Checks, heals, and guarantees quality of product data within I-DEAS


PDQ NP allows users to validate and repair 3D CAD data from within the PDQ Nissan Package. Implementing PDQ NP early in the design phase will help NP users at any level improve efficiency throughout the manufacturing enterprise.

You can be assured of accurate, validated CAD data at every stage of product lifecycle management (PLM).

Elysium Inc. in partnership with Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and iSiD, Co., Ltd. have developed PDQ NP Full Version and PDQ NP Check Version, ‘Product Data Quality Nissan Package’, an I-DEAS NX plug-in that provides instant CAD model checking, healing, and certification.

The PDQ NP certification is based on Nissan official CAD Quality Guidelines. PDQ NP is the first CAD Data Quality product that not only checks for topology, geometry, and manufacturability, but provides a robust tool set for automatic healing, and applies a guarantee that the inspected part meets the requirements; all within the I-DEAS NX CAD system. PDQ NP relies on Elysium’s Data Exchange Kernel Healing Module which allows for completeness in CAD Data Checking and Automated Healing within the I-DEAS NX environment.
