CMU SEI 2003 TR 015 vii,viii CMU SEI 2003 TR 015,Executive Summary. A small manufacturing enterprise SME providing custom designed precision electro. mechanical equipment to the aerospace industry was faced with increasing competition in a. stable market Maintaining market share required this SME to provide faster deliveries lower. prices and enhanced product performance This SME initiated a program to adopt advanced. computer aided design CAD and computer aided engineering CAE tools to improve their. design and engineering capability and achieve these business goals. This paper presents two case studies focusing on this SME s efforts to integrate three. dimensional 3D CAD and finite element analysis FEA into the design and engineering. process In doing this the SME obtained additional benefits by revising the overall design. process to include more analytical efforts at the early stages of the product design thereby. evolving from an analysis for validation to an analysis for optimization operational. model The insertion of the analysis effort into the design process is facilitated by the ability. of advanced CAD tools to produce 3D representations of the product design and by the abil. ity of the FEA tool to accept product design information from the CAD tool. During the first case study the SME transitioned from a familiar two dimensional 2D CAD. tool to a new 3D CAD tool When using the 2D CAD tool the SME created detailed design. drawings for each component of the product Interfaces between these components were veri. fied manually With the 3D CAD tool the SME created a single integrated model of all com. ponents and individual component production drawings were derived from this integrated. model The integrated model provided automated verification of component interfaces ena. bling the SME to identify and correct design errors e g mismatched mating dimensions. mismatched bolt holes during the design phase rather than after the components were manu. The SME addressed several challenges encountered during the creation and use of the inte. grated model Due to the complexity of the product the integrated model became quite large. as the design progressed creating difficulties in loading updating and storing the model The. SME developed a number of strategies to manage the size of the model These strategies re. sulted in specific procedures defining effective ways to synthesize organize and utilize de. sign data within the CAD tool, During the second case study the SME acquired in house FEA capability to replace efforts. that had previously been outsourced The starting point of FEA is the creation of a 3D model. CMU SEI 2003 TR 015 ix, of the product to be analyzed The availability of a 3D model from the CAD tool offered the. opportunity for the SME to transfer this model to the FEA tool Although the FEA and CAD. tools shared several common interface standards the transfer of a 3D model from the CAD to. the FEA tool was not without difficulty In general the CAD model contains considerably. more detail than is required by the FEA tool Attempting to analyze the detailed CAD model. overtaxed the FEA tool and yielded no results The SME developed strategies to improve. model transfer from CAD to FEA These strategies resulted in procedures defining preferred. methods of synthesizing and organizing the model These methods enabled the SME to de. velop CAD models that were highly compatible with the FEA tool They also enabled the. SME to easily and temporarily remove detail from the CAD model that was unneeded in the. The integration of 3D CAD and FEA affected not only the technology in place at this SME. but also design and engineering processes While there were increases in the amount of engi. neering effort these increases were more than offset by reduced engineering rework and de. creases in manufacturing effort achieved from improvements in the quality of the design Ad. ditional benefits were also seen in the quality of sales proposals. x CMU SEI 2003 TR 015, Small manufacturing enterprises face a number of challenges when integrating computer. aided design CAD tools and computer aided engineering CAE tools into their design. processes One of the most significant challenges is interoperability across the wide range of. commercial CAD and CAE tools Although many of these tools support industry data stan. dards and claim to be interoperable the connection between them is not seamless. This report summarizes two case studies of tool integration activities at one small manufac. turer The first study examines the enhancement of the product development process resulting. from replacement of a two dimensional CAD system with a three dimensional CAD system. The second examines the creation of an in house capability to perform finite element analysis. FEA replacing analysis that had previously been outsourced. As a result of these experiences the manufacturer learned that improved productivity and. superior designs could be obtained by integrating analysis into the design process at the ear. lier stages of conceptual and preliminary design The manufacturer also learned that the de. sign process and some design techniques had to change for the company to use the CAD and.
