Manufacturing Work Instructions for Cortona3D Software

Cortona3D products facilitate concurrent product and documentation development and speed time to market. Cortona3D RapidWorkInstruction allows you to create manufacturing work instructions as interactive 3D animations, providing assembly workers with visual explanations in a work instruction that save time and reduces the risk of cost incurred due to quality exceptions.

  • Flexibly configure documentation by product variant or language

Work instructions prepared in 30-40% of the time it takes today

Cortona3D RapidWorkInstruction facilitates the rapid creation of digital interactive work instructions, job cards and assembly instructions directly from CAD-geometry masters, delivering reductions in the resources needed to create manufacturing work instructions of 60-70%.

Work instructions as interactive 3D content and as 2D print-friendly information

Multiple types of information can be combined and accessed in the work instructions you produce, including CAD drawings, 3D models, data sheets, library parts, health and safety information, photos, and so on, to ensure the work is completed quickly, correctly and safely every time. 2D CGM images can also be created and edited, and assimilated into printable or online documentation work instruction formats established for your business

S1000D and DITA compliant

2D or 3D output from Cortona3D RapidWorkInstruction can be automatically configured to comply with S1000D, DITA or a variety of other recognised standards.

Export a 3D animated set of work instructions from an MBOM in minutes

Because RapidWorkInstruction re-uses content direct from engineering CAD, you can create an entire set of work instruction animations from a pre-prepared Manufacturing Bill of Materials (or MBOM) – in minutes – or you can use RapidWorkInstruction to quickly create an MBOM as well as a Bill of Process.

Unambiguous step-by-step procedure reviews

Cortona3D RapidWorkInstruction’s interactive documentation format also allows assembly workers to interrogate the defined procedures on a step-by-step basis. Users are intuitively guided through the mechanical processes, and can zoom, rotate and analyse the 3D data, and pause, rewind or rerun the process as needed.

Convert work instructions to SCORM-compliant training content

The Cortona3D tool suite supports data reuse and common authoring between different deliverables such as manufacturing work instructions and online interactive 3D e-learning materials, allowing you to quickly and easily convert work instruction content to SCORM-compliant training content.

Keep your documentation in line with the latest design releases

The Cortona3D toolset also acts as a change-control engine to help you ensure that your work instruction information is always concurrent with the latest design releases and running changes. With Cortona3D new design iterations will always be instantly drawn to the attention of your manufacturing engineers and can be integrated into work instruction information in minutes.

Flexibly configure documentation by product variant or language

Combining the Cortona3D suite with Siemens’ Teamcenter Content Management System solution allows you to categorise any element of work instruction content against effectivity windows and release and obsolescence dates, against any complexity of product variant, against language, against published documents in which it will be included, and even against individual product identification numbers, allowing you to provide fault-free delivery of work instruction information to your assembly workers exactly when they need it.
