Improve Your Product's Perceived Quality Through Visualization Studies in Leading Tools: Deltagen, CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, Keyshot, Design Studio and More
Perceived Quality Studies are a means of communicating quality objectives and attainable quality levels between Design and Engineering teams. This process incorporates iterative studies to determine acceptable aesthetic levels and then confirms manufacturing's ability to meet those objectives.
Steps in a Perceived Quality driven PLM Cycle:
Perceived Quality Studies can be used to target specific Gap and Flush conditions to see how variation will affect the appearance of the product. Hood to Fender gaps, rear view mirrors, displays on cameras, panels on consumer goods, seats on snow mobiles. Every product benefits from Perceived Quality Studies.
Before getting any manufacturing tolerances, use SPEC STUDIES to set Gap and Flush conditions to determine maximum and minimum acceptable levels.
Review the Spec Studies and share with colleagues to determine maximum and minimum acceptable conditions. Review design options and colors to see how these features affect the appearance of the product.
Complete the Tolerance Analysis Model by adding assembly processes and production tolerances within the given design parameters determined earlier.
Monte Carlo Simulation gives statistical probabilities for different variation scenarios. See how these scenario conditions affect your product's appearance.
Just because the design allows the product to be successfully built does not mean it will look good!
