ABCO Automation, Inc., develops fast, reliable, and cost-effective automation solutions for packaging products, such as its four-head filler, which processes 60 bags of liquid soap per minute for refillable dispensers. The company provides comprehensive industrial automation and fabrication services to manufacturers in a variety of industries. Having experienced dramatic growth, ABCO needed an integrated product data management system to manage its expansion.
After evaluating several PDM packages, including Autodesk Vault®, EDS Teamcenter®, and SolidWorks Enterprise PDM software, ABCO chose the SolidWorks Enterprise PDM system because it is more tightly integrated with SolidWorks CAD software, includes better administration tools, could be installed in days, could be implemented in weeks, and has more capability than the other packages. By choosing SolidWorks Enterprise PDM, ABCO has shortened its design cycles by 30 percent, accelerated time-to-market by 20 percent, reduced its development costs by 20 percent, and cut its scrap and rework costs by 50 percent.
