Software: Autodesk Showcase
The Indesit Company uses Autodesk AliasStudio and Autodesk Showcase to boost its kitchen appliance design productivity by 60 percent.
“Autodesk software products represent the ideal solution since they meet all of our requirements. By helping to centralize the revision management process, designers are able to rapidly modify surfaces, finishes, and materials, which makes the entire design evolution more dynamic. Furthermore, we are proud to have adopted these software applications at a national and international level in a sector other than automotive.”
Founded in 1975 by Vittorio Merloni, Indesit Company is considered one of the world’s leading kitchen appliance manufacturers. Its product portfolio includes innovative and stylish washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, ovens/ranges, and cooktops. With several leading brands, including Indesit, Hotpoint-Ariston, and Scholtès, Indesit Company employs 17,000 people at 17 plants and 24 business facilities worldwide.
Innovation has always been a top priority at Indesit Company, so creating products that bring more value to consumers and promote sustainable growth for Indesit have always been key concerns. Developing new features and enhancing existing product performance require a quick response to market demands and the ability to embrace opportunities provided by research and technology. To remain competitive, Indesit designers strive to develop appliances capable of providing superior performance with easy-to-use, intuitive, and straightforward technologies.
Indesit Company chose Autodesk software for its potential and scalability as well as for the high level of reliability of the Autodesk industrial design product portfolio. Indesit chose Autodesk® AliasStudio™ software for its surface modeling capabilities in the concept phase. The company chose Autodesk Showcase® software for its real-time features and uses it during the design review phase as well as for the presentation of new products.
Indesit Company has been able to radically optimize its design workflows. Armed with Autodesk AliasStudio software and Autodesk Showcase, Indesit designers have been able to save up to 60 percent of the time typically spent on concepting and up to 50 percent of the time required for creating physical prototypes. Indesit designers are able to catch potential issues early in the design process by virtually testing design options, enabling them to focus on better design up front. In addition, team members are now better able to exchange data at all phases of the process and can make reliable decisions locally and via remote sessions—resulting in an efficient and economical design review process.
