Showcasing the power of generative design software to streamline the budgetary proposal process

The Xylem ANZ team worked with Transcend to incorporate ICEAS SBR designs as part of the Transcend Design Generator (TDG). Transcend was able to interface with Xylem’s existing design tools to create a ‘one stop shop’ for budgetary proposals and preliminary design of full scope treatment systems.

Background

Problem

Xylem’s commercial teams were heavily dependent on engineering resources from business units who have their own workflows and priorities – resulting in long response times to customers and variable output quality.
