Early on IGB saw that manual data entry in multiple systems is time consuming and leads to unnecessary mistakes. With this problem in mind, we designed the ModelSource system.
We store all relevant data needed for FEM analysis and reporting in one application. Then using API (Application Programming Interface) the data is retrieved by the required software program. This step reduces multiple inputs, thereby greatly reducing transcription errors.
Knowing that finding modeling errors is sometimes like finding a needle in a hay stack, we decided to automate a reverse verification, or a “sanity check”. By reading back the data from the different applications, the system compares the results to the source data and any irregularities in the models are investigated.
At IGB, efficiency is a core value. Since the company’s establishment, internal processes have been analyzed, improved and where ever possible, automated. IGB’s ModelSource System is a practical example of our philosophy.
