About Faber-Castell Malaysia

Faber-Castell Malaysia was established in 1978 and it commenced production of natural rubber and PVC-FREE erasers back in 1980. Over the course of the years, it developed into one of the largest eraser manufacturer in the world producing over 500 million pieces of erasers a year. In 1993, a new factory was built in Subang Jaya near Kuala Lumpur. Apart from being the first producer in Malaysia to manufacture writing instrument with GEL technology, this production facility started manufacturing refillable markers and highlighters in 2010 in addition to erasers.

Challenge

  • Users need to save a lot of back up files
    Without proper feature inserted into the model during the designing stage, the file is easy to corrupt. The process to recover file is hard and time consuming.
  • Software not flexible
    It is very time consuming when doing complicated profile design. A lot of definitions need to be defined first.
  • Do not have proper feature history
    Hard to do modification, there is a need to study the whole design process to do modification, even for small changes
