Eurobond Doors

Eurobond Doors, headquartered in Wales, UK, manufactures design-to-order industrial and commercial steel doors. As a customer-driven business, Eurobond Doors wants to ensure that its customer base has the best possible experience, which means shorter lead times and increased efficiency and consistency.

Eurobond Doors product offering consists of 83 configurable parts. The DriveWorks configurator allows them to easily enter the door specification as detailed in their job traveler. This can be done manually, or directly from an XML generated by their ERP system.

Working together, DriveWorks Autopilot and SOLIDWORKS then generate the required models and manufacturing drawings automatically, ready for checking by the engineering team.

When a customer approves a quote, the salesperson can go back into the system, pick up the quote drawing, and produce the shop drawing automatically, along with the BOM all through DriveWorks.

DriveWorks is helping Eurobond to work more efficiently and their DriveWorks project is easy to maintain.

This makes the development of new products much faster andcustomers receive drawings of their custom product drawings quicker. Drawings are received and sent to customers within minutes with DriveWorks.

The benefits of DriveWorks go further than engineering. DriveWorks is helping sales team members to communicate with customers more effectively, delivering drawings of their custom products to customers.

Previously, it could take up to 3 days for JELD-WEN to make the drawings available for the customer.

Now, drawings are received by a salesperson inas little as 5 – 10 minutes. The drawing isforwarded directly to clients for final review before manufacturing.

Karpen Steel

Karpen Steel, based in the USA, manufactures high-quality custom doors and frames. They aim to exceed customer expectations by manufacturing dependable products that meet critical quality standards with prompt, on-time delivery.

Using DriveWorks Pro, Karpen Steel has streamlined its order process. The amount of employee time needed to process each order has been reduced and the process is nowslicker and more efficient, allowing Karpen Steel to concentrate onwinning more ordersand providinggreat customer service.

Once an order is received, the customer service team enters the parameters of the order into the DriveWorks Configurator. This then creates the 3D SOLIDWORKS model and orderdocuments for both the customer and the workshop. The price for the order is also generated and the order or quote is placed as a database entry.This is all done in one single step with DriveWorks.

The form within the DriveWorks Pro Configurator guides a user through the order process. Customers can only see, and are prompted to fill out, the relevant fields on the form for the product line they have selected. By using pictures, pop-up warnings, and instructions, errors are highlighted before the order progresses to the next step. The ability to set up error checking within DriveWorks Pro prevents the user from leaving out required information or entering parameters that cant be manufactured. This helps to minimize the number of times orders must be returned due to incomplete or inaccurate information, which would disrupt the order flow.

As DriveWorks automates SOLIDWORKS, the customer service team are effectively now using its powerful 3D capabilities,without the need for any SOLIDWORKS training. Karpen Steels engineering team are freed up from simple, repetitive tasks to focus on the more critical aspects of the order.
