Chemring Australia (Chemring) develops and manufactures energetic materials and products for the defense and marine safety markets, including air countermeasures, munitions, explosive ordinance disposal solutions, marine flare kits, and more. From battlefield situations and military training operations, to rescues at sea, the people who use Chemring’s products rely on them to carry out their missions safely. In fact, lives depend on Chemring’s products to perform as specified in the most dangerous conditions.

Chemring understands the importance of its products, services, and support. It is committed to continuously improving the quality of all aspects of its business. Until recently, the scope of improvement was heavily restricted by the way the company managed data.

By turning to Autodesk® Vault Professional software and Microsoft® SharePoint®, Chemring enhanced its data management processes with a higher degree of control, automation, and flexibility.

Since adopting Vault Professional along with Autodesk® Inventor® software, both of which are part of the Autodesk® Product Design Suite, Chemring has been able to:

  • Efficiently share design information with the extended enterprise, thanks to integration with Microsoft SharePoint
  • Create a bill of materials (BOM) in 2 hours instead of 2 days
  • Enhance the way it manages individual product design files, saving hours of data management for every new design and significant revision
  • Reduce duplicate work and the risk of errors
