Previously the production of custom drawings was a slow and time consuming process explains Dennis Rene Jacob Hvam, internal CAD and PDM consultant at JELD-WEN:
“It could last up to three days to make the drawing ready for the customer. Now the salesperson receives the drawing in just 5 to 10 minutes and can forward it to the client for final review and approval”
DriveWorks now covers 75-80% of customer orders for special cut-outs in doors and complete glass panels, with some 25,000 drawings providing the basis for fast configuration of new products and the generation of additional drawings that meet their customer’s specific needs.
Along with time savings, savings on costs and increased overall efficiency, DriveWorks has yielded other benefits. Whereas previously four people were required to make the daily registration of orders with DriveWorks this now requires only two, freeing up two people to work on development projects.
In other areas such as customer communication there have also been improvements. With DriveWorks, customers quickly receive their drawings and the completely standardised layout of the drawings simplifies the process.
