Shantui Construction Machinery Co., Ltd. (referred to as mountain push) is a specialized research and manufacturing of large construction machinery modern joint-stock company, the product in the country has a high market share, has a very strong design and manufacturing capabilities.
Hill pushed shares of the company attached great importance to the work of information, has invested over a thousand million for the promotion of information technology application and development. Back in 1994, Hill pushed on the response of the State Science Commission's "rejection Plate" project, the introduction of CAD technology, to 1996, just two years, all product and process designers to completely get rid of hand-illustrated, popular two-dimensional CAD technology the following year by Ministry of Science and CAD applications, "1150" business model.
Ability to select the focus integrated
In order to improve the basis for CAD applications, mountain push two-dimensional CAD technology in promoting the process, step by step to complete the enterprise product technology standardization, serialization and universal basic work. With the Hill pushed the deepening of CAD technology in 1997, combined with CAD applications Shantui actual situation and development planning, with the Chinese education companies to redefine the product component coding rules, in order to solve the design manual, formula and method, the standard , a typical structure, common parts, purchased parts of the electronic work, easy computer information processing, has developed a product-organization leading to the main line of product structure of product-based enterprise network data management system (PDM) and Computer Aided Process Process Design System (CAPP), includes product design, component design, process design and product development process management and product data management, with product information modeling, computer aided process planning, computer aided manufacturing capabilities, to meet the system integration and openness requirements.
In 2003, Hill pushed the "information technology plan (2003 ~ 2005)," the overall goal of information technology is two to three years, the feasibility of the introduction of advanced logic and methods and the accurate completion of company's central database, to achieve by the CAD system, PDM / CAPP system → ERP system → → financial system office automation system, the formation of management, design, office, financial integration. According to overall planning, implementation step by step, major breakthroughs, easy things first, gradually deepening the implementation of the principles, on existing design pattern transformation, gradual development of 3D design, finite element analysis, Jigou analysis and product data governance, building to PDM / CAPP system as the core, the three-dimensional CAD systems, CAE, CAM system, that is, all product-related information and all product-related process of integration together with other enterprise information management systems to provide basic data source, as the implementation of comprehensive the basis of information.
In the choice of 3D CAD software, Hill pushed not only consider the software's functionality, ease of use and other factors, even more important to consider the software and CAE, CAM, PDM integration capabilities, as CAD is the CAE, CAM and PDM's basis, both finite element analysis, kinematic analysis, surface design or mold design and assembly of products in the relationship between PDM, CAD parts constitute the details have to be to provide basic data. CAD parts and components made on any changes needed in a timely manner in the CAE, CAM and PDM reflected. As the existing PDM, CAPP system can not three-dimensional CAD software design process and design effective management the results of three-dimensional CAD system will not be a good effect, it was decided with the appropriate PDM system to promote the application of three-dimensional CAD software .
3 start with deepening the application
December 2003, a number of software vendors in the investigation, the mountain push selected PTC's Pro / Engineer software product design and development of mechanical structure and select the Exeter's XTPDM, XTCAPP for product and process data management platform software. Promote the use of 3D CAD software to design, pushing the major mountains to complete the following areas:
Pay full attention to training
Established a training room, for Pro / Engineer modules conducted 15 training, training of technical staff to 400 people, training is mainly based on points, and the first for each design office produced a group of master Pro / Engineer related to Module personnel, then they led the department through the instructional staff to further study and Pro / Engineer application.
Effective incentive measures
To promote the Pro / Engineer in product design, to further enhance the designer's 3D design capabilities, Hill pushed in November 2004 organized by Pro / Engineer product design competition, by the Chief Engineer, Liverpool's high-end Training Expert site evaluation group composed of judges, according to the creative works, design and technology, manufacturing feasibility and reasonable structure, technology, aesthetics ultimately winning approval, given the corresponding prize, certificate awards.
Standardization work in place
Established a factory standard parts, GM parts 3D parts library, standard three-dimensional, two-dimensional drawing template to call at any time during the design process.
Promote the use of CAD by 10 years of technology, Hill pushed the whole process of product development to achieve data integration and functional integration, efficiency and social benefits are greatly enhanced, comprehensive information for enterprises and lay a good technical base, and received the following major benefits.
The first is to improve the competitiveness of enterprises. Hill pushed the establishment of a "generation of production, prototype generation, pre-research generation" of technical guidelines for rapid response to market changes, to seize the market, further to the international market. CAD, CAE, CAM and PDM / CAPP, and information technology contributed to the popularization and application.
The second increase in new product development capabilities. Through three-dimensional modeling, dynamic simulation, and other means to improve the stability of the product, feasibility, mountain push products and more varieties of small batch conditions, shortens the development cycle, update the product of the time. Accelerated the upgrading of products.
In 2000, the State of the project and to support the development of new products DG70 Pipelayer, from design to product success off the assembly line in just 80 days, and passed the national identification, to fill the gap; by the end of December 2002, an engineering company in Zhejiang designed 3 sets of DG45-type pipe crane, from product development to pay users to use, just over 50 days of working time, another record breaking show in the new R & D process CAD great power.
The third improved digestion and absorption capacity of the introduction of products. To TY220 (D85A-18) bulldozer, for example, the product is the only imported from Japan Komatsu proprietary manufacturing technology to produce a full set of products, and now the machine has reached more than 96% localization rate.
Fourth improve the quality of work. Information integration through the implementation techniques to achieve a rapid exchange of accurate technical data to enhance the design, engineering, production, purchasing, sales and other exchange of information between different professionals, and information bound to minimize the inappropriate product development, shortening product design and manufacturing time, reduce costs, improve quality, make the products with excellent cost performance.
Improve the technical level of the fifth. Use of CAD / CAE design and analysis products, to design more reasonable, more standardized product data. PDM unified management of design data, greatly reducing the duplication of design, materials under repeated schedule delays and costs caused by waste, established a project management and product data management system as the core product development, reducing unnecessary work interfaces.
Sixth train a pool of talent. To technical personnel in-depth understanding and knowledge of Pro / Engineer, PDM / CAPP and other technical software, and can skillfully applied to work.
