The Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology (East Hartford, CT USA) and Third Wave Systems have been partners in innovation and technology for nearly 10 years. CCAT helps private and public entities apply innovative tools and practices to increase efficiency, improve workforce development and boost competitiveness. Functioning as a unique economic development organization, CCAT combines expertise in cutting-edge technology with specialized centers of excellence in manufacturing education, training, energy and entrepreneurship.  On one particular project, Third Wave Systems helped CCAT reduce cycle times for an aerospace customer’s complex, pre-existing component (pictured below).  case_ccat Approach: Import tool information, stock and workpiece materials from Mastercam into Third Wave Systems modeling software, Production Module. Then, run simulations to identify areas for improvement, define key areas for optimization and run portions of initial simulations again until desired results are achieved. 

Software: Production Module 3D

Results: 17% cycle time reduction for first operation, 20% cycle time reduction for second operation
