CADVision, a provider of engineering software products & services, is committed to building software products that are easy to use, effective and designed for engineers to efficiently resolve engineering challenges. The company operates high in the value chain as a strategic partner and solution provider, and is based in Hyderabad, India. CADVision is one of the few Indian IT firms to develop, test and bring to market software products for the Indian & Global Markets.
CADVision Engineers was setup in 1991 to provide outsourced design &engineering services, includingProduct Design & Development, 3D Modelling & Detailing and CNC Programming to manufacturing firms. At that time CADVision was a pioneer in deploying CAD/CAM/CAE technologies and digital design, as well as being a pioneer in what is now called the Engineering Services Field.
This culture of being an innovator is reflected in some of the interesting projects completed for customers, including design of a stacker crane, design of sanitary ware, moulddesign for cooking oil containers, tool and die design, CNC programs for turbine blades and impellers, stress analysis and manufacturing drawings for weigh bridges, component drawings for agricultural tractors.
In addition to the above, CADVision Engineers also supported CADDS5 and Personal Designer customers of Prime Computers Inc all across India during the 1990s, and has served prestigious brand names such as BHEL, Ordinance Factory, ITC and Prime Computers Inc, apart from diversifying into CAD training services.
Evolution, Expansion and Growth
During the first decade of the new century (2000s) CADVision broadened its scope to include embedded systems and computer controlled machines. The company designed and developed a special purpose machine for a pharmaceutical company. This involved Mechanical design, mechanisms, and stress analysis. Electronics design, computer interface, Microcontroller based development, computer software for automatic operations without human interference. This involved Multi-disciplinary Teams also look into Visual Prototypes, Manufacturability, Electrical Control System Design and Embedded Systems and computer Interface. A patent has been applied for this project. Strategic Consolidation
In December 2010, The Company decided to change direction and focus on software product development as an outsourced solution offering. This allowed the company to leverage its strong pedigree and understanding of integrated product development and software to forge strategic partnerships and provide comprehensive software product development solutions to clients.
CADVision Engineers Today: Software Products and a Strategic Partner
In the past few years, the company has evolved as a strategic partner to international software products companies supporting their product development in the engineering domain.
Based on learning, experience and customer feedback in the domains of mechanical engineering services and software product development, the company has taken a strategic direction into developing its own engineering software product. Talking to industry veterans, the company realized that there was an opportunity to innovate and improve on the current bottom up design flow that manufacturing firms typically use for product development, CADVision Engineers felt a smarter approach was Constraint Driven Engineering Design Synthesis. This methodology innovates traditional bottom up product development by applying engineering constraints at the conceptual design stage. However, this new methodology also required a new software tool that truly allowed mathematical equations to be written that directly created constraint based conceptual design geometry. The result was CEAD, a engineering software product that has been in BETA testing for the past year and is now in production with interesting and successful user case studies.
