Migma Packtron is India’s leading manufacturer of commercial vehicle dashboards and automotive interior components and the preferred vendor of leading automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of commercial vehicle dashboards. From its inception in 1988, the company’s goal has been to become a leading global provider of quality, state-of-the-art customized products and solutions.
The company recently developed more cost-effective and attractive, snap-fit automotive interior components, which are easier to install and remove and have no visible hardware, thus creating a more aesthetically pleasing vehicle interior. Initially Migma Packtron used outside resources for product development, but management brought pattern design and development engineering in-house in 2018, choosing SOLIDWORKS® mechanical design solutions over other options, and implementing SOLIDWORKS CAD.
Speed Product Development
As Director Nitin Raut explains, “SOLIDWORKS has helped us in speeding up our development process and delivering high-quality products to customers more quickly. As we develop fixtures and continue innovating our manufacturing processes, we need a robust solution with a short learning curve, which is why we chose SOLIDWORKS. After we began using SOLIDWORKS, we have been able to shorten delivery times by 20 percent. Building on this success, we decided to use SOLIDWORKS on the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE® platform by acquiring 3DEXPERIENCE Works solutions.”
Affordable Data Management
By adding the affordable cloud-based data management to its SOLIDWORKS implementation, Migma Packtron cut its design cycles by 30 percent. The combination of SOLIDWORKS and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform helped the company to further streamline development and manufacturing processes. It also enabled the company to facilitate collaboration within and across all departments to not only improve product quality, revision controls, data security, and information and data access, but also facilitate release processes, change management, and standardization across the organization. The company also reduced infrastructure, IT, and software maintenance costs.
“The combination of SOLIDWORKS design software and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables our teams to plan, execute, and monitor project status in real time,” Raut stresses. “By empowering team members to efficiently collaborate from anywhere, at any time, and on any device, the platform enables them to easily share tasks and define deliverables, dependencies, and key milestones. Revision control minimizes errors, and because we can work in the cloud, our IT overhead, infrastructure, software maintenance, and future hardware investment costs are all reduced.”
SOLIDWORKS design software and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform help Migma Packtron deliver. Raut concludes, “Maintaining and growing our market position demands high-quality products and timely delivery.”
