All rights reserved Siemens PLM Software Best in Class PACE Framework - for tool makers PressuresActionsCapabilitiesEnablers Price Competition Increase efficiency of tool design Focus on niche markets Offer value added services Formalized design process Automate common tool design tasks Virtually prototype functional operation of tooling Capture tooling design knowledge Centralize and control design information Standardize quotation process CAD with tooling specialized user interface CAD with automated tool design capabilities Libraries of commonly used tooling components Simulation of tooling in manufacturing environment Fast machining capabilities Centralized data management (PDM) CAD Data exchange applications 21 st Century Mold and Die Shop” – Aberdeen Group 1 st area to focus on “The message? Get tooling design as efficient as possible to decrease tooling turnaround times. Then you can differentiate yourself with services”
