Legendary Help: Powering the Future of the Automotives Industry

The world is rapidly changing. Artificial intelligence and robotics are taking over industries and powering new solutions to help make our lives easier. Automotives are one industry where technology is helping to power innovative new solutions, including assisted driving technologies and self-driving cars. This is dramatically altering the way we move.

Working behind the scenes to redefine how people relax, work, and play in their vehicles is a Rocket client. As a true trailblazer, this client works on automotive interior experiences. They help hundreds of companies and thousands of individuals to create winning designs while supporting robust manufacturing capabilities. 

The Challenge

With the automotive industry rapidly changing, this company was experiencing unprecedented growth. Previously relying on spreadsheets to manage users and design information, these strategies were becoming increasingly unsustainable. Furthermore, as automotive interior designs often interact with carmakers’ intellectual property—and represent valuable IP on their own—the supplier’s automotive partners began requiring layers of security that spreadsheets simply couldn’t handle. They quickly realized they needed new technology solutions that would help them manage their data. 

The company’s tedious and error-prone manual data exchange processes cost the designers thousands of hours per year. This equated to multiple full-time employees on payroll doing nothing but collecting and sending data. In order to reduce costs and errors, the company began searching for a new solution. Like most other industrial design businesses, this company relied on computer-aided design software to create and store their automotive interior designs. The company needed a solution that could take their CAD files, which are notoriously complex in structure, and integrate them with their product lifecycle management (PLM) software.

The Solution: TRUfusion™

The automotive interiors company finally decided on Rocket®  TRUfusion™ Enterprise to manage their user and design data. TRUfusion Enterprise was designed expressly for the needs of large manufacturing operations that rely on global supply chains. It supports collaborative design, and can help prevent errors and reduce risks by replacing manual data exchanges with a single automated process. It can also easily integrate with other systems, such as CAD, through this automated exchange of data.

By implementing TRUfusion, the company’s designers were able to focus on their primary goals—making their clients’ ideas come to life. They could respond to quotes, change requests and other iterative steps throughout the product life cycle more efficiently, while delivering truly collaborative design experiences for their customers. 

With TRUfusion Enterprise’s out-of-the-box support and solutions, implementation was simple and quick for the company. With the PLM systems, as well as the capability to translate CAD data into different formats, TRUfusion handled everything with ease. Collaboration between employees has been easy, and data integrity is not lost in the exchange of files between employees and customers.

The company can now rest easy, knowing TRUfusion Enterprise monitors and logs every file processing and exchange step automatically to generate a complete audit trail. Along with increased efficiency, this client gained the ability to have a single source for all data.
