- Improved informational quality of assembly instructions
- Updated assembly instructions automatically with design changes
- Reduced assembly questions on shop floor substantially
Wamore, Inc. manufactures airdrop systems for securely delivering payloads of up to 42,000-pounds from cargo aircraft to the ground via ram-air parachute. The U.S. military uses the company’s Air Guidance Units, parachute release systems, inertia reels, and soft landing airbags in active combat theaters. While Wamore has benefited from using SolidWorks® design, simulation, and product data management (PDM) solutions for several years, providing assembly instructions for its autonomous, robotic-controlled airdrop systems and other product lines presented a range of problems.
To address these issues and improve its assembly documentation function, Wamore acquired SolidWorks Composer™ technical communications software. By implementing SolidWorks Composer, Wamore shortened its assembly instructions development time by 85 percent, improved the informational quality of its assembly instructions, updated its assembly instructions automatically to support design changes, and reduced the number of assembly questions on the shop floor substantially.
