CATIA Value Analysis/Value Engineering (VAVE): A Design and Outsourcing Case Study

CCE helped a leading, multi-national appliance manufacturer whose key products include vacuum cleaners, washers, dryers, refrigerators, dishwashers among other things with new product design using CATIA V5.
The customer wanted to outsource their engineering product design and specific Value Analysis/Value Engineering (VAVE) projects to a reliable partner with proven CATIA design experience. The goal was to design a new variant of an existing “Handheld” and “Stick” type vacuum cleaner, based on the aesthetic profile provided by the customer’s industrial design team. Industrial design surfaces derived from concept sketches were given as input to design the new Stick/Handheld type vacuum cleaner in CATIA V5.
