The client in question is a highly successful European automotive parts manufacturer and assembler, with an instantly recognizable brand value amongst consumers. The client wanted to an external service provider to take care of its 2D drawing requirements and streamline the procedures.
Having already toyed with the idea of outsourcing the work, the client was looking out for an organization which could deduce a solution that would seamlessly integrate with its original production procedures. Seamless integration, higher efficiency, cost effectiveness, and premium quality work were some of the main business requirements of the client.
The technical requirements were daunting as well, and included -
Tolerance Task Analysis
Application of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD & T)
Detailing of parts and assemblies in a two dimensional view, strictly following the ANSI Y14.5 standards
Detailed drawings of sectional views, detailed views, auxiliary views and projection views in 2D
The client approached Flatworld Solutions based on our prior experience and encouraging business related testimonials, and over the course of the initial meetings, was thoroughly impressed with our professionalism and prior project results.
Flatworld's Approach to Confronting Project Challenges
This project required thorough analysis, research, and a heads-on approach towards problem solving. The primary challenges were as follows:
Shortage of time: The project had to be completed within four and a half months. Highly detailed drawings of 1000 machine parts were to be created within that short time frame
High quality standards: The client, being one of the best in their field, required the final output to be of premium quality
Resource utilization: We had to ensure that all resources dedicated to the project met the client's specifications for quality and experience suitably
Our primary motivation was to provide results which would exceed the expectations of the client. After a few brainstorming sessions, we decided upon an all-round approach to tackle the project, which consisted of employing talented and experienced resources especially dedicated for this project. Not only was the team able to ramp-up the project speed by putting in extra hours, but did so while keeping a strict eye on the entire list of standards provided by the client for 2D detailing. This ensured that the final detailed 2D drawings successfully met all quality standards as defined by the client.
Final Project Outcome
Our efficient and transparent handling of all client requirements ensured the project was a definite success. By outsourcing to us, the client was able to save 44% in costs while receiving top-notch 2D drawing and detailing services and tolerance task analysis as per their requirements.
