- Cut electrical design time by 50 percent
- Reduced electrical cabinet sizes by 25 percent
- Improved quality of schematics
- Reduced errors through automated BOM creation
GLSV, Inc. has leveraged its extensive noise and vibration engineering experience in the defense, marine, automotive, off-highway, and recreation vehicle markets to become the go-to firm for solving acoustics, vibration, and shock-related problems. GLSV has relied on SOLIDWORKS® Professional and SOLIDWORKS Premium software for the mechanical design of its noise/vibration test systems since 2004, with electrical schematics created in Microsoft® Visio® 2D software. In 2012, the company evaluated available 3D electrical design solutions to improve the efficiency and quality of test system development and fabrication.
The company chose SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D™ software because it’s easy to use, automatically generates BOM data, improves the quality of 3D electrical schematics, and integrates directly with SOLIDWORKS mechanical design solutions. By implementing SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D, GLSV cut electrical design time by 50 percent, reduced electrical cabinet sizes by 25 percent, improved the quality of electrical schematics, and reduced errors through automated BOM creation.
