With the growing complexity of engineering projects, particularly in the Aerospace and Automotive sectors, a new generation of digital engineers is required to help innovate and deliver throughout the project lifecycle. Xchanging recognizes that this continual change creates collaborative opportunities. Design, manufacturing and technology have to adapt to this changing environment in real time, mitigating risk as well as propagating the new, because that’s the way people really live. Our engineering services create order out of life’s complexity.
Xchanging encourages the convergence of systems engineering by providing custom software development for product design and testing (including CAD services) and R&D services for computer simulation using the application of CAD, CFD, FEA and CEA.
Our structured service for outsourced, end-to-end systems development reduces lengthy product lifecycles. Our integration, development, implementation and consulting provides access to flexible resources, domain expertise whilst still helping to reduce costs.
Globalization, shifting markets, raw material costs and compliance with increasingly stringent regulations makes software enabled engineering an attractive proposition for the Aerospace and Automotive markets. Xchanging is trusted to deliver comprehensive engineering technology services, leaving these customers to concentrate on what they do best; the engineering.
Life is Changing
Much like technology, modern engineering requirements are driven by life’s constant changes. The manufacture of engineering products is increasingly relied upon to support, enhance and protect our lives. From the automotive industry to the aerospace industry, every component and sub-component is designed, manufactured and installed to the highest specifications and the most exacting standards.
The trust placed in product engineering is critical throughout the manufacturing, installation and maintenance lifecycle. The technology used to enable the successful delivery of engineering in these specialist markets therefore requires an equal degree of trust. And the more engineering changes, the more trust becomes critical. It’s a responsibility that Xchanging has been proven to carry well.
Xchanging understands the underlying importance of every engineering project. It requires considerable skill and experience to take the physical challenges of an engineered product and improve its performance, function and delivery with the abstract application of software technology. But it’s the challenges in life that keep it exciting.
The relationship between the abstract and the physical is at the heart of the Xchanging engineering service delivery. Breathing life into a physical product from an idea, a sketch, a drawing or a plan is a constant challenge for our customers. But not for us, and that’s how we help. Delivering technology solutions by charting a course through the planning, design, testing and approval or certification of engineering projects is one of our proven area of expertise. We help customers by applying technology to enable streamlined and efficient processes throughout the engineering product lifecycle.
By supporting the entire lifecycle from conception, through testing and simulation to delivery, and through ongoing change management, Xchanging improves the time to market for all engineering projects thereby reducing overall costs to the customer.
Xchanging focuses its services around the engineering Bill of Material. By executing end-to-end Project Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, we optimize the impact of time and costs on the evolving Bill of Material throughout the product lifecycle.
We enable the initial data conversion of engineering products by applying Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to create 2D product plans, drawings and blueprints. With the further application of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software or Computer Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technology, we migrate the data to full 3D modeling applications for virtual testing and simulation.
The efficient development of testing software impacts the Bill of Material across the product lifecycle. By enabling Destructive Testing, for example, designs and materials can be tested early and quickly in the product development phase and changed or amended as required, without the time and expense of physical testing, whilst maintaining the assurance and reliability required to meet regulatory standards. Similarly, subsequent product or component changes can be thoroughly tested within the context of the entire Bill of Material including all associated project dependencies.
Every nut, every bolt, every part, every component, every assembly, every sub-assembly is linked to the Bill of Material by the engineering services provided by Xchanging. Our Project Lifecycle Management ensures viable, sustainable product delivery, traceable and managed within a single data repository to improve speed of delivery and reduce cost now, and in the future.
Xchanging is trusted to deliver engineering services to the most recognizable engineering brands in the world. In the aerospace and defense industries we support our customers to AS9100 quality standards. Xchanging is quite literally driving mission critical engineering solutions and keeping engineering projects flying.
