Use dedicated automotive tools to design and manufacture best-in-class cars and equipment

It is essential to have a workflow that allows you to consider everything from concept to documentation.

A workflow also provides a platform for working with Automotive OEMs and Suppliers more effectively, and the result is reducing costs and solving issues early in the design and manufacturing process.

Workflow for automotive design and manufacturing

Each automotive design and manufacturing company is different, but workflows are designed to be tailored and used to meet objectives. Our clients benefit from our expertise by using our consultation services before implementing a new workflow.

If you are looking to reduce costly late charges and better manage external processes, then consider improving your workflow.

Understanding your workflow

Here at Majenta, we take pride in listening to our clients and getting to understand their processes and objectives.

The first step to reduce costs and improve efficiencies within design and manufacturing is to understand the workflow and your objectives.

Automotive Workflows

Concept Design

  • Better communicate and review your ideas and concepts in the early design phases with developed 2D sketches and 3D virtual models.
  • Create, visualise, and modify your concepts faster; reduce the need for physical clay models with rapid, virtual clay modelling.
  • Collaborate better and make decisions faster with the ability to visualise and review 3D designs in real-time.
  • Improve efficiency when you develop concepts and sketches, design surfaces, and visualise concepts using 2D sketches or 3D animation tools.

Design and Styling

  • Move faster from modelling to decision making with efficient surface design, visualisation, and 3D concept development.
  • Make decisions faster with the ability to quickly set up alternatives and scenes, and review detailed virtual designs.
  • Meet early demands with the ability to produce movie-quality, production-ready CGI and videos.

Technical Surfacing

  • Develop technical surface faster; create production-ready surfaces from the design model that are ready for hand-off to engineering.
  • Better judge perceived quality without a physical model with the ability to review texture, colour and trim, character lines, highlights, and illumination on your surfaces and designs.

Sales, Marketing and POS

  • Get movie-quality, production-ready CGI and videos for reuse in marketing.
  • Efficiently generate CGI from real-time visualisation, and explore modifications like additional colours or alternative geometrics during the product lifecycle.

Product Engineering

  • Increase efficiency with design accelerators like frame and shaft generators, along with modules for sheet metal and plastic part design.
  • Easily set up and manage work-group data, secure design data, and increase efficiency with multi-site collaboration and access to enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.
  • Easily use real-time visualisation for engineering reviews such as perceived quality, light design, and gap analysis.

Product Simulation

  • Reduce costly tool changes with earlier understanding of plastic part behaviour, including fill time predictions and surface defect alerts.
  • Reduce iteration cycles and predict alternative behaviour to enable early changes in designs with upfront flow analysis.
  • Understand behaviour and performance better and make earlier changes with an upfront simulation of electro-mechanical or mechanical designs.
  • Use real-time visualisation for simulation result reviews such as plastic parts quality and better visual review of CFD simulation results.
  • Set up and securely manage work-group and simulation data with multi-site collaboration and access to ERP systems.

Production Equipment Design

  • Reduce costly prototypes with Digital Prototyping design of production equipment, and depend on routed systems for reliable designs.
  • Increase efficiency with built-in productivity tools and 2D design tools developed for mechanical design.
  • Design and maintain electrical wire diagrams for production equipment machinery in an efficient toolset that includes libraries and electrical logic.
  • Reduce iterations and costly tool changes with an early prediction of production parameters, e.g. fill times, and issues such as surface defects.
  • Increase efficiency with easy-to-set-up work-group data management and multi-site collaboration and access to ERP systems.
  • Set up PLM backbone to manage the processes in production equipment design, such as quality management and supplier collaboration.

Factory Planning

  • Automatically transfer 2D layouts to 3D visual layouts and use 3D layout tools with an extensive library and asset ecosystem via asset warehouse.
  • Design a building in 3D, and use a centralised information system for the entire process, from planning to building operation.
  • Easily set up and securely manage work-group data management with multi-site collaboration and access to ERP systems.
  • Easily set up PLM backbone to manage the processes in production planning, factory installation, project management, and external supplier collaboration.

Documentation

Easily use tools for efficient development of 2D drawing-based documentation.
