Fully embedded into Autodesk products Document, Drawing, and file management – ties together all product related information Revision control Easy search and documents retrieval By any attribute (revision, description, part number etc.) Where Used and Composed of queries Full Xref support Full assembly support (external & local parts) Bi-directional Title Block updating Embedded viewer (over 200 formats) SmartDesk Features
Revision Control – Full life cycle management – Automatically maintains design modifications log – Automatically generates revision numbers – Controlled access to files – Ability to view different revisions of the same design – Management of Minor and Major revisions – Quick find and easy retrieval of legacy designs – Facilitate concurrent engineering SmartDesk User Benefits (I) Time spent on design not on data management Significantly reduces error Productivity Improvement
Full X-Ref Support and Assembly Management – Understands the hierarchical structure of assemblies – Understands the relationships between different designs – Ability to extract Bills of Material info. Automatically – Easy Where Used and Composed of queries SmartDesk User Benefits (II) Prevents design contradictions and collisions Knowing in advance what is going to be affected by a change Productivity Improvement
SmartDesk Understands the Hierarchical Structure of Assemblies
Bi-directional Title Block updating – Ability to map to any custom Title Block – Automatically fills-in & update Title Block fields – Keeps TB information consistent and up-to-date – TB Information is filled-in once – eliminate the need to re-type information – TB Information can be viewed even without opening the design file – TB information can be shared with any other ERP/MRP system SmartDesk User Benefits (III) Keeps system integrity Reduces administrative time & typing errors Share TB information with other groups Improves Productivity
SmartDesk User Benefits (IV) Simple and easy to use Plugs into the CAD environment via the in process methodology Windows standard user interface Intuitive and friendly Keeps focus on design - not on data management Reduction of design errors Share information and collaborate with team members
The In Process Methodology Work within the application… Staying in the design environment while managing the data The management simply becomes part of the normal design process. All the key operations such as Search, Locate, and Life Cycle/Revision control have been intuitively designed and are located inside the design application No need to spend extra time re-keying data
Improves Product Innovation and Team Collaboration Reducing Concept creation to Product realization Cycle Times Streamlines and automates work processes and procedures Automatically tracks all of the vast amounts of information required to design, manufacture, and maintain products Adheres to market standards (ISO, MIL, etc.) SmartDesk Organizational Benefits
Rapidly implemented Ready to use out-of-the-box Quick load of legacy data Scalability – a clear and simple migration path to an enterprise information management solution – SmarTeam Bridging islands of information among teams within the enterprise in a secured way SmartDesk Organizational Benefits (cont.)
