In a manufacturing unit, each panel requires a different type of fixturing. In this study, the design methodology corresponds to the steps followed in the conceptual design phase of fixture design. The steps involved in the design methodology, purchase order, customer input, percent complete criteria, and design output process are discussed. According to customer requirements, accessories will be planned and designed accordingly. The CAD model is designed in Catia v5 2016 with different features, and customers will provide references, such as material selection, component spacing, part naming, file orientation, software type, fixed standards, zone alignment, total assembly weight. Next, the 3D stimulation acknowledgment that may or may not be required depending on the station type. Since the geo station type has been selected for the project, the Gun motion will be stimulated. With the results, the matching model is complete. Before going to the manufacturing department, the design of the fixtures should be clearly and precisely described. All dimensions of the manufactured fittings must be indicated on the drawing. Different designs can be provided according to business requirements. Constructed on the data condition that’s given by the client, all details must be provided. 2D details shall be subject to technical drawing data. A first or third angle projection must be implemented. Top, right and front views should show all dimensions. Isometric views should provide part names and details. The bill of material will be finalized, A bill of materials (BOM) is a comprehensive inventory of the raw materials, assemblies, subassemblies, parts and components, as well as the quantities of each, needed to manufacture a product. In a nutshell, it is the complete list of all the items that are required to build a product.
