DESIGN ENGINEERING AUTOMATION FOR HIGHLY CONFIGURABLE PRODUCTS
Knowledge Bridge enables evolutionary product design. By capturing knowledge and decision-making from earlier tests and trials, kBridge speeds development of subsequent design iterations. When the product launches, a configuration solution already exists so your products reach markets faster and with less friction.
A TYPICAL DESIGN ENGINEERING CYCLE AND COMMON QUESTIONS
How can I improve our overall product design and engineering process?
Can I recruit others to solve these engineering questions and calculations?
How can we increase the product quality and reliability?
Can I remove the tedium and grunt work from engineering activities?
Is there an easier way to produce all of the supporting documentation?
Can I add features and options without introducing unwanted complexity?
How can I offload some of my work to newer, less-experienced colleagues?
KNOWLEDGE BRIDGE FREES ENGINEERS TO DO MORE FULFILLING, INTERESTING, AND REWARDING WORK
THE SIMPLICITY OF EXCEL BUT USING 3D PRODUCT MODELS AND ASSEMBLY STRUCTURE
Power far beyond spreadsheets
Knowledge Bridge operates a lot like Excel. But unlike Excel, kBridge adds built-in hierarchical product models, a native ability to identify and drive top-level design parameters, and best of all, fast, simple-to-use 3D graphics.
Knowledge Bridge makes it easy to build "little solvers" -- utilities that help you do your work.
ELIMINATE TEDIUM WITH SIMPLE, ROBUST ENGINEERING TOOLS
Use a set of tools that think the way you do
Don't do the same, boring, tedious operation for the nth time. Build those operations into an automated kBridge solution. From then on out, you can solve it in moments and use your time for more interesting and challenging work.
Knowledge Bridge is great for creating engineering-based, 3D macros. Capture your knowledge in a simple model, then re-use it any time you need it in the future.
You don't have to worry about disrupting your work to capture and grow your knowledge base of engineering design capabilities. Knowledge Bridge enables you to explore options and incrementally improve your product solution through design iteration.
Better yet, enterprise engineering knowledge captured in kBridge doesn't walk out the door every night. It can be shared and incrementally improved. Best of all, it can be passed on over the years as you train new engineers.
GROW YOUR ENGINEERING KNOWLEDGE BASE INCREMENTALLY AND EASILY
Knowledge Bridge supports evolutionary product design
GENERATE DOCUMENTATION BY COMBINING CUSTOM CONTENT WITH BOILERPLATE MATERIALS
When they ask for documentation, let them believe you spent hours
Are you responsible for helping the production department? The shipping department? The marketing department? The sales people?
kBridge can generate customized documents based on automatically-engineered models – and it will do this with less effort that you’d need just to open Word or Excel.
