Onshape is a disruptive technology redefining how companies develop products
By combining CAD, built-in data management, real-time collaboration tools, and business analytics in a file-less platform Onshape delivers:
- Radically accelerated time to market and improved quality through instant, cross-geography, cross-functional collaboration
- Dramatically reduced risk through virtual simulation and validation of products and entire production lines
- Low cost of ownership by eliminating specialized equipment and complicated licensing and the associated costs
The potential impact of Onshape is hard to overstate. Harnessing that potential requires a balance of product design strategy, data management and implementation expertise, which is why Kalypso is uniquely positioned to help.
Our work goes beyond implementation, integration and data migration to capture the most value out of Onshape and extend it across the value chain.
It takes just one early adopter to shift the paradigm with a new technology, and it can happen fast:
How one industry adopted 3D printing in 500 days
In 2000 a Belgium-based rapid prototyping service company collaborated with a Swiss hearing aid manufacturer to develop the first process to 3D print-manufacture custom built hearing aids.
After these companies proved the viability of additive manufacturing in hearing aids, the US hearing aid industry converted to 100-percent additive manufacturing in less than 500 days.
Fifteen years later 3D printers produced over 15 million hearing aids worldwide.
Digital product development capabilities have taken a leap forward with Onshape
Traditional product development tools are file-based and enabled by specialized equipment, dependent on costly upgrades and IT support. This inherently limits accessibility, creating functional silos that in turn generate communication and collaboration challenges. Data stored in files means conflicts in versioning and a disconnect between a rendered product and the data that makes up that product.
The future of product development is powered by the digital thread – a seamless flow of data that connects business processes across the value chain to deliver top-line growth, improve operational excellence and enable risk mitigation.
Onshape is a core fiber in the digital thread, carrying rich product and simulation data to supercharge accessibility and collaboration.
Parallel branching and merging means it’s possible to explore, test and track more design variations as a team resulting more innovative products
Real-time Virtual Collaboration
Including parties outside of design and engineering, means design impacts that might otherwise cause delays in production or time to market can be quickly addressed.
Accessibility and comprehensive security via cloud-based, and centralized data management means barriers to supplier collaboration are eliminated
A fully integrated Onshape platform means accessibility to complete, up-to-date data and analytics so managers can make more intelligent business decisions
Simulation / Emulation
A fully integrated Onshape platform means easier exchange of data with simulation/ emulation software, including integration with cloud-based solutions
Understanding how to approach Onshape
While you can license and use Onshape in the cloud today, capturing its full potential requires an understanding of where to start and how to take advantage of these new capabilities to bring your product creation process into a new paradigm.
