Boston Group, Inc., manufactures a complete line of display, power, and protection products for retail merchandising display applications. In 2000, the display manufacturer decided to upgrade its AutoCAD® 2D design tools to a 3D development system to streamline its development and fabrication processes and to better showcase product concepts to merchandising professionals.
Boston Group chose SolidWorks® product development solutions, acquiring SolidWorks Standard design and SolidWorks Premium design and analysis software. The company selected SolidWorks because it is easy to use; includes integrated sheet metal design, structural analysis, and photorealistic rendering tools; and provides access to beneficial partner solutions, such as SheetWorks sheet metal fabrication and nesting software. By implementing SolidWorks solutions, Boston Group has accelerated delivery of product to customers by 80 percent, shortened conceptual design cycles by 50 percent, cut sheet metal fabrication time by 25 percent, and eliminated prototyping for new products.
