Due to complexity
of products, we design today, knowledge must be managed globally to fully utilize corporate information and to provide a competitive edge. Unless intellectual properties (IPs) associated with product
life-cycle management (PLM) & development process is captured for someone else in your company to use them again (regularly) at a later date, learning, productivity, and innovation are stifled.
Automation is the process of eliminating repetitive steps in the design cycle.
One of the advantages of design automation is the ability to develop customized functions, specific to established design
practices, or even specific to CAD seed models, design models, or engineering templates.
The application of automation in the design development process is virtually unlimited.
