Background

A US-based thermal plant enterprise approached Srushty ES on a significant project to provide 3D refinement and 2D drafting services. The project’s primary objectives were to deliver continuous project support and ongoing cost-effective design solutions.

Objectives

  • Continuous project support
  • Ongoing delivery of cost-effective design solutions

Achievements

By the end of one month, we achieved a whopping 15% cost reduction for the client. This cost-saving measure enabled the customer to scale up operations without needing additional resource allocation.

Approach and Methodology

Here are the key activities that led to the successful implementation of the project:

  1. 3D Modeling and 2D Drawing
    • Utilized SolidWorks to create detailed 3D models and 2D drawings that adhered to industry standards.
    • Ensured precision and accuracy in designs to facilitate seamless integration and implementation.
  2. Assembly Drawing, Power Drawing, and General Arrangement (GA) Drawing
    • Developed comprehensive assembly drawings that illustrated the construction and assembly of components.
    • Created power drawings to map out the electrical configurations and power requirements.
    • Produced GA drawings to provide an overall view of the project’s layout and components.
  3. Design for Manufacturing (DFM) and Design for Assembly (DFA)
    • Employed DFM and DFA principles to optimize the design for ease of manufacturing and assembly, reducing production time and costs.
    • Streamlined the mechanism design to enhance functionality and efficiency.
  4. Physical Parameter Calculations
    • Conducted thorough physical parameter calculations to ensure the structural integrity and performance of the design.
    • Assessed factors such as load-bearing capacity, stress distribution, and thermal properties.
  5. Material Selection and Bill of Materials (BoM) Optimization
    • Optimized the BoM to ensure cost-effectiveness and availability of materials.

The one-month achievement led to continuous engagement for several months, achieving significant cost reduction and enabling the client to scale their operations without incurring additional resource costs.
