Razorleaf Helps AMF Bowling Score a Strike with SmarTeam

The equipment behind the scenes in bowling alleys is often complex and comprised of thousands of distinct parts. The pinspotter alone includes more than 3,800 different parts. A lack of organization was causing chaos and costing the company valuable time to market.

To help the company’s engineers manage the complexity of finding parts and designing new ones, the company partnered with Razorleaf Corporation, experts in product data management (PDM). Razorleaf helped the company bring order to the chaos by assisting with the implementation of ENOVIA SmarTeam PDM software and customizing the software to meet the company’s needs.

Razorleaf Helps Nuclear Power Toolmaker Use PDM Tools to Speed New Product Design

AREVA, a global provider of nuclear power services, plays a critical role in maintaining the nation’s 103 nuclear reactors, each of which is unique. As a result, the company must be able to quickly create new tools and custom-designed equipment to meet service requests, which are often unanticipated, and perform maintenance operations during scheduled shutdowns to avoid downtime. In addition to the quick turnaround of new tools, the company must also maintain accurate up-to-date documentation to abide by stringent industry regulations.

To help meet these demands, the company turned to Razorleaf to help them implement ENOVIA SmarTeam product data management (PDM) software. The software’s search capabilities helped AREVA quickly locate existing designs to use as a starting point for new designs. In addition, the SmarTeam’s revision management features enable the company to assess all versions of designs, who made what changes and when, which is extremely important for the company’s regulatory review process.
