Employing a deep understanding of Siemens’ software
Located in Seoul, South Korea, SPACE Solution serves the automotive, transportation and shipbuilding industries for large and mid-sized companies. The company specializes in providing customers with 3D computer-aided design (CAD) solutions using NX™ software and manufacturing solutions using the Tecnomatix® portfolio. These solutions are part of the Siemens Xcelerator business platform of software, hardware and services. The company’s goal is to contribute to the success of their customers’ businesses by improving the quality of their products, shortening their development periods and increasing their profits.
SPACE Solution provides unparalleled customer support through an extensive customer training program. Its experts have a deep understanding of Siemens’ software and can evaluate each customer’s specific requirements to help them solve their critical business challenges by recommending the most effective digital solutions. SPACE Solution improves customer productivity and efficiency by using its experience and knowledge to develop and provide customized product design automation tools using NX application programming interface (API).
Using NX to automate processes and reduce development time
One of SPACE Solution’s customers is a large shipbuilding company. This customer was facing several issues with its hull design process including inefficient design and rising costs due to manual processes. These challenges prevented them from validating the hull shape design and conducting meaningful optimization analyses. The entire design had to be changed every time a parameter was adjusted, which increased the cost and delayed the process.
SPACE Solution has deep knowledge and experience with NX and its parametric curve and surface technology. This technology automates linear shape change and control, which enables customers to make continuous design changes to existing hull designs with no additional cost.
The changes are automatically applied to the form design with the necessary optimization analysis. This reduces the time required for development and design changes by over 10 percent compared to previous models.
Strengthening global competitiveness through digitalization
Another SPACE Solution customer developing high-end healthcare products was experiencing significant scheduling delays due to design issues in the early stages of product development.
SPACE Solution recommended using NX for design to improve product development processes. Using the comprehensive digital twin and optimizing automated design processes enabled SPACE Solution’s customer to provide deeper insight into the design process quickly while avoiding and reacting to bottlenecks. They could make smarter and faster decisions by transforming the product development process. Accordingly, it strengthened its global competitiveness by shortening the product development period and speeding up product launches.
Preparing for the future
SPACE Solution continues to expand its team of expert engineers by leveraging Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio. From product design to production technology, the company aims to serve its core industries across all aspects of product development. “We understand how much our close relationship with Siemens is helping our business,” states Eun-Deok Joo, chief executive officer (CEO) of SPACE Solution. “Siemens’ strong support is the key to the growth and success of SPACE Solution.”
Joo adds that the future of SPACE Solution’s growth and success will depend on the success of the business model transformation. Minsun Son, general manager of sales at SPACE Solution, states, “I believe SPACE Solution’s team of professional engineers can continue to grow and expand in the subscription and SaaS business models.” Son is confident the company will continue to work closely with Siemens to establish success in these new markets and strive to be an example for other partners making the transition to subscription and software-as-a-service (SaaS) models.
