CWA Constructions SA/Corp. is a Swiss developer, manufacturer, and distributor of cabin and vehicle systems. CWA is a world leader in gondola and cable car cabins for funiculars, monorails, and shuttles.
CWA employs PRO.FILE to manage its product data, versions, and revisions and to control its development and manufacturing processes. The solution has enabled the company to automatically create bills of materials and where-used lists from its CAD models and to take a systematic approach to their change and variant management.
CWA has implemented a change and approval process for its prototype and series production that is managed by a PRO.FILE-driven workflow. This ensures that production approval is not granted without proper review.
“We knew from the start that using 3D CAD for our variant design, which is of particular importance to CWA, would only deliver significant advantages over the previously used 2D system if we were to pair it with a powerful product data management system and new business processes.” Tobias Haarmann, project manager, CWA Constructions SA/Corp.
