Leader in Wind Technology Employs CETOL 6 Sigma Solution for Enhanced Robust Design and Quality Production
McKinney, Texas February 18, 2014
World leader in wind energy, Vestas Wind Systems A/S, has selected Sigmetrix' CETOL 6 Sigma tolerance analysis solution and Sigmetrix' GD&T Advisor as an integral part of its robust design and quality production initiative called Dimensional Management. This program is part of Vestas' ongoing commitment to the development and production of cost effective, reliable, powerful wind turbines used to generate sustainable, wind energy worldwide.
"As a leader in wind turbine manufacturing, robustness and quality is of the outmost importance to us and vital to the industry as the demand for more cost effective, reliable, green sources of energy continues to increase," remarked Vestas Vice President of Engineering Integration Carl Erik Skjølstrup. "CETOL 6 Sigma and GD&T Advisor will play an integral part in improving our design robustness and the quality of wind energy solutions as well as optimizing our design and manufacturing goals. We look forward to working with Sigmetrix and ARIADNE as we initiate the enhancements to our R&D and quality production program for Dimensional Management."
CETOL 6 Sigma tolerance analysis software provides product development teams with the insight required to confidently release designs to manufacturing. Precise calculation of surface sensitivities exposes the critical-to-quality dimensions in the assembly. Utilizing advanced mathematical solutions, this tolerance analysis solution accelerates optimization to achieve robust designs ready for manufacturing.
"CETOL 6 Sigma is the dominant solution for variation analysis in many industries," stated Sigmetrix President Chris Wilkes. "We're excited to be incorporated into Vestas' quality enhancement program and look forward to our involvement in the planning and manufacturing of their green energy solution products. We are proud to be partnering with ARIADNE Engineering as we assist Vestas with the integration of a complete GD&T and tolerance analysis solution into the design process."
