Lectra announces the launch of new versions of DesignConcept Auto (V4R1) and DesignConcept TechTex (V4R1), dedicated to the automotive industry and to manufacturers using industrial fabrics.

DesignConcept Auto and DesignConcept TechTex are Lectra's flagship solutions for textile-based product design and development. Equipped with this solution, users can create virtual models, run feasibility analyses, develop templates, and estimate costs, resulting in reduced time-to-market of finished products.

One of the many significant benefits of these new versions is their automatic marker-making module which calculates estimates of fabric consumption and related costs according to the customer's business model. These calculations are carried out during the design phase and hence very early in the design and development process.

With DesignConcept Auto and DesignConcept TechTex, Lectra alone offers the automotive and industrial fabrics industry this particularly innovative approach.

The new automatic marker-making module provides project leaders with valuable and detailed information about the different fabric savings possible for each design option, thus allowing them to make the wisest decisions. When this module is used in conjunction with feasibility analyses, companies equipped with DesignConcept can shorten production cycle times through perfect project management with respect to the business model chosen initially and to the company's main criteria—cost, quality, time-to-market.

With the new DesignConcept Auto and DesignConcept TechTex offers, costs are no longer imposed but foreseen and managed.

"We developed these new versions in order to offer a novel approach to product development, giving designers more responsibility by providing them with improved visibility over the economic implications of their decisions," said Daniel Harari, CEO, Lectra. "This means they can make a more direct contribution to their company's performance."

DesignConcept Auto: a response to specifically address the needs of manufacturers in the automotive market

Taking the recent changes in the automotive sector into consideration, Lectra engineers have developed concepts that accelerate decision-making to help cope with the increasing customer demand for greater numbers and heightened complexity of interior and seat models. Equipped with DesignConcept Auto (V4R1), designers can offer up to five times more virtual models than before, using the simulation tools, while accessing necessary information for quality evaluation and corresponding cost management.

"With DesignConcept Auto V4R1 we have finally been able to enter a new phase of synchronized prototyping and costing. Now we can modify designs while verifying the related cost implications. This also means we can consider more designs," said Katuyuki Matsushita, General Manager, Engineering Division, Toyota Boshoku (Japan).
