3 Product Design Secrets You Need to Know

product design secrets

You’re probably familiar with the challenges that are associated with increasing product complexity. It’s an issue that’s resulting in many companies reviewing their CAD capabilities, to see how they match up to their CAD needs. But, actually, there’s a lot that can be achieved by emulating the way best in class companies use their CAD tools. In fact, according to research by Aberdeen, these exceptional CAD users are able to decrease their product design time and costs by nearly double the amount compared to the industry average. So what are the product design secrets that enable these results?

How to Overcome the Challenges of Designing Large Assemblies


Right from the start of the process, the proverbial drawing board, there are real design challenges involved in creating large assembly lines. This can be for several reasons. Often the customer will not know exactly what they want their automated assembly line to do, so this inevitably impacts on the design process.  On top of this, there can also be changes made to the underlying product, which mean the design of the assembly needs to be altered.
