Clutch Product Rapid Variant Design Based on Tabular Layouts of Article Characteristics


Article Preview

Based on intensive study to variant design method in product parametric technology,the paper put forward to rapid design system which have been successes used in clutch company, The tabular layouts of article characteristics describe standardization and regularization information of product , can expediently implement the product variant design and variant response of downstream process. The method firstly computes clutch parameters according to outside requirement, then inquired if there is existed product, then decided whether to design a new product or get original product. After this process, then acquire the product main model, which can abstain geometric model and realize some other analysis and virtual simulation, at last, generated satisfying product. The method in this paper have been successful used in clutch company’s design process, and highly improve it’s products creation ability and products competition in market.
