & Roadmap

This service focuses on your design team and asks questions like; Are they using the correct tools and features for your industry? Are they following your chosen work flow?

In this interview style session we converse with your engineers to understand exactly what needs to be achieved with SOLIDWORKS, understanding your design process from A - Z. Then advise on best practices and work flow to allow them to design more efficiently. A number of small changes to your process can drastically reduce the overall time to market.

The Strategic Value Assessment (SVA) is a two stage evaluation of your business processes. The assessment enables us to understand our Critical Business Issues (CBI) so our consultants can make recommendations to maximise your success in your business sector.

We work with Executive Management to run discovery sessions with key employees to unearth bottlenecks and poor procedures that delay time to market, cause unnecessary costs and reduced margins. The findings and recommendations are presented back to Executive Management, where road-maps and next actions are discussed in detail.

This process has been known to identify over £250k worth of inefficiency (per. annum) within some medium sized customers. What are the problems you live with really costing you? Are you even aware of the problem?

Health Check

Your company has invested in SOLIDWORKS software and training, but is your hardware up to the job in hand and are you using the best work flow?

This session reports on the hardware you are using to run SOLIDWORKS, offering advice to optimize its set up and makes recommendations where it falls short. We also look at your design workflow, offering quick fix advice to improve efficiencies to reduce time to market.

If your team report SOLIDWORKS ‘crashing’ or ‘performance’ issues related to speed or graphics this service helps to prove that your hardware either is or is not at fault.
