With generative design vendors evolving from providing inspirational designs to manufacturable designs, vendors, systems integrators and end-users need a detailed tool for comparing the costs and savings due to implementing generative design software in various deployment strategies. This detailed Total Lifetime Value Calculator (TLVC) provides that tool for Industrial Solution clients to plan and compare the best strategies for deploying generative design with the fastest payback periods and the most value over time. The TLVC determines the most likely costs and savings due to the implementation of generative design according to your company's various deployment strategies as defined in the inputs. This includes:
The TLVC helps Systems Integrators determine whether and how to include generative design in a client’s Industry 4.0 strategy, how it could fit together with CAD software and the added benefits if their client is deploying other technologies such as additive manufacturing. Also, end users can use the TVLC to understand and determine if and how to deploy generative design to get the fastest payback and the most value.
The TVLC also provides tables and charts to show how different deployment strategies will incur and accumulate expenses and savings year by year.
