Impact of designing sector in Indian manufacturing business

Impact of designing sector

Indian manufacturing market
India is land of world’s largest young population, 47% of India’s population is below 29 years and it is increasing to 49% by 2021. We are growing younger, while China and others are ageing.  This is the advantage for the Indian manufacturing Industry.
As Make in India initiative launched by The Government of India takes off on a large scale. The country is expected to rank amongst the world’s top three growth economies and amongst the top three manufacturing destinations by 2020.
However, the challenge remains in manufacturing industry as it has to beat the global competitors like China, Japan, Germany, USA , as they are best in manufacturing technology. To overcome this problem Indian manufacturing business need to acclimatize with new emerging design technologies which will ensure that Indian enterprises remain globally competitive based on the growth trends of various industrial segments and enable them to avail new manufacturing opportunities.
Significance of Design
Designing of the product using advance technologies like CAD, CAM, CAE can help to reduce the cost as well as to manufacture the high quality product. While designing the product manufacturers need to actively think how the product can be made before manufacturing.  Rework of the manufactured product doubles the cost of the product as it involves reuse of man, machine, money and time.
CAD- Computer aided design plays important role in conceptual design using 2D drawings and 3D modelling.
CAM –Computer aided manufacturing means using machine that are controlled by computers
CAE- Computer aided engineering is uses of computer software to aid engineering analysis task. CAE helps to improve product design or assist in the resolution of engineering problems for a wide range of industries.
Below design technologies are going to have huge impact on Indian manufacturing market.
Impact of design on manufacturing
Manufacturing industries must think of rapid, efficient and flexible product development and which can be achieved by CAD, CAM, and CAE which insure complete part manufacturing solutions for designing, analysis, tooling, machining and quality inspection.
The most obvious advantage of these technologies is its speed. The manufacturing process has been shortened considerably, making design, simulation, and testing is possible with amazing speed. With the ability to send a design directly to production, manufacturers are capable of doing the changes in the design as per customer input in real time.
Reverse Engineering- Reverse engineering is going to have huge impact on manufacturing industry it can be used for many purposes; as a learning tool to understand the existing designs, way to make a new products that are cheaper than what’s currently available in the market. In reverse engineering, designer doesn’t needs to design the parts from the scratch. Now  a days, manufacturers can a buy the scanners which scans the existing parts, collect the scanned data either in mesh format or in a point cloud format. Later using scanned data user can create 3D model. Small and medium scale manufacturers can adapt this technology to enhance their design and production.
3D printing- Very soon, additive manufacturing is going to replace the subtractive manufacturing; as it heavily impacting a company’s pricing model, manufacturing of parts will be cheaper and cheaper. The costs associated with 3D printing are dropping and will likely continue to drop as more printers are available as per production requirement, and industries are adopting 3D printers on a large scale. Now a day’s 3D printing is not limited to the plastic products, mechanical components or parts which used to be cast or forged can be manufactured using 3D printing with better quality and zero defects.
Internet of Things (IoT) – The IoT has massive bang in the world of technology, and manufacturing industry is first one who has accepted the IoT’s capabilities. IoT is nothing but the networking of objects which have the connectivity,  and these objects are communicated with each other independently using the internet. Sensors are not new to manufacturing industry, and they know how to track the record of each movement and keep an eye when there is disruption. IOT can be used in inventory tracking, production data for optimizing production sequences, machine status data for predictive maintenance of the machine and so on. In short, IoT would be all about making it easier to trace all these things and eventually will help manufactures to save money, time and keep their organization ahead of the competition.
Indian manufacturers should decide how to alter a business model to better fit into available options. Combination of CAD, CAM, CAE technologies along with reverse engineering, 3D printing and IOT will keep them to stay ahead of the global market.
Design Future Insights
Rajesh believes that Graebert’s unique concept of CAD trinity – a collaboration of design on Desktop, Mobile and Cloud will help design industry to collaborate with manufacturing industry. The manufacturer can easily communicate with partners vendors via mobile and cloud.
“My vision is to create the most performance driven CAD software for design industry which will help Indian manufacturing industry to create impact on global market.
