What is Engineering Data Conversion?
Conversion of company legacy engineering and design data and documentation from a variety of outdated or outmoded formats into state-of-the-art, fully parametric 3D CAD formats, including solid models and assemblies as well as associated drawings.
Outdated systems and legacy data is a common cause of a sluggish workflow that is often overlooked. Typically, this data can still be very useful, however it is of little help to your company when stored in outdated software and file formats. Since this data can still provide value, converting to the latest file format is crucial for effectively preserving this information while making sure it is accessible so it can be beneficial to the organization.
Saratech has an experienced team of engineers that are well-versed in converting legacy data using best practices. Our team's flexibilty and resource network allows us to get moving on projects rapidly. We utilize a robust and effective quality check process and configuration management system so you can be sure that your data is in good hands.
Benefits of Converting Legacy Engineering Data?
Reduction of errors and omissions
Many older hand-drawn or board designed parts and assemblies contain dimensional, specification, or other incorrect, missing, or outdated information causing myriad downstream issues.
Leaner manufacturing capabilities
Modern manufacturing facilities feature digital work instructions and process flows which are based on 3D parametric CAD data.
Quick Ramp-up Time
With Saratech, legacy data conversion projects can get moving rapidly thanks to our team's flexibility and resource network.
NRE on future designs
With the complete product converted to CAD, new designs are much faster and easier to explore and validate.
Faster design to market
With the complete product converted to CAD, new designs take less time to move through the development process.
Improved depot or repair facility fitment
Outdated designs often lead to incomplete configuration control on specific part and assembly designs which can result in incorrect replacement parts.
Who Would Benefit?
The benefits of having modern, updated, and secure engineering data is apparent. From development to production and product support, your technical organizations rely on this data to effectively do their jobs. Engineering data conversion is beneficial to:
- Any company that owns intellectual property for a product
- Aerospace companies
- Bio Medical companies
- Engineering functional leaders
- Marketing groups
- Maintenance and repair organizations
