Connecting Your Design Stakeholders on the Cloud

Connecting Your Design Stakeholders on the Cloud

Whether you are a small company in a single location or a multisite global corporation, your design and engineering teams must stay on the same page. 3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight enables designers to create and share designs quickly and easily, allowing key stakeholders to give feedback throughout the design process.

With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, sharing up-to-date drawing files with everyone on the team is just a few clicks away, with all the design data stored securely in the cloud. 3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight is part of the 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio of cloud solutions, bringing all your key stakeholders together on a single collaborative platform. Streamlined collaboration naturally increases design efficiency.

Streamline Design Approvals

Now you can conduct real-time design reviews, accessible to everyone on the team, even when people are working from home or on the road. Everyone with a device and an internet connection can be included in the design review meeting. Plus, no CAD knowledge or CAD software is required to participate in the review, which means managers or executives can be brought into early-stage design reviews when making changes is less painful and time-consuming. Because any team member can view and markup drawings, stakeholder signoffs are accelerated.

Design efficiencies also increase by getting real-time design feedback from manufacturing partners and vendors, avoiding potentially expensive downstream issues.

Reduce Emails

One of the challenges of design reviews is managing communications throughout the process, which can include managers, vendors, and customers. Managing all those project emails quickly becomes unwieldy. Which email has the necessary file? And, is this file the latest version?

The cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform takes a different approach, supporting project communications from an exclusive, secure place on the cloud. You can create project communities on the platform to enable everyone to make posts, ask questions, or present product ideas, all in the same shared environment. This makes traceability automatic—no more managing tons of project emails.

Communication threads enable stakeholders to resolve questions without needing to dig through piles of emails and associated folders. Tools to make communication easy can instantly increase design project efficiencies.

The Right File, every Time

Managing changes and design revisions is an integral part of the design process, whether addressing major design issues or minor changes. One of the nice things about connecting to the platform is that you always access live data; there is no risk of being out of sync on model revisions or assembly configurations. 3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight enables you to manage drawing files and data on the cloud in a collaborative environment connected with DraftSight. And there is no need to set up a PDM or PLM system; the data management capabilities are baked right into the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Faster Design Process

We’re delivering your familiar DraftSight experience – the ability to create edit, view, and mark up 2D and 3D files with speed and efficiency, combined with browser-based design solutions and secure, convenient cloud-based data management. By connecting DraftSight to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, designers can continue their work in DraftSight while the design data can be accessed by the defined community. As designs change, the shared common data updates automatically, so everyone stays in sync, increasing efficiency across the board.

Collaboration with all stakeholders is critical in today’s product development process. Managing design data, assigning tasks, conducting reviews, and sharing ideas give your business a strategic advantage. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides the infrastructure and tools to bring design stakeholders together in a singular, dynamic environment.

The result is faster, more efficient design, and helps ready your business for the next phase of success.
