Body Fastener Designer is a role dedicated to the design and instantiation of fasteners in Transportation & Mobility Body Structure Engineering Process

Body Fastener Designer accelerates complex body in white fastened assemblies design, simulation and manufacturing, thanks to automated fasteners instantiation capabilities based on company standards and rules.


For each general fastening technology, specific fastening process codes along with their matching relevant parameters can be set up in a standard file (which can be fully customized by the customer).

Each fastener is modelized as a unitary object fastener and is integrated in the search, lifecycle and configuration capabilities.

Fasteners have joined zone where the parts that are fastened are specified. You can create, edit and delete fasteners. In addition, flat reports can be generated from the app to list the data that can be imported to a neutral ASCII text format, providing opening with customer legacy systems.

  • Perform  the complete definition of the fasteners of the vehicle body in white with the most detailed level of the design
  • Key functions supporting Concurrent Engineering, Lifecycle & Change Management and  Downstream processes  (Ex: Manufacturing, Simulation...)
  • Enforce company standards and rules usage, reducing number of errors
  • Reduce errors of tolerancing and drawing interpretation
