- Met market demands for shorter lead-times
- Eliminated costs related to 2D and part searches
- United five engineering groups under one revision scheme and workflow
- Facilitated collaboration and design reuse
PaR Systems, Inc., is a world leader in providing highly engineered equipment, systems, and services for critical application, and is the manufacturer of choice for systems that handle hazardous and radioactive materials. Until 2005, PaR used AutoCAD® 2D and MicroStation® wireframe design tools to develop its systems but needed to move to 3D to respond to market demands for shorter lead-times.
PaR chose SolidWorks® solutions, implementing SolidWorks Standard CAD, SolidWorks Professional design, SolidWorks Premium design and analysis, SolidWorks Simulation Professional analysis, SolidWorks Workgroup PDM product data management, and 3DVIA Composer technical communications software. . More recently, the company acquired SolidWorks Enterprise PDM and DraftSight® 2D drawing software. PaR chose SolidWorks solutions because of their ease of use and integration, and DraftSight software because it significantly reduces the costs of 2D operations. By selecting SolidWorks solutions, PaR met market demands for shorter lead-times, reduced costs related to operating 2D and part searches, united its five engineering groups under one revision scheme and common workflows.
