The end to end development process of complex assemblies requires consistent management of information and attention to detail, making the implementation of an efficient fastener management process crucial to keeping any program on schedule. The Syncrofit portfolio of software offers a concurrent approach to the design and manufacturing process that allows users to effectively respond to the complexities of part and assembly interdependencies. Syncrofit is the only production-proven, CAD integrated, commercial off-the-shelf solution (COTS) for the management of complex assemblies.
This integrated method of complex assembly design and manufacturing allows users to make well informed design decisions for an overall smoother path to design realization. The Syncrofit software portfolio provides early and continuous design rule verification, the automation of tedious design tasks, and BOM updates to prevent downstream fastener procurement problems and improve communication both internally and with suppliers throughout the design and manufacturing process.
Fastener type, location, specification, procurement, and installations requirements add up quickly when defining thousands, if not millions, of parts within a single aircraft. Syncrofit provides the peace of mind in knowing that every facet of your assembly will fall into place as specified, on time and on budget.
Fastening & Joint Design
For design engineers, Syncrofit facilitates an intuitive approach to the authoring of fastener management design data throughout the iterative process of assembly definition, design rule verification, fastener/hole visualization, and documentation release. The software stores the design data, linked to the associated 3D CAD geometry, directly inside the commercial 3D CAD model, completing the 3D product definition.
Fastening and Joint Manufacturing
For manufacturing engineers, Syncrofit takes the guess work out of consuming fastener management engineering data for production. It facilitates the creation, management and communication of the multiple manufacturing states required for assembling structures with advanced manufacturing processes.
