Purchase and Finance

To succeed in the tough international competition, where today's manufacturing companies are operating, all the features of the company must be on top.

Here the products are created, here they are tailored for different customers and purposes and here is the new thinking that creates competitiveness and profitability. Development engineers are key people at the company. It is their curiosity, ideas and collective experiences that lay the foundation for new, smarter products – products that deliver success both in sales and in production.

With this background, as most business leaders agree, it is strange to note that many development engineers still are fully employed with relatively unqualified tasks. Too many people are busy with repetitive or administrative tasks daily, which reduces workload and creativity. You will lose important brain power in the development team.

With relatively limited efforts, administration can be minimized and the department is given the opportunity to work smarter. New working methods, more modularization, standardization and automation can make an infinite difference and free up the innovative ability that is so central to a manufacturing company. When engineers get used to what they do best – develop new products and fine-tune existing ones – the company will quickly reach its full potential in the market and compete on brand new terms.

 

Welcome to Cadcraft’s world of possibilities!

 

CAD and Construction

In manufacturing companies, the CAD system is central. This is where the products develop and innovations take shape. But also a CAD system can work in different ways and support different ways of working. It is important that you have the right system, with the right functionality, for your particular business. Cadcraft helps you find the methodologies that make you take advantage of the system, as well as create the smart shortcuts that give you extra speed and competitiveness. And of course, we keep your knowledge constantly updated through ongoing training efforts.

 

Product Data Management, PDM

Very few development engineers have chosen their job with the idea “it will be fun to administer drawings”. Therefore, a smart and advanced program should take care of that work. Product Data Management, or PDM, can take place on many different levels, and each company should carefully think about the benefits that can be achieved by automating this management. Cadcraft shows you how.

Product Configuration

Why reinvent the wheel over and over? Product Configuration allows you to quickly and easily customize your products according to the customer’s specific dimensions, requirements and requests. It has never been easier to create customized products nor gone faster or become more accurate when you offer.
Cadcraft have been working on Product Configuration for almost 30 years. We have satisfied customers who know that even a major investment in a Product Configurator pays off quickly and easily!

 

Calculation

Does my construction hold the force that affects it? Counting on strength, known as FEM analysis, is a frequent task for the development engineer. There are more aspects that may require qualified calculations when new products take shape, such as thermodynamics, streams and flows. Cadcraft will help you to get started with advanced computing programs and find shortcuts to smarter and more advanced analyzes.

 

Standardization

It’s good to have 48 variants of nuts to choose from, but your work is getting faster and becomes more efficient if you only have ten. This will also make it easier for the production department to stock. This is the grounded thoughts behind standardization. By working with limited, but relevant and sufficient choices and constantly ensuring that components and modules are kept up to date and current, smooth workflows are created both in the design department and in the production.
Cadcraft will help you identify the possibilities of standardization.
