Report – Automated version comparison for Siemens NX

The Report software solution for Siemens NX automatically documents the changes between two different versions of a drawing or a PMI annotated 3D model for you. This process is often time-consuming and error-prone in industry. Report can run entirely automatically in the background, e.g. coupled to an approval process in the PLM system. This enable you to significantly speed up the process of documenting the changes to your technical drawings and 3D models and also to achieve a result that is as reliable as possible.

This ensures that full change reports are available at any time. Report shows you which parts of a drawing have changed at a glance. You can compare any number of versions with the other versions automatically.

The reports in both graphical and tabular form enable company-wide communication processes that had previously not been possible. These clearly structured processes create a higher and quicker return on investment for you. By managing changes in the PDM system, you can also access as many reports as you want at the same time, even without CAD.

An overview of the advantages for you

  • Fully-automated documentation of changes made between two or more versions of a drawing and 3D model (PMI).
  • Changes are shown in graphical and tabular form for improved readability.
  • Clear labelling of all features for improved communication with internal and external stakeholders.
  • Only “real” changes are recorded and documented as changes.

The functionality of the software

The approved drawings and 3D models are automatically assigned stamp numbers. This ensures that the feature numbering develops consistently from one version to the next. If features change, are deleted or new features are added, these are recorded and shown in graphical and tabular form. This ensures that only “real” changes are recorded and documented as changes. Features or views being moved on the drawing or in the models are not recorded as a change.

This solutions works brilliantly with the other modules so that inspection reports and change comparisons can be created using the same technology.
