Inventor Spearheads JCM Seating Into New Markets

Formed in 1992, Lincolnshire based JCM has quickly grown to become one of the UKs leading manufacturers of specialized seating. It has established a strong presence in the healthcare and social services sectors and now exports to some 16 countries around the world. JCM Seating Solutions has found Inventor to be the ideal design tool to spearhead its drive into new markets.

The Challenge

Prior to taking on Inventor up to 30 percent of the working day was taken up with managing the design, even a small change had to be carried through to at least three or four drawings. Inevitably this was prone to problems of omission and error which took up time that could have been better used for creating new designs.

Why Autodesk?

JCM has long experience of working with AutoCAD and when they saw a demonstration of 3D modelling it open their eyes to the possibilities of how they could improve the quality of both their design and communication with their customers. After extensive market research they finally decided that Autodesk Inventor Series was best suited to solving the design challenges they faced. Importantly they also saw the move to solid modelling in terms of a long-term investment and Autodesk gave them the confidence of a very clear roadmap regarding Inventor's planned development. At the same time, as a sister product on a similar platform to their existing AutoCAD software, the transition to 3D modelling was likely to be much smoother.

The Benefits

"In the short time since we adopted the new Autodesk software, we have been able to develop and launch at least five major new products."
