Zhongli impressed by the latest version of DesignConcept

The famed Chinese furniture brand agreed to serve as a pilot site for the new version of Lectra’s virtual prototyping and product development software. The Vice General Manager and the Product Development Manager share their impressions.

DesignConcept V5R1: Increased productivity, flexibility and user comfort

DesignConcept Furniture is Lectra’s powerful 3D/2D virtual prototyping, preliminary costing and digital product development solution. With DesignConcept, furniture brands and manufacturers can reduce the number of needed physical prototypes, ensure design feasibility and secure product profitability. The latest version of the all-in-one solution, which covers styling through to upholstered furniture manufacturing, goes even further in helping companies “make it right the first time”. The new release expands DesignConcept’s styling and modeling features, automates more tasks and offers even greater productivity-enhancing features. Interfaces are also more intuitive for easy, flexible use and quicker solution learning.


Zhongli chooses to serve as pilot site

Zhongli first began using DesignConcept in order to cope with increased customer demand for new styles and ever-shorter delivery times. After Zhongli Furniture adopted DesignConcept 3D, the volume of physical samples and sampling iterations decreased by up to 50%.

Due to its previous, positive experience with DesignConcept and Lectra in general, Zhongli responded with an enthusiastic yes when Lectra asked if the company would like to serve as a pilot site for the newest version of DesignConcept.


Fueling business growth with the new DesignConcept

The latest version of DesignConcept provides an improved 3D to 2D pattern update process and definition of 3D/2D pattern characteristics. These, among other changes made to the virtual prototyping and product development software, will help Zhongli boost productivity and accelerate time to market.

Zhongli’s Vice General Manager believes that using the latest version of DesignConcept could be an asset in helping the company achieve its business goal of increasing growth by 30% by enabling the company to increase the number of products it develops and improve the efficiency of its product development process.
