Variation Analysis (VSA) is our dimensional quality analysis that allows our customer to predict the amounts and causes of variation in their manufacturing processes. Variation Analysis is based on TeamcenterVisualization platform and therefore it provides extensive 3D prototyping capabilities including PMI support, CAD neutral flexibility and automated feature recognition.
With the highly complex products of today, dimensional variation can consume enormous amounts of time and effort to control. The specified tolerances of single parts can easily lead to issues during assembly, which is a costly time to make changes.
Variation Analysis (VSA) is a powerful dimensional analysis tool used to simulate manufacturing and assembly processes and predict the amounts and causes of variation. A digital prototype is used to create a comprehensive representation of geometry, product variation (tolerances), assembly process variation (sequence, assembly attachment definition, tooling) and measurements. This model is used to predict if there will be any assembly build problems, before any physical parts are made or tooling is cut.
Variation Analysis can help reduce the negative impact of variation on product dimensional quality, cost and time to market. Since the foundation of Variation Analysis lies within Teamcenter Lifecycle Visualization, it also extensively leverages the digital prototyping and visualization capabilities of Lifecycle Visualization Mockup, Teamcenter’s powerful real-time visualization and digital prototyping solution.
