AUTOMATE TO OBTAIN MEASURABLE BENEFITS
Automation solutions' standardized output is always of the same high quality.
Automation solutions reduce errors by standardizing workflows.
Efficiency gains allow users to focus on developing better solutions.
Applications can execute iterative standard tasks much faster than users.
Applications can extract information from models faster than users.
AUTOMATE TO GO BEYOND Creo Parametric
Compared to a previous generation of CAD systems, Creo Parametric IS Automation.
....But Creo Parametric can be improved:
Sometimes Creo Parametric doesn't have info in the format you need, e.g.
Report Structured BOM.
Report External Copy Geometry Parents.
Import/Export Excel/PowerPoint/Word etc.
Many design tasks are extremely repetetive, e.g.
Configuring a model to suit new customer sizing requirements.
Manual re-entry of information into CAD models.
You want to add interactivity into your Engineering Groups intranet site, e.g.
Standard practices website pages can have tools embedded in them.
Buttons to download files from Windchill and assemble them.
AUTOMATE BECAUSE IT HELPS ENGINEERS
Through my years at and after PTC, I have seen hundreds of opportunities for improving companies efficiency with Creo Parametric through simple additional applications. Take a look at the examples section for more ideas.
