What is Digital Manufacturing?
Digital manufacturing is the concept of digitizing your entire manufacturing process — from design to production — using manufacturing simulation software. This enables businesses to virtually simulate the entire product lifecycle in a digital factory. Now, it’s easier than ever to optimize your manufacturing processes, reduce product costs, and accelerate time to revenue.
Today, a similar paradigm shift is happening in the world of manufacturing.
For years, manufacturers have been testing the validity of new product designs by manufacturing physical prototypes. What if you were able to test the validity of a new product design by simulating the exact same manufacturing processes used in the physical world without ever having to waste time and money building a prototype? Think of how much faster you could bring products to market on-time and under budget. That’s what digital manufacturing can do for you.
Imagine this. aPriori can leverage all the rich information in your 3D CAD model designs and automatically stream that information through a digital factory. We offer nearly 100 digital factories representing different regions around the world. Simulate the entire manufacturing process in - literally - minutes.
Our digital factories will automatically identify specific areas of the design that will create problems in the manufacturing process and provide guidance on how to fix those problems before they are compounded.
The result - you identify costly manufacturability problems early in the design lifecycle, significantly reduce late stage ECOs, and enable you to more consistently launch new products to market on time.
Save timeaPriori has completely changed the design process. Manufacturability and cost analysis happens automatically in the background while you design, saving hundreds of hours in ECOs.
Save moneyWith aPriori, design to cost can be accomplished without years of cost modeling or manufacturing process knowledge. This leads to fewer changes after release, and a better utilization of your factory.
