(PRESCIENT-TECHNOLOGIES) Prescient's New DesignQA Software Assures
Better Product Quality
BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 26, 1997--Prescient Technologies
today announced a major design quality assurance breakthrough with
the release of its DesignQA software for the CATIA CAD/CAM
platform. Incomplete or incorrect CAD model data are the cause of
expensive delays and redesigns in the product development process.
Problems often arise from inconsistent CAD practices. With
increasingly complex models, even the most experienced design
engineers cannot foresee all the problems that may arise when the
model has gone on to other stages in the development process.
DesignQA for CATIA works from within CATIA, the leading three-
dimensional solid modeling CAD system from Dassault Systems.
DesignQA facilitates the implementation of a wide spectrum of
CATIA design standards, ranging from unnecessary geometry to
incorrect naming conventions. Pre-configured with over 75 design
quality assurance categories to analyze the overall integrity of
the model data, DesignQA streamlines the entire product development
process by helping all CAD users create better models early in the
design process. Working both as a quality assurance advisor and a
training tool, DesignQA recommends corrective actions or
automatically corrects problems. The CATIA user can create better
models in less time with early insight and model correction
capabilities provided by DesignQA.
About the Product:
DesignQA is flexible and designed to be easily configured for
company-specific standards and project guidelines. Configurable
features such as: model quality assurance analysis criteria, and
the ability to activate/deactivate and group quality assurance
categories, provide the flexibility required to easily use DesignQA
at all stages of design engineering for any design project.
DesignQA addresses key manufacturing concerns and offers
practical advice for identified problems in CAD model areas such
- Draw Mode Quality
- Model Geometry
- Layers and Filters
- Model Graphics Standards
- Syntax Testing
- Element Listing
