    In this session, we'll look at a workflow that goes from a drawing to the output of technical documentation for high-volume production using multiple setups and machines. It starts with raw material and the use of parametric modeling and model states to break up the individual operations. From there we can use Inventor Tolerance Analysis to determine stackups and points of high risk during machining. The model is then translated to Autodesk Fusion 360 software for its machining capabilities. It quickly shows the machine library and tooling library capabilities. The Fusion 360 CAM validates cycle times and interference checks. Fusion 360 CAM data is then exported. With Inventor, the part is then made into technical drawings. Tooling and inspection documents are then populated with all the necessary data. Any part updates can be driven parametrically, validated, and updated on demand.

    Key Learnings

    • Discover the high risk in time lost due to iterative changes for a long workflow.
    • Evaluate how it was identified as a high-risk workflow, with regards to design updates, process changes, and document control.
    • Learn about quantifying time savings in the iterations and necessary upfront work.
    • Discover value added by quick and agile iterative design.
