Validation Tool Helps Manage Model Based Design Changes

MARLBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As part of the newly released Validation Tool 9.0, Kubotek USA is now officially offering the Validation Tool ECO product. Validation Tool ECO offers exciting new functionality for the automated creation of comprehensive engineering change order (ECO) reports. The addition of the ECO reporting allows users to simply and quickly document all changes to 3D models including product manufacturing information (PMI) with a Microsoft® PowerPoint® report.

Kubotek’s Validation Tool is a 3D model validation software that uses unique mathematical algorithms to compare CAD files significantly faster and more precisely than other similar comparison software on the market. Validation Tool ECO builds on its powerful model comparison engine, and directly addresses the challenges of communicating design revisions. The Validation Tool ECO product gives users extremely flexible reporting capabilities that can quickly document known, undetected or inaccurately communicated design changes.

Bob Bean, Executive Vice President, Kubotek USA, states, “Managing change to 3D models is very challenging because the 3D Model Based Definition (MBD) process does not contain dimensions, views or sections. Internal changes and external changes, like those that occur in the supply chain, can go undetected causing errors and delays.” He continues, “Kubotek is the only supplier of this technology that uses a true geometric kernel for geometric comparison with feature discovery to detect and document changes to 3D designs. What this means to the customer is fast, accurate and complete detection and documentation of any and all changes.”

All companies that perform design reviews or who must resubmit job bids based on design revisions will see immediate business advantages to using Validation Tool ECO. By eliminating costly manufacturing errors before they occur, and by more accurately re-quoting actual changes to the 3D model, businesses can confidently move design revisions in production and increase revenue.
