Visualize and Navigate Complex Product Data in One Unified Environment
Right Hemisphere's Visual Design Navigation allows any user to browse massive 3D design data sets quickly and easily, making it ideal for design reviews, manufacturing engineering and general product data search and discovery.
The Challenge of Visual Navigation for Complex Products
To effectively design todays increasingly complex and configurable products, 3D design applications must generate richer and more comprehensive information. These design models create more robust geometry, detailed annotations and extensive data attribute content. Additionally, relevant product data is stored across the enterprise in ERP, PLM and MES systems. Navigating and making maximum use of this enormous data set represents a significant challenge. The problem is access to unified, relevant and current information for the task at hand.
- Current systems do not provide adequate access to full product information
- Products can only be interrogated a small portion at a time
- Information lacks user and process context
Estimates indicate that up to 70% of the process time for product related activities such as technical documentation, training material, design reviews and manufacturing process definition is spent searching and unifying the right information from multiple sources across the enterprise an enormous, unproductive cost.
The Right Hemisphere Visual Design Navigation Solution
Visual Design Navigation provides desktop and web-based access to complete product data sets including: geometry, annotations, business information and all associated documents. The solution enables intuitive navigation of an entire product and all its associated data in one unified environment, tailored to the needs of users as diverse as designers and customers, dramatically improving productivity across all departments. An End-to-End solution for
- Dramatically reduce the time to find relevant product data
- Reduce errors with combined graphical and textual information
- Navigate complete product assemblies and configurations in real-time
Support multiple departmental information and process needs with one solution:
- Engineering, Manufacturing, Service and Support, Sales and Marketing
Filter information by any linked attribute data or by spatial proximity for example:
- all released components or components out of stock
- all components within 15 cm of this one or in a zone
- See associated data based on a 3D part or assembly selection
- View related documents such as lubrication specifications or installation training procedures
- Changing the Way Companies Use their Most Precious Resources
The Right Hemisphere solution architecture is designed to unify, synchronize and deliver complex product information: graphical and non- graphical, 2D, 3D and multi-dimensional data from such diverse sources as CAD, ERP, PLM, MES, document management solutions and more.
Visual Design Navigation leverages this platform to provide unprecedented ease of access to this combined information that enables utilization in a wide variety of operational processes. The multi-system, real-time connectivity capability of the solution, not only makes this data more easily available it is also current and synchronized. This reduces errors and costs across many functional departments and extends to communications with suppliers and customers.
The Advantages of Right Hemisphere Visual Design Navigation:
