Many companies use Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) ''AS-IS'' for their Product Development Process (PDP). In reality, Product based / Process based tasks are needed frequently and this is time consuming and non-productive. This could be addressed by developing a Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) add-on customized application to enhance design productivity, reduce user intervention, and/or prevent design errors. Also, this significantly increases Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) efficiency and adoption, thus maximizing your Creo utilization.
CADOpt provides Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) add-on application development services (using Creo API's like Toolkit, JLink, WebLink, VB) for all your design, tooling, etc related engineering process specific needs. Below are few applications developed for many companies, who have been using these for many years and the same has been tested, proven and error free...
ADVFabPartReport is an add-on application developed for Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) that automatically breaks down the Bills of Materials (BOM) details of a Fabricated Part(which is an assembly of smaller parts/pieces) into its individual pieces. The attributes of the BOM table (like Item No, Quantity, etc) can be either pulled from the Top Level Assembly or can be extracted from within the individual pieces/parts themselves and displays the relevant attribute details in the Drawing views of the respective parts/pieces.
Works with Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) Base (Foundation) Licenses
One-click solution that automatically determines the required attributes and displays in the respective Drawing view
Any later Changes/Updates will be recalculated and incorporated easily with a click of button
Works in conjunction with PTC's Windchill/PDMLink, or Intralink
Speed - One click solution to propagate the necessary details
Error Free - Eliminates errors that can be otherwise caused by multiple interfaces including typos, read errors, comparison errors, etc.
Enhanced User Productivity - Eliminate Designer/Creo User's non-productive (manual entries) activities, saving significant time
Standardization - Standardization of Process as per company standards and maintains uniformity across the engineering functions
Simplify tasks - BOM details no longer has to be created manually referring to Top Level Assembly to Part Drawings
ROI - quick Return on Investment (ROI) considering the significant time savings and reduced ECN's
