CSR Corporation Limited （CSR）is an “innovative enterprise” awarded by Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China, and it is also the largest rail transportation equipment manufacturer in China. It owns four national R&D and experiment institutions including national engineering center of converting technology, national engineering laboratory of high-speed train system integration, national key laboratory of EMU and locomotive traction and control and national research center of high-speed EMU assembly engineering technology, six national nationally accredited corporate technical centers, seven test and experimental centers accredited by China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment and six postdoctoral workstations, and it has established the first overseas industrial power and electronic R&D center of China’s rail transit equipment manufacturing in the U.S. and a semiconductor R&D centers in the UK.
CSR industrial park, which is located in Yinzhou District, Ningbo, gathers five related technical and manufacturing units of CSR. As one of CSR’s manufacturing bases, Ningbo CSR industrial park has introduced the latest technologies of locomotive manufacturing while it has also brought the most advanced equipment or software system, for example, ERP、CAD/CAM and PDM to its management and product design – The production mode of CSR has changed from production-centered to customer-centered.
Only comprehensive strength matters in the era of information
Currently, CSR is comprehensively promoting the information construction in order to maintain its competitive edge. The responsible person of Ningbo CSR industrial park stresses that the information construction is a long-term project, considering its strong correlation, single software may have solved some of enterprises’ problems. However, in terms of overall situation, answers to local problems may not be answers to the integration problems. Therefore, they require that the integrator should has obvious technical and service strength to provide a suitable and feasible solution.
When speaking of choosing a CAD application, “Under the overall framework of information construction, we require that the CAD we choose must be able to seamlessly integrate with other software, because it is closely associated with the whole situation of informatization. So we value the real strength of the software providers, they must be able to provide high-quality products as well as timely and convenient technical support.” According to the responsible person of CSR industrial park. “ZWSOFT is an innovative CAD application provider with over 15 years of experience, with which they’ve convinced me that they are capable of handling all sorts of problems we may encounter during information integration. More importantly, even Baosteel and Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group have chosen ZWCAD, and they seem to highly recommend it, so we are confident that we have made the right choice.” He added.
Go global together with ZWCAD
ZWCAD has become the most important 2D design application during their design and production process and it is widely used their core sector – technology department, undertaking their high intensity design tasks.
CSR is going global. The reasonable price of ZWCAD allows them to allocate their resources more properly so they can really focus on the R&D of transportation equipment. Also, the customization service that ZWSOFT provides tailors exactly what they want based on ZWCAD platform.
ZWCAD Software Co., Ltd. is an international CAD software provider through its network of over 300 partners in 80+ countries and regions. Its product ZWCAD is used by CAD designers across the AEC and MCAD industries.
