Deploying design automation company-wide

The benefits of design automation are well documented and easy to prove – even the most basic design automation can increase productivity and reduce repetitive tasks and errors.

To get the maximum benefit, you should identify inefficiencies, automate as many non-value adding processes as possible and then deploy your configurators for everyone to use.

Whether you decide to keep your design automation projects internal to your business, for your engineers and sales teams only, or extend the benefits of design automation to your distributors, dealers, and customers, the modular design of DriveWorks software gives you flexibility and choice.

With DriveWorks User, your engineers, sales teams and other non-technical users within your business can run your design automation projects, configure custom products, and create sales and manufacturing documentation automatically. All design automation and sales configurator projects are controlled centrally using DriveWorks Administrator and protected from unauthorized use and modification.

Access for internal users

Enable engineers, sales teams, and other non-technical users to configure custom products inside SOLIDWORKS® or in the standalone application.

Automatically generate documents and data

Automatically generate custom documents and data for sales and manufacturing when paired with DriveWorks Autopilot.

No editing capability

Prevents unauthorized use of design automation projects and modification of design rules.

We are now able to quickly enter order details and generate quotes and drawings, making turnaround much more efficient

Key features

Configure custom products any way you like

DriveWorks User gives you and your colleagues the flexibility to configure custom products any way you like. Engineers can configure products using the DriveWorks User standalone application or by running DriveWorks User inside the task pane of their SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software.

Sales teams and other non-technical users can configure new custom designs with DriveWorks User on any Windows®-based desktop, laptop, or tablet computer, either connected to the company network or offline at a customer site. Product data configured offline can then be transferred to the DriveWorks Pro Server queuing system when the computer is next connected to the company network, or sent via email remotely, and then processed by a colleague in engineering or automatically by DriveWorks Autopilot.

Configurators that adapt to you

A design automation project created with DriveWorks Pro can detect and react to the environment in which it is being used – inside DriveWorks User, inside SOLIDWORKS, or in a web browser with DriveWorks Live.

Projects need only be designed once, then deployed and used in different ways, on different devices, by different users. With DriveWorks Pro, you can easily alter the look and feel of the user interface, the product options available, and the information displayed, so that your engineers, sales teams, and other non-technical users can quickly see the information they need to see, in the way they need to see it.
