The Cad Geeks are on the road this week at the Fall COE Aerospace and Defense Workshops. General session starts at 8:00 AM CST, and I’ll be live tweeting @CadGuys. Stay tuned for more updates.
Well Spring COE 2010 is in the books. Thanks to everyone that stopped by and saw for themselves that the Tata Nano is not a cheap car, but a car sold for a low price.
As COE is truly a year round event, make sure you stop by www.coe.org to see what events and webinars they have coming up, as well as look back here to see what we have cooking. I see V6 demos popping up here in the near future, so stay tuned.
Spring COE is almost here. Have you made your reservations yet? We’ll have the Tata Nano in the technifair, as well as 4 presentations during the show. I’ll be live Tweeting opening session @CADGuys, followed by blog updates.
See ya soon!!
James DeLaPorte from Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation just took the stage and introduced his team that is here today.
Gulfstream thinks of data as a 100 year lifespan.
3.8 Million total sq. footage with over 10,000 employees.
Challenges: Worlds first FAA approved 3D MBD business model.
G650 new airplane how they did it: Dassault Integrated Suite of products.
Dual PDMs… SmarTeam and LCA
It all starts with Part Design, then goes to FT&A… no more 2D. To get around the drawing title block having the “default” tolerance… it now is a part of the BOM.
Next to the assembly, everything is in the tree. That is the BOM
Vaulted in ENOVIA, black box. then use SmarTeam as the static vault (certification vault) LCA never makes it past the design room.
i CHECK IT is used in the bridge to make sure the data is clean. “Have not lost any data”
Effectivities are done in SmarTeam.
SmarTeam workflow is then used.
Generated BOMs are generated to PDF
Bulk export out of SmarTeam to the suppliers. Script looks at the product structure makes the BOM and zips it up.
Time for a new CAD release. Old version is opens file as well as the
Kubotek – Topology analysis using surfaces
ITI CADIQ – Topology analysis using points
then compare results between both tools. This is released data… what do you do if it is wrong. STEP out. make the change. Have FAA process, STEP back in, then take in SmarTeam.
How do I know STEP file is good? compare STEP file back to original CAD.
FT&A data has to be compared as well.
Manufacturing gets the data – CATIA V5
DELMIA VNC is used
DELMIA Plant Layout used
Tooling – CATIA V5
Tool verification – Metrolog V5
Shop floor Execution - Solumina / SmarTeam / CATIA
Shop Floor has dual screen setup and the communication with engineering has been improved greatly.
Installation precision through the roof. Major component installation hours to minutes.
30 3rd party vendors
50 workstations 10 training sessions
more than 30 educational sessions
40 individual events
2010 Annual conference April 18-21 at the Rio in LV.
Dr. Michael Jahadi just took the stage
COE and DSCC how the twp will work together.

I’ll be posting from the general session as well as Tweeting @CadGuys.
