Research of Variant Design Method for Product-Level
To solve the problem such as large amounts of repeated designs and long design cycle in the traditional design process of crane, by analyzed the current variant design methods, a product-level variant design method was presented based on product configuration technology, parametric design technology and modular product design. The theory and the flow of variant design were explained in detail. A variant design platform for portal crane was developed. Based on making the best of enterprise resource, the product design efficiency was improved and the cost of the production reduced.
