In early 2016, an innovation-driven CADblanche technical team was approached by FP McCann. It was asked to develop automated engineering tools for a new product range within the FP McCann Group. The target? That FP McCann can automatically control the production of the MLSC (Large Sized Chambers) and MPS (Panel Systems) and use the models for customer and production benefits. The CADblanche framework is used to automatically generate the BIM for Production (BIMfP). FP McCann can not only control machines with this data, but also communicate directly with the customers and generate in minutes a first concept model. The automation is set up in such a way that the sales team can fill in the parameters for their specific construction concept, which corresponds to the most efficient production method but with respect for the customer’s wishes for the design.
