Sigmetrix To Be Sponsors at the Generis American Automotive Summit in Detroit, MI
Attendees will be able to explore how Sigmetrix can help them maximize the return on their MBD/MBE investment as well as delivering more innovative products through Mechanical Variation Management.
MCKINNEY, Texas – October 23, 2023— Sigmetrix, global experts in Mechanical Variation Management announced that they will be attending the Generis American Automotive Summit being held on October 23-24 at the MGM Grand Detroit in Booth 16.
The American Automotive Summit provides insights and strategies to enhance the professional development of executives involved in automotive manufacturing, operations, design, engineering, supply chain quality, and innovation. This executive automotive event serves as an annual platform to exchange ideas surrounding the impact of market dynamics and new technologies for current and future automotive leaders.
This year’s automotive conference will examine key case studies around how workforce management, manufacturing process optimization, quality/cost management and automation are being rolled out at the world’s best facilities! There will be networking opportunities with over 150 automotive leaders along with the ability to learn from the industry’s top influencers.
One major initiative that is helping companies with this automation and quality/cost management is Model-Based Definition, Industry 4.0, and Digital Thread. Many companies are starting down the path toward a Model-Based Enterprise, but that path can be challenging. There are many facets to becoming truly Model-Based, but as the name implies, the key is the models themselves and their connections to various parameters. It is important that all requirements be tied directly to this comprehensive set of models to ensure traceability and usability. One set of requirements that is critical to the quality of any product is its dimensional requirements that are used to control mechanical variation. Sigmetrix, with its knowledge of managing mechanical variation, can help maximize the return on your MBD / MBE investment in the following ways: Ensure the integrity of your MBD to maximize usability.
Traditional views on the management and understanding of mechanical variation have stifled innovation in some companies and limited them to only developing derivative products. The best-performing companies see how a consistent understanding of mechanical variation throughout an organization and the ability to quickly simulate sensitivity to variation in concepts leads to more innovative, breakthrough products.
“Sigmetrix helps companies manage their Mechanical Variation to make better products,” states Ed Walsh, Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing. “Variation is something that is inevitable in manufacturing and can affect the quality of products. The Automotive Industry relies on rigorous safety and production standards, which is why it is important to properly manage variation. If not managed correctly, this can make products less competitive, create a poor customer experience or even cause a recall if products aren’t up to standard.”
Attendees will want to make sure to catch Ed Walsh, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, present “How Variation Impacts Designs in Automotive” on Tuesday October 24th at 2:50PM ET. Also, make sure to sign up for Ed’s “Lunch & Learn” session on Tuesday October 24th at 1:05PM ET.
In addition to demonstrating CETOL 6σ at their booth Sigmetrix will be showing off their entire portfolio of comprehensive, easy-to-use solutions including:
- CETOL 6σ, a 3D tolerance analysis solution that works with designs from PTC Creo, SOLIDWORKS, CATIA V5-6, and NX CAD systems.
- GD&T Advisor, an interactive tool that provides expert guidance on the correct application of GD&T / GPS consistent with either the ASME or ISO standards.
- EZtol, a standalone 1-D tolerance stackup analysis tool that works with designs from most popular CAD systems as well as CAD-neutral file formats.
- Training provided through more than a dozen instructor-led and computer-based courses covering basic to advanced GD&T/GPS, MBE, and MBD.
- Consulting and implementation services team with years of experience in tolerance analysis and GD&T definition offers a variety of consulting services to augment your team, speed your project along and run analyses for your assemblies.
