Save a significant amount of time for your teams!

With Infra CONVERT, avoid mistakes while copying dimensions or specifications in your FMEA studies! 

The Infra CONVERT module allows you to open a CAD drawings, to analyze it, and then automatically extract all dimensions you want (dimensional and geometrical specifications).

Then characteristics will be used to:

  • your Design FMEA: the characteristic complements the functional analysis to identify customer requirements
  • your Process FMEA: use dimensional and geometrical specifications as inputs of your Process FMEA to accurately identify failure modes
  • following the Process FMEA, the control plan is built with the imported characteristics
  • work instruction which is based on the control plan
  • control range being based on the control plan, information is followed from the customer plan to your control strategy.

CAD to FMEA: key points of Infra CONVERT

  • Ensure feature recognition rates up to 100%. You can retrieve specifications without error with just a few mouse clicks using the previously loaded symbol tables.
  • Always do the link with quality documentation thanks to numbered marker on your drawings. Marking allows you to maintain a dynamic overview. By comparing plan versions, you can easily evaluate the impacts without having to start from scratch
  • Reduce the time required to process plan’s data by up to 70%.
  • Integrate Infra CONVERT as a module in a CAD system.
  • User interface is intuitive and reduces training time.

Which extractions are available from CAD?

  • List of specifications selected to be processed later in FMEA, in the Control Plan or in the Work instruction, or even in MS Excel.
  • Marked plan (stamp) is available as a PDF File or as a picture that may be integrated in the work instruction.
  • Structured decomposition of the specification: stamp number, type (variable, attributive), value, class, category, designation, nominal size, upper and lower tolerance, tolerance class, and reference (isostatic).

What are CAD drawings managed by Infra CONVERT?

  • Drawings in an exchange CAD format (DWG, DXF or IGES)
  • Drawings in another format (PDF, TIFF, PNG, …)
  • The drawing composition does not matter: regardless of the number of boards or the density of specifications.
