Diversified Product Development
- Tripled revenue related to analysis work
- Cut simulation time by 66 percent
- Accelerated prototype testing cycles by 10 to 15 percent
- Shortened design cycles for its own products
Diversified Product Development manufactures its own line of utility and heavy equipment products, such as lifts for trucks, bulldozers, and backhoes, and provides product development consulting services to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the oil and gas, utility, military, construction, and heavy equipment industries. The Waco, Texas-based company had used Pro/MECHANICA® software for its analysis work, but needed an easier-to-use simulation tool to grow the analysis side of its consulting business.
Diversified Product Development chose SolidWorks® Simulation software because it’s easier to use, provides accurate results more quickly, and is completely integrated with SolidWorks CAD software. By selecting SolidWorks Simulation software, Diversified Product Development tripled its revenue related to analysis work, cut simulation time by 66 percent, accelerated prototype testing cycles by 10 to 15 percent, and shortened design cycles for its own products.
