Collaboration with the Security and Compliance you Need

Aerospace and defense contractors use comprehensive product lifecycle management tools to manage complex, multi-disciplinary design projects. The complexity of these solutions limit their effectiveness for day-to-day design collaboration. Learn how CoLab can reduce friction between project stakeholders, enhance security and standardize your design review and issue tracking process.

Enhanced Collaboration Throughout the Supply Chain

CoLab’s enterprise-level permissions allow for simple project management across internal and external stakeholders. Streamlined project organization and customized workflows facilitate collaborative program management between aerospace & defense teams, and their supply chain.

Reduce Repetitive Feedback Cycles with Guided 3D Reviews

Create dynamic 3D presentations and assign team members for review. Easily communicate design intent, identify changes and share feedback. Reviews automatically update with new file revisions, so you only have to create a review once.

Review Drawings with Unprecedented Efficiency

CoLab’s automated document and drawing reviews allow you to quickly prepare drawing review packages and share with reviewers. Here, reviewers provide feedback and markups directly on files, and approve reviews once complete. Shorten feedback cycles, and easily review documents and drawings across supply chains.

Standardize processes, automate tracking and reporting

CoLab's project dashboard allows engineers to quickly view punch-lists, filter for overdue tasks and identify areas of concern. In seconds you can search for all high priority tasks that involve a specific supplier, or incomplete tasks that originated from a specific design review.
