Deliver Projects On Time, Reduce Expensive Change Orders

The design of machinery and equipment requires effective collaboration of a multidisciplinary team. Bring together internal, external and non-technical project stakeholders during the design review process. CoLab helps you navigate efficiently from client requirements to a completed project.

“We don’t do design reviews as often as we should because they are so cumbersome and take a long time. Their solution is simple and powerful.”
- Engineering Director at Fortune 500 Industrial Equipment and Service Provider

Simplified CAD Access with Industry-Leading Security

CoLab’s powerful web viewing technology allows engineers to review 3D models and drawings without needing expensive CAD software, or having to share native CAD data. CoLab’s enterprise security ensures seamless accessibility, while maintaining best-in-class data protection.

Share Dynamic 3D Reviews Across Multidisciplinary Teams

Create dynamic 3D presentations and assign team members for review. Easily communicate design intent, identify changes and share feedback. CoLab automatically updates reviews as files get revised, so you only have to create a review once.

Review Drawings with Unprecedented Efficiency 

CoLab’s automated document and drawing reviews allow teams to quickly prepare drawing review packages and share with reviewers. Here, reviewers can provide feedback and markups directly on files, and approve reviews once complete. Shorten feedback cycles, and streamline review with internal and external stakeholders.

Track Designs and Changes into Manufacturing

Extend 3D review and issue tracking into production with integrated assembly instructions, embedded product manufacturing information and CoLab’s mobile application. Engineers create dynamic, data-rich work instructions to communicate with production. Production technicians communicate manufacturing issues by easily taking pictures, tying them to the exact part, and assigning an engineer - all from CoLab’s mobile application.

Standardize Processes, Automate Tracking and Reporting

CoLab's customizable workflows enable engineering teams to establish project milestones, and automate review cycles. From the CoLab dashboard, engineers can quickly view upcoming reviews, 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.
