The Client: Improving the engineering, prototyping and manufacturing lead time for furniture designed for retail stores and expedite the delivery to customers.
Industry: Furniture Manufacturing
Furniture manufacturers operating in retail industry are often faced with a challenge of developing and delivering customized furniture designed for retail stores of different architecture setting. It is important for manufacturers to equip themselves with right technologies and processes, to boost up the design prototyping and manufacturing time, minimize cost and ensure timely delivery of products to end customers.
While Design for Manufacturability (DFM) strategy is helpful in bringing down the development schedule and reduce material wastage, there is an increasing need of streamlining the design process as per the manufacturing capabilities.
A Europe based furniture and equipment manufacturer for retail stores collaborated with CAD Outsourcing Services to seek a similar solution to bring down lead times by improving the design and manufacturing processes and thereby deliver the products to customers faster. Enlisted are some of the prime challenges the client was facing-
CAD Outsourcing Services performed a preliminary study on the design and manufacturing capabilities of the client through several onsite visits and developed a process to achieve the objectives. The 2D workflow was first converted to 3D to enhance the product visualization and help engineers and shop floor personnel to understand design intent clearly. Utilizing an experienced team of mechanical engineers, CAD Outsourcing Services implemented automation in several areas of the design process aligned as per the manufacturing capabilities. The approach helped client in implementing the DFM strategy and gain benefits of reducing the manufacturing lead time while reducing the wastage. The team also provided a defect tracking and process quality checks to strengthen and boost the product delivery process.
