Marelli, based in Caxias do Sul, Brazil specialize in the corporate and collaborative furniture market, providing products for meeting tables, management rooms, and workstations, along with seating, fixed and swivel chairs, floor-to-ceiling partitions, sofa enclosures, and armchairs.

Before implementing DriveWorks software

Before using DriveWorks, the assembly process was done manually and each product had to be developed component by component.

For Michel Panassol Moreira, Engineering Manager at Marelli, “the development demanded a lot of time from the Engineering team. We also suffered a lot with the manual process, which allowed for several possibilities of error. With the implementation of DriveWorks, we reduced the chance of error and repetitive tasks, and gained quality and robustness in the deliveries”.

Being an innovative company in a competitive market, Marelli was searching for a way to improve efficiency, save time and most importantly, improve the experience of their customers.

Marelli decided to implement DriveWorks in the design of their floor-to-ceiling partitions, obtaining impressive results for several areas of the company.

Marelli implemented DriveWorks to automate and ensure a robust product development process.

Saving time by automating manual processes

Daniel Toigo Bortoncello, a Marelli designer who developed the automation process with DriveWorks has seen a 63% decrease in the time spent on repetitive tasks for customized projects. This time reduction enables designers to have more time to dedicate to the development of new projects and means that they can launch new products faster.

Owing to the product development capabilities in DriveWorks and the easy integration with SOLIDWORKS, Marelli estimates that time spent on design has reduced by 50%.

As customized products are designed faster, the wait time between the customers initial request and their final approval of the design has also significantly reduced. This further increases the satisfaction of the customer, the most important factor!

The software enables the automation of engineering processes such as customization and configuration.
Customized designs are created quickly and efficiently.

With the implementation of DriveWorks, we decrease the chance of error and repetitive tasks, and gain in quality and robustness in deliveries.
