CONCORD, Mass.– Leviton has purchased 300 licenses of SolidWorks® 3D CAD software to speed product development and improve global collaboration as it continues to strengthen its market leadership.
Integrated design and analysis
The nature of electrical plugs, outlets, and other close-fit components mandates exact tolerances. Previously, Leviton had to outsource much of its design analysis to ensure accuracy. COSMOSWorks will enable the company to keep more product development in-house because engineers will be able to see precise fits within the design window.
Leviton plans to improve internal collaboration with PDMWorks Enterprise, which will enable engineers around the world to access the latest versions of every product design, work concurrently on the same designs, and ensure version control. Engineers will also more easily share design information with sales, marketing, scheduling, billing, and other operations when Leviton integrates PDMWorks Enterprise with its Oracle database.
Leviton will also improve collaboration with customers, partners, suppliers, and others using SolidWorks’ eDrawings® design communication tool. eDrawings allows users to send design files in e-mails that recipients can open, view, rotate, pan, and manipulate as if they were holding the drawing in their hands.
