What is it all about? - June 2011

I ett telefonsamtal i veckan med Leon Lauritsen på Minerva i Danmark talar vi om att man i varje samtal där begreppet "open source" förekommer, först behöver enas om vad det betyder. Leon är representant för Aras Innovator (PLM) som använder uttrycket Enterprise Open Source om sin produkt. Han säger också att open source-budskapet ibland gör kunderna oroliga. Att köpa eller hyra ett program är liksom enkelt. Men när det handlar om open source så blir affärsmodellen betraktad från alla håll den också, inte bara själva produkten som kan komma att användas. Och det är klart att det inte är så dumt att syna sina affärspartners oavsett om det handlar om ett köp, hyra eller "open source-användning". Men inget säger egentligen att det skulle vara helt tryggt att köpa och hyra eller helt otryggt att ta hem en vara "open source"? Det handlar kanske mera om att vänja sig vid modellen. Det menar i alla fall de som jobbar med "open source".

Imagine an organisation with thousands of products broken down into tens of thousands of parts. Now consider their drawings repository, all tagged with non-uniform descriptions and part numbers, often shared across several departments and offices. What a nightmare! How do they find a specific part in a hurry? Hope the description was entered intuitively? Rely on the accuracy of the part number? What about duplicates – aren’t they costly and confusing? ShapeSpace solves the problem. Shape-Space is a unique 3D search engine which enables you to re-organise, re-catalogue and eradicate duplicates in your massive drawings archive in hours.

Eureka - The Site for Engineering Design - March 2011

Because design engineers often lack browse and search capabilities, the business of finding a part within a large component library can be complex and time consuming, especially when the name or part number is unknown. Naturally, this problem tends to make finding and reusing existing parts extremely difficult. A solution to this problem is available in the form of ShapeSpace, a 3D shape search technology provides engineering companies with a comprehensive 3D CAD search tool.

Control valve manufacturer Bifold wanted to drive changes in their manufacturing processes which would cut costs and deliver measurable improvements in reliability and performance. Using ShapeSpace 3D search technology to search their entire part reference library and identify all parts manufactured from the same raw material, Bifold were very quickly able to consolidate manufacturing processes and improve efficiencies. “As well as being leaner, greener and more efficient, we are able to turn around customer orders in a more reliable timeframe as the majority of parts are always ‘on the shelf’," said Mike Peacock, General Manager at Bifold.
