FWS Provided Multilingual CAD Conversion Services to a Leading Dutch Industrial Equipment Manufacturer
The client, a leading industrial equipment manufacturer, is based in the Netherlands and has 20 international locations. They design, manufacture, and install a diverse collection of industrial products such as lifting platforms, dock levelers, and industrial doors. The client has been operating for over five decades.
Client Requirements and Challenges
The client wanted multilingual CAD drawing conversions to support manufacturing plants throughout Asia and Europe. The required languages were French, Russian, Polish, German, and English. To accomplish this, the client needed experienced CAD designers who were also proficient in the designated foreign languages.
The project involved these primary challenges -
PDF drawings used as the basis for new CAD drawings were old and not legible
Drawings needed to be completely accurate and meet industry standards in all languages
After understanding the client requirements and analyzing the project challenges, the Flatworld Solutions CAD drawing specialists developed this solution -
The team included an account manager, three drafters, and one quality analyst
A communication strategy was developed at an early point - this facilitated filling in information gaps due to illegible PDF drawings
Team members coordinated with multilingual data entry specialists to ensure that terminology met industry guidelines in each language
The client initially needed 29 blueprints converted to digitized CAD drawings. These were completed in accordance with client guidelines within four working days
Final Results - 29 Multilingual CAD Drawings in 4 Days
This ongoing project illustrates a combination of three elements that are common in many assignments completed successfully by the Flatworld Solutions (FWS) team - illegible vintage blueprints or drawings, a requirement for precise use of multiple languages and a need for deliverables that satisfy international manufacturing standards. The advanced capability of the FWS team to excel in the handling of all three challenges was instrumental in the client's decision to outsource this project to FWS and to continue working with Flatworld Solutions.
