Issue: Variation in lens connections causing build and functional issues.
Solution: Simulation in 3DCS of assembly determined contributors and the true cause of variation.
Results: Basic design change and simulation validation produced a reduction in overall assembly variation, greatly reducing the chance of assembly build failures.
Issue: Variation of Internal components of laptop causing assembly build issues – hard drive, mother board, ram chips, etc… - Limited space inside of Laptop case creates very little room for variation. Changes in components from manufacturing variation were causing cases where the components did not all fit inside the case, or close proximity caused thermal issues.
Solution: Simulating the assembly sequence with variation taken into account provided new insight into the source of the variation and primary trouble areas. Making minor design alterations, and rerunning the analysis validated improvements to the assembly process.
Results: With basic design changes to the placement of the components, the current amount of variation was accounted for, requiring very little adjustment in tolerances.
Schedule a 1-on-1 Web meeting with a DCS application engineer to see 3DCS live and learn how it can be used to reduce your quality costs.
